6.3.04 - The USA won the 2004 CONCACAF Women’s Pre-Olympic Tournament after defeating Mexico in the finals 3:2 at the Estadio Eladio Rosabal Cordero in Herédia, Costa Rica on Friday, while in an earlier encounter, Canada topped Costa Rica 4:0 for third-place.

With both finalists earning the two CONCACAF berths on Wednesday (3 March) to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, the stars & stripes and tricolor competed for the Confederations’ first-place honour in front of 2,004 spectators in Herédia.

Mexico jumped out to a 2:0 lead in the opening 15 minutes of the match with two consecutive tallies by forward Maribel Dominguez (9th, 15th), but the USA cut the deficit to 2:1 just before halftime with a goal by midfielder Lindsay Tarpley.

In the second half, forward Abby Wambach leveled the score (2:2) for the stars & stripes in the 79th minute and then five minutes later, midfielder Julie Foudy notched the game-winner for the USA in the 3:2 final.

The victory extends the USA’s unbeaten streak, against CONCACAF to 19-games, with their last defeat coming in March 2001 (3:0 loss against Canada).

In the third-place match, two goals by forward Christine Sinclair and one each from midfielder Charmaine Hooper and forward Aysha Jamani led Canada to a 4:0 victory over Costa Rica.
