Team USA Notches Third Victory in Chile Series

CHULA VISTA, Calif. – July 21, 2014 – The U.S. Men’s National Team recorded another well-deserved win today against Chile, taking a 3-0 lead in the summer series. After a 1-1 half time score, the squad came out strong with two goals in the first 13 minutes after the break. Although dominating the second half, the U.S. side was unable to capitalize on additional scoring opportunities for the remainder of the game.

Chile got on the scoreboard first after taking advantage of a penalty corner opportunity in the 9th minute of the match. With only a few minutes left in the first half, Tyler Sundeen (Simi Valley, Calif.) found the back of the net to even the score to one goal a-piece heading into the break. Two minutes into the second half, Paul Singh (Simi Valley, Calif.) converted on a penalty corner to give Team USA the 2-1 lead. At the 48 minute mark, Will Holt (Camarillo, Calif.) scored Team USA’s third goal of the match. The final result stood 3-1 in favor of the red, white and blue.

“I do think that we need to be more clinical in the attacking 25,” said Head Coach Chris Clements, content with the squad’s performance. “We continue to show great progress every game with this young group of players. We are looking forward to build on the momentum and will be back tomorrow for game four of the series.”
