TEAM USA Defeats Germany, Advances to Championship

Football America - 15% off Storewide


Vantaa, Finland. The defending champion USA women's tackle football team secured
a return to the gold medal final by dominating Germany in a 107-7 victory today in
the Women's World Championship.

The U.S. squad (2-0) entered the stadium to patriotic chants of U-S-A while enthusiastically
waving an American flag. They were clearly thrilled to be representing their country on the
anniversary of its creation.

Sharon Vasquez received the opening kickoff for the U.S. and returned it to Germany's 36 yard line.
On the 3rd play from scrimmage quarterback Sami Grisafe connected with Jeanette Gray on a 31 yard
touchdown pass. The successful two point conversion gave the U.S. an 8-0 lead.

Germany then returned the ensuing kickoff 27 yards to midfield and picked up another 15 yards on an
American penalty. Germany then stunned the U.S. by scoring a 34 yard rushing touchdown on their
first play from scrimmage. The extra point kick was good and the Germans pulled to 8-7 just minutes
into the first quarter.

This is the first time in history that Team USA had been scored upon in the international competition.
The U.S. team responded with a furious onslaught, scoring touchdowns on each of their next eight
first half possessions, to lead 60-7 at halftime. The Germans were never able to mount another scoring
threat, gaining just 44 total yards of offense in the game.

The U.S. scoring barrage continued in the second half, as ultimately 10 players had touchdowns for
Team USA. Odessa Jenkins(3), Brandy Hatcher(2), Cassey Brick(2), Katie Sowers(2) had multiple scores
and Kim Klesse, Adrienne Smith, Alexis Snyder, Jeanette Gray, Nicole Vilarino and Liz Sowers had a
touchdown each.

The U.S. offense kept Germany on their heels with a variety of offensive sets and formations. The
German team struggled to adjust as the Americans shifted constantly from a spread offense to a
power attack, while intermittently utilizing a no-huddle approach.

Team USA defensive back Katie Sowers had 5 interceptions and returned two for touchdowns, earning her
MVP honors for the game. Leading tacklers for the U.S. were Jennifer Plummer, Vicky Eddy, and Andreana
Campolo.

The American team had won the inaugural 2010 competition by outscoring their opponents 201-0 enroute to
a gold medal. This 2013 team has secured its own place in history by setting a new scoring record of 107
points.

U.S. Head Coach John Konecki has his team peaking at the right time. The offense was explosive and
operated with stunning precision while amassing 597 yards of total offense. Defensive Coordinator
Adam Lewandowski is the architect of the smothering U.S. defense which has forced 12 turnovers in the
past two games while holding both opponents to less than a hundred yards of combined total offense.

Team USA will play the winner of Canada/Finland for the gold medal in the World Championship on
Saturday July 6th at 7pm local time at ISS Stadium. Additional info and live updates are available at
