Olympics: Result of U.S. women's soccer vs. Colombia

By Associated Press


GLASGOW, Scotland >> The U.S. women's soccer team made it two wins in two games Saturday and remembered an injured teammate in a 3-0 win over Colombia.

Megan Rapinoe scored in the 33rd minute for the Americans. After her goal, she reached into her sock and pulled out a birthday message for Ali Krieger, who blew out her knee in a qualifying match in January. Krieger turned 28 Saturday.

Abby Wambach made it 2-0 in the 74th, and Carli Lloyd scored in the 77th.

The win all but assured a quarterfinal berth for the Americans, pending the results of Saturday's other matches. The U.S. has one group game remaining, against North Korea in Manchester on Tuesday.
