MOST COMMENTED

[U.S. WOMEN] In the first game it has ever played in snow, the U.S. women's national team defeated Mexico, 1-0, on Wednesday night in Sandy, Utah.

Abby Wambach scored the game’s lone goal in the 60th minute, tying her with the legendary Michelle Akers for third on the USA’s all-time scoring list with 105 goals, behind only Mia Hamm (158) and Kristine Lilly (129).

Snow blanketed the field before and during the game played with a bright yellow Nike ball.

Like in Sunday's 3-0 win over Mexico, the Americans dominated. They had a 21-2 shot advantage in San Diego and a 20-4 advantage on Wednesday.

Mexican goalkeeper Erika Vanegas made 12 saves including several spectacular stops.

Forward Alex Morgan, who played the entire second half, and defender Brittany Taylor, who played the last 12 minutes, earned their first caps for the USA.
