Abby Wambach and Sydney Leroux provided the goals, one in each half, as the U.S. Olympic women's soccer team posted a 2-0 victory over New Zealand in a quarterfinal match Friday at the 2012 London Olympics in Manchester. For Leroux, it was her first Olympic goal while Wambach scored her fourth goal as the U.S. improved to 4-0. The Americans outshot the Kiwis, 22-10. Next up for the USA will be a semifinal match against either Canada or Great Britain. The U.S.-New Zealand showdown featured four former Stanford players -- Ali Riley of New Zealand and the USA's Rachel Buehler, Kelley O'Hara and Nicole Barnhart.
