US Tops Haiti to Advance in World Cup Qualifying
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. women's soccer team completed Part I of its trip to the 2015 World Cup by doing the expected, dominating play Monday night in a 6-0 win over Haiti to finish unbeaten -- and unscored upon -- in group play in the CONCACAF championship.
Abby Wambach had two goals, and Carli Lloyd, Meghan Klingenberg, Christen Press and Morgan Brian also scored for the Americans, who advanced to the semifinals to be played Friday and Sunday at the Philadelphia Union's stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania.
The top three teams qualify for next year's World Cup in Canada, while the fourth-place team will face Ecuador in a playoff.
