US women beat Costa Rica 7-2 in rainy exhibition
Not even a thunderstorm could slow down the United States in the latest chapter of its Women's World Cup victory tour. Carli Lloyd and Heather O'Reilly each scored twice and the United States beat Costa Rica 7-2 on Wednesday night in an exhibition game that included an 83-minute weather delay. Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan also scored for the U.S. in its second friendly since winning the Women's World Cup six weeks ago. The Americans beat Costa Rica 8-0 on Sunday in Pittsburgh. "This team is resilient," O'Reilly said. "We bounce back through games, through tough moments of games and in this situation, it was sort of peculiar circumstances that we were able to show our resilience through." The U.S. was playing in Chattanooga a month after the July 16 attacks on two military facilities here that resulted in the deaths of four Marines and a sailor.
