Posted on 22 July 2009 by ASN Staff

The U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team defeated the Canadian U-20 Women’s National Team 5-1 during a training camp at the University of Colorado in Boulder that was held almost concurrently with a U.S. U-20 camp. The U.S. U-18s also picked up a 2-1 win over the Real Colorado Cougars. Against Canada, forward Chioma Ubogagu scored just four minutes into the match after she ran onto a cross from Sam Johnson and finished from the top of the penalty area. Johnson scored herself in the 41st minute. The USA made it 3-0 just two minutes into the second half as Mandy Laddish struck a perfect free-kick from 25 yards out, blasting it over the head of the Canadian goalkeeper. In the 54th minute midfielder Kaelia Ohai went on a winding dribbling run from the right side of the field, turned the corner and slotted her shot into the far post. Canada pulled a goal back just seconds later from Jonelle Filigno, who also plays for the full Canadian Women’s National Team, but the USA finished the scoring in the 65th minute after Ahsha Smith ran down a pass from Michelle Cruz and tucked her shot into the near post. Against Real Colorado, all the goals were scored in a four-minute span on either side of halftime, with the U.S. midfielder Kealia Ohai scoring in the 45th minute, Real equalizing in the 46th and Mollie Pathman netting the winner in the 48th minute.
