Ferns lose to US

The Timaru Herald - - SPORT -

The Foot­ball Ferns’ were outscored but not out­classed in their 3-1 loss to the United States in Denver on Satur­day. Two goals from Julie Ertz had the hosts in front at half­time at Dick’s Sport­ing Goods Park, but Han­nah Wilkin­son hit back with 15 min­utes re­main­ing to set up a tense fin­ish, only for Alex Mor­gan to then re­store her side’s two-goal lead five min­utes later. Wilkin­son has now scored the Ferns’ last three goals against the US, who are ranked No 1 in the world.
