US Women Survive Brave Trinidad and Tobago, But Questions Linger

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon As has happened so many times before, Abby Wambach scored when her team needed her most, hammering home an Alex Morgan cross in the 54th minute to give the US a 1-0 lead it would never relinquish last night in chilly Kansas City.  The goal was more relief than anything, giving […]

70 Days Until USA vs. Ghana: Monday Musings

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon A break for Final Four weekend and it ends up being a short and sad one for your author, whose Florida Gators fell to Connecticut 63-53 in the national semifinals.

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Boca Raton, FL– On a sun-splashed South Florida Saturday afternoon on a pristine pitch, the USWNT dismantled a Russia team that bunkered from the beginning 7-0, remaining unbeaten under Tom Sermanni and in their last 41 matches.

Unblemished: US Women Handle Brazil in Orlando to Cap Unbeaten 2013
