RSA v USA Interview with Katelyn FalgowskiPosted June 13, 2015

USA made it two wins from two as they came from a goal down to beat South Africa 4-1 and become the third team to confirm their place in the quarter-finals of the competition, joining Ireland and Germany.

Dirkie Chamberlain had given South Africa an early lead when she burst through and planted the ball past Jackie Briggs. But the Americans were in aggressive mood and they set about dismantling the South African defence in a powerful show of defiance.

Katie O’Donnell was a constant threat and their speed in general caused all sorts of problems. Lauren Crandall – on her 250th international appearance – pumped a corner shot at goal which took a nick off a defender and hit the net for 1-1.

Katelyn Falgowski – another celebrant on her 200th cap – added the second in brilliant style, exchanging passes down the right with Michelle Vittese and slamming home from mid-circle. Kat Sharkey made it 3-1 with a tap-in after Paige Selenski cut back from the baseline and hit across the face of goal. And Jill Witmer completed the win in the last 90 seconds when Kelsey Kolojejchick picked her out at the back post.
