The United States were stopped early on before finally breaking through against Chile on Tuesday night.
The USWNT dominated Chile in the opener of their two-game set on August 31, and it was more of the same on Tuesday. Carli Lloyd scored a pair of second-half goals and Tobin Heath potted a goal and assisted on two others as the U.S. took a 4-0 win.
Here’s how things played out:
Mallory Pugh broke through for the U.S. at the 34th minute, when she headed in a ball lobbed in by Tobin Heath after Alex Morgan's penalty kick was blocked by Chilean goalie Christiane Endler.
Endler would make another incredible save just moments later, when Rose Lavelle broke free with a one-on-one chance. The goalkeeper blocked Lavelle's strike, keeping the deficit at one.
However, the United States would find the net again minutes after, when Heath stuck out her foot to fire the ball through the net, giving the U.S. a two-goal advantage in the 38th minute. It marked the 20th career international goal scored by Heath.
The USWNT came out quickly in the second half, with Carli Lloyd, subbed in for Pugh, finishing off Heath's pass off a set piece situation.
Lloyd's goal was the 101st of her international career, moving her into fifth all-time on the USWNT scoring list, passing Tiffeny Millbrett. She wasn't done yet, however, adding a second tally in extra time to cap the scoring with some highlight reel moves.
With the victory, the American side improved to 18-0-3 in the last 13 months, going without a loss since falling to Australia in the 2017 Tournament of Nations on July 27.
Next up for the U.S. is an October 4 matchup against Mexico in the 2018 Concacaf Women's Championship at Sahlen’s Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park in North Carolina, the beginning of World Cup qualifying.
