By Sean McCaffery, April 21, 2018

Group B play in this tourney has begun for the US team and they opened in style with a large margin of victory along with the shutout. Costa Rica did not help themselves with an own goal and the 3 headed goals for the US. In control from opening to closing whistles, the own goal came at just 4 minutes follolwed by the first headed one by Peyton Linnehan at 15 minutes. The 2nd half saw Kennedy Wesley and Sophia Jones tally from corner kicks. See all the goals @ussoccer_ynt. Jones and Kennedy had these as their first goals in the competition, the last goal kept the US in the top spot as Canada beat Bermuda 3-0 . Linnehan had a bright spot in the game as she made a run at goal putting her shot off the crossbar after weaving and dribbling, leaving many defenders behind.  Next up, USWNT faces Bermuda Sunday at 10p.m. ET on
