US Olympic women's soccer team digs the long ball

The U.S. women's soccer team digs the long ball. Maybe a little too much. It's hard to blame the players. With such talented forwards up front, it's tempting to launch Texas Leaguers that travel some 30, 40, 50 yards or more.

Team USA yet to hit full stride

The perfect record in group play can be called perfection, and the two matches without allowing a goal can also be called dominant.
