The U.S. Women's National Team won the 2008 Peace Queen Cup with a 1-0 victory over Canada as midfielder Angela Hucles scored two minutes into second-half stoppage time.

With the match seemingly headed to overtime, a Canadian defender committed a foul about 35 yards from the goal on the right. Spying Lauren Cheney open inside the penalty box, Hucles took the free kick quickly. The ball skipped into the penalty area, but too far for Cheney, whose run might have distracted Canadian goalkeeper Erin McLeod. The innocuous looking pass then caught McLeod off-balance. She got a piece of the ball, but it skidded by her right leg and under her arms before rolling into the net.

It was the second time this year that Hucles has scored a stoppage-time winner. She also bagged a dramatic goal against Australia on May 3 in Birmingham, Ala., giving the USA a 5-4 victory with a 94th minute score.

Hucles won the Golden Ball as the Most Valuable Player in the tournament for her effort, and the win marked the second time the USA has defeated Canada by a 1-0 score to win the Peace Queen Cup, doing the same in the inaugural tournament in 2006.
