US Women defeat Mexico in the snow 1-0

In the first ever US Women’s national team match in snowy conditions in its 443-game history, Amy Wambach’s scored her 105th international goal to defeat the Mexico women 1-0. Wambach is now tied with Michelle Akers for third on the USA’s all-time scoring list.

Wambach said after the match, “We were walking out before the game started and I said, ‘If anybody scores, snow angels for sure.”

Describing the scene after Wambach’s goal in the 60th minute, the US Soccer website said, “Wambach then led a group of U.S. players into the right corner for a group session of snow angels. Several U.S. defenders who weren’t involved in the celebration dropped to the snow near midfield and made snow angles of their own.”

Mexico managed just four shots the entire game with only two on goal.

From the Independence, Amy Rodriguez started the match but came off after the first half. Lori Lindsey came on in the 73rd minute to replace US captain Shannon Boxx.
