[OLYMPIC COUNTDOWN]
The U.S. women's national team gained revenge for its only blemish of the year with a resounding 6-0 win over Canada before 9,322 fans Saturday in Washington, D.C.,

Forward Natasha Kai scored her first career hat trick to lead the Americans in the final game of the three-game domestic tour. Lindsay Tarpley, Carli Lloyd and Leslie Osborne also added goals. Abby Wambach dished for three assists.

Kai and Tarpley lead the USA with 10 goals and nine goals, respectively, in 2008. They are both career highs.

The teams played to a 1-1 tie in the championship game of the Concacaf Olympic qualifying tournament a month earlier. That game was won by the USA in penalty kicks.

The USA outshot Canada 21-2, and held it without a shot in the second half.

"I'm thrilled," said U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage. "We talked about changing up the rhythm in the attack. My dream is to take this game to the next level and I think we can do it. We're halfway there. The way we played today, there were so many good things I could stand here for an hour just talking about how good it was. And still it could be better."

Next up for the U.S. women (13-0-1 under Sundhage) is the Peace Queen Cup in mid-June in South Korea, where they will face Australia, Brazil and Italy in first-round play, and friendlies in Norway and Sweden in early July.
