PR grad LePeilbet helps US women open Olympics with 4-2 win
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — An early start to the Olympics turned into an early hole for the U.S. women's soccer team, which gave up two quick goals before unleashing an attack the rest of the world will find hard to stop.
Crystal Lake native Amy LePeilbet, a 2000 graduate of Prairie Ridge High School, started on defense and played the whole game for the U.S.
Abby Wambach used her size and strength to put in a header, Alex Morgan applied her speed to chip one over the goalkeeper and Carli Lloyd broke the tie with a 25-yard rocket. All of which sent the two-time defending goal medalists to a 4-2 victory over France on Wednesday as they opened their London Games far from London.
