Match Report

 TTO came out with high energy, spurred on by a vocal home crowd. USA balanced it well with good energy of their own. USA were the stronger team, dominating the possession and territorial game, but TTO continued to make strong tackles to deny clear goal scoring opportunities. Julianna Tornetta and Woods combined well to earn the USA’s first PC which earned a second in the 13th minute. The second was scored by Julianna Tornetta on a rebound. One minute later Major doubled the lead with a tap in after more good work by Woods. A minute later USA scored a third when Matson shot powerfully through GK Escayg’s legs. USA’s 3rd PC brought a good save from substitute GK Smith and Woods shot wide from the rebound. USA’s 4th PC led to a deflected goal by Major in the 28th minute and continuing their trend of conceding quickly gave up a fifth after an unfortunate slip by Lee led to a 2-v-1 against Smith for a simple tap in by Woods. USA finished the first half strongly forcing Smith to stand tall to make a double save on her last post.

The second half started similarly as the first with an even flow to the game. Matson earned a green card for an over exuberant tackle on TTO skipper Brathwaite. Then after a brief period of midfield exchanges USA added a 6th goal through a dominant Vitesse. TTO seemed to be resisting the trend of conceding in bunches when Hoffman added a 7th via a PC flick in the 48th minute. Two minutes later another USA PC flick from Hurff crashed off of the right upright. USA upped their intensity employing a very aggressive press, pushing the TTO team right back to their circle. Sophia Tornetta, Woods, Vitesse and Hoffman all made strong runs at the TTO defense. The pressure eventually led to another PC that was well saved by Smith. A PC in the 57th minute led to a Moyer tap in of the rebound. A PC in the 65th minute led to a Matson variation tap in at the near post. Two minutes later a poorly defended sideline restart gave Hoffman all the time in the world to shoot and the resulting rebound was tapped in by Major. USA continued to press hard, but sisters Savannah and Shania de Freitas worked well to prevent further goals. Final score USA 10-0.
