July 30, 2019 — Pan American Games women: USA 5, Mexico 0

If nothing else, the U.S. women’s field hockey team’s 5-0 thumping of Mexico in the first matchday of the 2019 Pan American Games showed that any one of several players have the capability of putting the ball into the goal cage.

Danielle Grega, Lauren Moyer, Ashley Hoffman, Amanda Magadan, and Erin Matson scored for the Americans in a span of just 14 minutes. For that segment of the game, it was very much U.S. women’s soccer vs. Thailand revisited.

Mexico, it must be said, had its chances including a series of five penalty corners to end the third quarter, but the U.S. defense survived the onslaught.

The women take on Chile tomorrow, a team which pounded host Peru 13-0 in the other Pool B match from yesterday.
