U.S. women beat Costa Rica 7-2 in rainy exhibition

Curated by

 

The U.S. led 2-0 on goals by Lloyd and O’Reilly when lightning in the area forced a weather delay in the 15th minute. The crowd is amazing, even amongst the thunderstorms and the lightning. The majority of the sellout crowd of 20,535 stayed through the rain delay, and those fans were rewarded when the U.S. scored three times in the first 8 minutes after play resumed.

 

 

  • The U.S. made it 6-0 in the 31st minute when Costa Rica’s Katherine Alvarado inadvertently knocked the ball into her own team’s net.
  • Wambach started the flurry in the 18th minute by scoring her 184th career international goal on an assist from Lori Chalupny, who announced Monday she was retiring from international competition at the end of this tour.
  • Although rain hadn’t started to fall when the game was delayed due to lightning, the stoppage featured heavy rain and dozens of lightning strikes.
