London - It took two extra time periods and more then 120 minutes, but the United States women’s soccer team pulled out a dramatic victory over Canada, advancing to the gold medal round.
Just when it looked as if the game would be decided on penalty kicks, Alex Morgan scored the winning goal in the 123rd and final minute of the game. Standing inside the penalty area, Morgan was poised to receive the pass from Heather Rilley. When the ball arrived, Morgan headed it into the back of the net, just above the outstretched arms of the Canadian goalkeeper.
Both team traded goals throughout the game, with Canada drawing first blood. At the end of regulation time they were tied at 3-3. Neither team managed to score during either of the two extra time periods. It was not until the game was in the final minute of injury time that the US managed to score and avoid depending on penalty kicks to decide the winner.
The US will meet Japan in the gold medal round on Thursday, a rematch of last years Wolrd Cup final. Canada will face France to determine the bronze medal winner.
