Great victory for the United States, who take the three points home this Sunday. Avery Patterson (7′ 1T, 10′ 1T, 23′ 1T and 48′ 1T), Alexis Missimo (12′ 2T), Emily Mason (34′ 2T) and Andrea Kitahata (37′ 2T) were the authors of the landslide victory of United States at the Felix Sanchez Olympic Stadium.
The figure of the match was Avery Patterson. The United States striker showed his best level by scoring 4 goals and shooting 5 times at the opposite goal.
Emily Mason was also relevant. The United States defender was important for converting 1 goal.
It was a game that had few infractions and had no shocks for the referees.
Puerto Rico’s strategist, Nat González, stopped the starting eleven with a 5-4-1 formation with JLo Varada Vázquez in goal; Estefanía González Cintrón, Natasha Soto, María Sanabria Buono, Emma González and Bryana Pizarro in the defensive line; Karish Rivera de Jesús, Iliana Pardo, Michelle Berndt and Indigo Sims in the middle; and Marilia Nieves-Melchor in attack.
For their part, those chosen by Tracey Kevins took to the field of play with a 4-3-3 scheme with Neeku Purcell under the three sticks; Ayo Oke, Lauren Flynn, Lilly Reale and Laney Rouse on defense; Alexis Missimo, Emily Colton and Talia DellaPeruta at half court; and Alyssa Thompson, Michelle Cooper and Avery Patterson up front.
The judge chosen to direct the match at the Félix Sánchez Olympic stadium was Astrid Gramajo Ramírez.
For the next date, Puerto Rico will play at home against Nicaragua and the United States will host the Dominican Republic.
