US 2, New Zealand 0
US women move to soccer semifinals
These were supposed to be the Hope Solo Olympics for the US women’s football team. Or the Alex Morgan Games. Instead, they belong so far to the old reliable, Abby Wambach, who has scored in every match to lead the Americans into the semifinals. The 32-year-old striker slid onto a pass in the 27th minute Friday to knock home her fourth goal of the tournament and then celebrated with a cartwheel in the United States’s 2-0 win over New Zealand in the quarterfinals of the Olympic tournament.
