TORONTO – Alex Morgan scored twice and Sydney Leroux added a goal to lead the United States over Canada 3-0 Sunday in their first meeting since the Americans' 4-3 overtime win in the semifinals of last year's Olympic women's soccer tournament.
Morgan scored for the top-ranked Americans in the 70th minute when she cut inside defender Emily Zurrer and from the top of the penalty area slotted past goalkeeper Erin McLeod. Morgan scored from the same spot two minutes later, her 44th international goal.
Last August, Morgan's goal in the third and final minute of stoppage time in overtime sent the Americans to the gold-medal game, where the U.S. defeated Japan for its third straight gold medal. Sunday's lineups included 15 of 22 starters from the semifinal.
