USA Women's Soccer Wins Gold

After a disappointing start to the Olympic games, the United States Women's soccer team was able to fight back and win Gold at the Olympics. A week prior to the games star forward Abby Wambach went down with a broken leg. The women then lost the first game to Norway 2-0, which created scary thoughts for all watching back in the states. If the women were to regain the gold medals again, they would need to pick up the pace big time.

The ladies beat Brazil in the finals today 1-0 in overtime. The game was extremely exciting and was back and forth. The skilled Brazilians had there moments in the overtime periods but the US was able to hold on. The winning goal by Lloyd, came in the 96th minute of extra time.
