The USA U19 Women's National Team completed their series against Chile in Santiago, Chile with a 3 win, zero loss and one tie record. USA earned a 2-0 victory over the Chilean Team in the final match of the series.

USA led Chile, 1-0 at the half. Abby Beltrani (East Setauket, NY) connected the ball with Allison Evans (Macungie, Pa) who slipped a shot past the keeper with less than one minute remaining.

Nikki Parsley (Milford, DE) found Maxine Fluharty (Millsboro, DE) for USA's second and final goal of the match.
