U.S. Women's Soccer Team: Golden!!!

by at . Comments

It took a last-second goal by Alex Morgan to send the U.S. Women's Soccer Team into its Gold Medal matchup against Japan, but no such heroics were required to earn the Yanks a revenge-filled victory today:

Yes, we did! By a score of 2-1, America took down the team that shocked us in last summer's World Cup finals.

Carli Lloyd scored in the eighth and 54th minutes of the game, with Yuki Ogimi netting a shot in the 63rd minute, and the U.S. held on for the prize it had been aiming for over the past two weeks.

An Olympic record crowd for women's soccer (80,203) at Wembley Stadium watched Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and company pile on to each other when the final whistle sounded, as bars and offices across the county broke out into chants and toasts just a few moments ago.

Canada, meanwhile, defeated France earlier in the day to earn the Bronze.
