GLASGOW, Scotland - If an Olympic torch and five rings are anywhere nearby, count on Carli Lloyd to be making an impact. Lloyd, a native of Delran, scored her second goal in as many games Saturday, capping the scoring in the 77th minute as the U.S. women's soccer team defeated Colombia, 3-0, at Hampden Park. The victory assured the Americans of a berth in the quarterfinals, with one more game of group play remaining, on Tuesday against North Korea in Manchester. The Rutgers graduate had scored the go-ahead goal in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over France.

There were a few smiling faces in Fado's Irish Pub in Center City yesterday after the United States lost the women's World Cup title game to Japan after a tense series of penalty kicks. But none of those celebrating were American. "We are feeling happy. I'm almost crying," said Ikuo Hayashi, 31, from Yokosuka, Japan, who was watching with a small group of fellow countrymen. Hayashi, who was clad in a Japanese jersey and scarf, admitted that some of the American fans weren't all that welcoming.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - On her final victory lap, Pia Sundhage hopped and high-stepped her way around the field. As the U.S. women's national soccer team coach soaked in the cheers from the capacity crowd, her team began serenading her by belting out, "You Are My Sunshine. " It was a fitting tribute, since Sundhage has had the squad in harmony for five years. It was a fitting way to go out, too. Abby Wambach broke a tie early in the second half, and Alex Morgan added two goals and two assists, helping the U.S. team beat Australia, 6-2, Wednesday night in an international friendly that was Sundhage's farewell game.

The recent steps and missteps of the National Football League as it handled and mishandled the situation involving running back Ray Rice have, in some ways, improved the national dialogue concerning domestic abuse and, in others, merely filled the air with noise and static. Everyone seems to have an agenda, an angle to pursue. The NFL had one (get this thing over with). Rice had one. Sponsors had one. Social scientists. Journalists. Women's rights organizations. Politicians. It was an apple big enough for everyone to take a bite.

Former U.S. women's national soccer team goalkeeper Jillian Loyden, who starred at Villanova, spoke out publicly against Hope Solo on Monday, urging that the team's goalkeeper not be permitted to play until her domestic-abuse case is resolved. "U.S. Soccer needs to send the right message," Loyden, a Vineland native, wrote in a USA Today op-ed piece. "They need to communicate that domestic violence is never OK and that it will not be tolerated. " In November, Solo pleaded not guilty to two counts of misdemeanor domestic abuse.

LONDON - The game was labeled a grudge match, a chance for redemption for the U.S. women's soccer team. But it was also about maintaining a legacy. And creating a new one. The United States won its third consecutive Olympic gold medal on Thursday night at Wembley Stadium, beating Japan - which had defeated the U.S. team in last summer's World Cup final. The Americans, who clung to the 2-1 final score through the tense closing minutes, have won four of the five gold medals ever awarded in the Olympics.

MANCHESTER, England - Abby Wambach was counting. Out loud. Within earshot of the referee. That's how medals are won, with moments such as those. A wily veteran using a subtle tactic to get the ref to make a call no one ever makes, one that turns the match around. When the game for the gold is all there's left to play, it's usually fitting to immediately sweep away the underbrush that preceded it. Not this time. The United States' semifinal win over Canada in the Olympic women's soccer tournament was so dramatic - and produced such fiery accusations of bias against the referee from the Canadians - that it's taking some extra time to digest it all. "It's definitely draining," U.S. midfielder Megan Rapinoe said Tuesday before boarding the bus to London, where the Americans will play Japan in the Olympic final on Thursday.
