The U.S. women beat the Netherlands 3-1 Sunday in Atlanta.
The Dutch scored less than two minutes into the game and led for most of the first half before Team USA settled in. An own goal by Dutch captain Mandy van den Berg, which broke a 1-1 tie in the 50th minute, didn’t help the cause of the Orange.
Next on Team USA’s schedule: back-to-backs against Switzerland on Oct. 19 in Sandy, Utah, and Oct. 23 in Minneapolis.
