4. UNDER-21 WOMEN: Irish quartet leads USA in England


Kerri Hanks, Michele Weissenhofer, Amanda Cinalli and Brittany Bock, who combined for 63 goals and 50 assists for NCAA Division I runner-up Notre Dame in 2006, will head the U.S. under-21 women's national team that travels to England on Friday for games against three English clubs.

U.S. coach Bill Irwin is bringing 18 players for matches against Blackburn Ladies on March 13, Everton Ladies on March 14 and Leeds Ladies on March 15.
