Big win today for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team at the Summer Olympics today as they defeated The Netherlands 4-2 in a penalty kick shoot out to advance the to Semifinal round.
Connecticut should be proud as Stratford’s very own Alyssa Naeher, the USWNT goalie, made two HUGE saves during the shoot-out to secure the win. Yeah Alyssa! Congrats to the whole team… now let’s bring home that gold medal.
Huge shout-out to shootout hero and Connecticut native @AlyssaNaeher, whose two penalty kick saves against the Olympics top goal scorer helped the @USWNT advance to the semifinals. ⚽️
Keep it up, champ! Can't wait to see what you do in the next round. 🙌 pic.twitter.com/mXQtmobHIG
