Stoppage time just ended and Team USA has completed their quest for a gold medal! Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach, and the crew earned redemption for their 2011 World Cup final loss vs. Japan with a 2-1 victory today. It was Carli Lloyd's (#10) goal at the start of the second half that put the U.S. up 2-0. Japan was only able to net one before time ran out. Today's final caps off a thrilling journey, which included a last-minute, come-from-behind victory in the semis against Canada. It's great to see the joy and pride that the U.S. Women's team played with and inspired in our country - this group are very well-deserving gold medalists!
Everyday, these Olympics prove to be quite exciting. Just moments ago, Alex Morgan put in a header with three minutes left in stoppage time to give Team USA a 4-3 comeback victory over Canada. Two burning questions after this game: will they go all the way for the gold vs. Japan in the final? And how many more marriage proposals will Alex Morgan receive? (shouts Bleacher Report).
