US Women's Soccer Team Beats China


Kristine Lilly has scored a pair of goals to lead the United States women's soccer team to a 4-1 win over China in an international friendly played outside of Chicago in Bridgeview, Illinois.

China got on the scoreboard first Sunday, as Han Duan angled the ball past American goalkeeper Briana Scurry in the 24th minute. But Cat Whitehill scored the equalizer just six minutes later when her spinning shot slipped past China keeper Han Wenxia to leave the teams tied 1-1 at halftime.

The United States took a 2-1 lead in the 59th minute as Aly Wagner converted a penalty kick. Kristine Lilly scored the first of her two goals off a 30-meter free kick in the 85th minute, before sealing the win with an 89th minute chip shot from close range.

Team USA now has 10 wins, no losses and three draws this season, including a 2-0-1 record against China.
