U-20 USWNT concludes San Diego camp with 1-0 win over Japan
CHULA VISTA, Calif. – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team defeated Japan 1-0 on a 13th minute goal from forward Reilyn Turner to split a pair of matches during a training camp at the Elite Athlete Training Center located south of San Diego.
The USA dropped the first game, 2-1, on Aug. 28 with Turner scoring in that match as well. This time, the USA kept Japan off the board as goalkeeper Halle Mackiewicz made five saves to earn the shutout.
The game-winner came early as defender Makenna Morris got into the attack and slotted a pass across the goal mouth to Turner who finished with her right foot into the left side of the goal.
Head coach Mark Carr called in 20 players for the camp to evaluate players from the younger portion of the U-20 WNT player pool. All the players on the U.S. roster were born in 2001 or 2002. Players born on or after Jan. 1, 2000 are age-eligible for the 2020 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
