Alex Morgan leads USWNT past Canada

us logo small.jpgU.S. forward Alex Morgan had two goals and two assists to lead the women’s national team to a 4-0 win over Canada in Sunday’s final of the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament.

Both teams had already qualified for the summer games in London.

Forward Abby Wambach also had two goals, but the story of the day was Morgan, who made her first start of the tournament and first start alongside Wambach. As you may well know, Morgan is the longtime girlfriend of Sounders FC midfielder and fellow Cal product Servando Carrasco.

Richland native and UW product Hope Solo earned the shutout in goal.

Here are some other notes:

— Don’t forget to buy your tickets for the March 7 home leg of a CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal against Mexico’s Santos Laguna. They go on sale at 10 a.m. and are available by phone at 800-745-3000 or online at the team website.

— Here are some interesting clips from SoundersFC.com: a 1v1 with rookie forward Babayele Sodade and also an introspective on the work that goes into moving camp to Arizona.

— Our old friend Jose Romero wrote this story on Federal Way native Kelyn Rowe, now a New England Revolution midfielder, for the league website.

— Here’s the latest from Soccer AM’s “Showboat” and more amazing skill from a talented Tottenham duo that wasn’t included, but should’ve been.
