Holiday, Rapinoe score goals as US beats China 2-0 in exhibition game

Lauren Holiday scored off a ricochet late in the first half and substitute Megan Rapinoe added another goal, helping the U.S. women's soccer team to a 2-0 win over China on Sunday in an exhibition game.

The Americans held China to one shot on goal while running their unbeaten streak on home turf to 81 games (71-0-10). The team plays China in another friendly Thursday in San Diego.

Holiday was back in the lineup after missing the Algarve Cup last month because of a family commitment. She scored in the 39th minute — the U.S. finally solving goalkeeper Zhang Yue after a flurry of shots. Holiday nearly had another goal early in the second half, only to have China deflect it away near the goal line.
