The U.S. Women’s National Team rebounded from a lackluster first half to strike three times after the break, two on remarkably similar finishes from Alex Morgan and a stoppage time goal from Sydney Leroux, en route to a 3-0 victory against Canada in front of a sold-out crowd of 22,453 fans.

A partisan crowd filled BMO Field to watch the first match between the two teams since the epic semifinal of the 2012 Olympics, a match the USA won 4-3 on a goal from Morgan in the third minute of stoppage time of the second overtime period. Her 123rd minute score was the latest goal ever scored in FIFA history.

Canada did not register a shot on goal in the match and Stanford grad Nicole Barnhart earned the shutout in goal for the USA.

The USA improved its unbeaten streak to 32 games, with the last loss coming against Japan on March 5 at the 2012 Algarve Cup in Portugal. During that span, the U.S. has scored 97 goals while allowing 23 in 28 wins and four draws.
