Stanford grad Ali Riley, a starting defender for New Zealand, helped keep the Dutch off the board most of the way, but it was not enough as Netherlands claimed a 1-0 victory on Saturday in the Women's World Cup group stage match on Saturday in Canada.

New Zealand, which has lost 10 straight World Cup matches, meets host Canada on Thursday.

"We played well in the second half and we feel if we can do that again we can get some results,” New Zealand coach Tony Readings said. “It is not just about playing well, it is about taking points from these games. We played OK in the first half but OK is not good enough in the World Cup."

The United States gets its first test on Monday against Australia. Stanford grads Christen Press and Kelley O'Hara play for the Americans.

Stanford grads Alina Garciamendez and Teresa Noyola, also a Palo Alto grad, play for Mexico, which meets Columbia on Tuesday.
