WNT Cruises to 4-0 Win against New Zealand before Record-Setting Crowd in St. Louis

In front of a record crowd of 35,817 fans that packed Busch Stadium, the U.S. Women’s National Team cruised to a 4-0 victory against New Zealand in its first match on home soil this year.

After Meghan Klingenberg put the U.S. up 1-0 early in the first half, St. Louis native Lori Chalupny, Julie Johnston and Morgan Brian all scored within a five-minute span late in the second half to put the game away for the USA. The win pushed the WNT’s all-time record against New Zealand to 11-1-1.
