U.S., Canada women finish friendly in a tie
May 09, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Sydney Leroux scored in the 78th minute to help the U.S. women’s soccer team tie Canada 1-1 on Thursday night, extending the Americans’ unbeaten streak against the Canadians to 30 games.

Leroux kicked Canadian Rebecca Quinn’s errant crossing header under goalkeeper Erin McLeod in front of 28,255 fans at Investors Group Field, one of six venues for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Leroux leads the U.S. with six goals this year and has 30 overall for the national team, 20-0-5 against Canada since a loss in the 2001 Algarve Cup. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Leroux has scored in three straight games against Canada.

“She loves big moments and she’s come through and she’s been fantastic,” U.S. interim coach Jill Ellis said about Leroux.

Kadeisha Buchanan scored for Canada in the 35th minute. The 18-year-old Buchanan fought off U.S. forward Abby Wambach and defender Ali Krieger, heading the ball into the ground toward the left side of the frame for her first international goal.

“The future is bright,” Canadian teammate Desiree Scott said. “Kadeisha Buchanan, 18 years old, going toe-to-toe with some of the best strikers in the world and she scores a goal tonight. Unbelievable performance.”

Buchanan played physically against Wambach and the other U.S. forwards.

“Defense wins games and we tried,” said Buchanan, from Toronto. “That’s part of my element.”

Notes: The U.S. is 6-2-2 this year. It has a 47-3-6 overall record against Canada in the series that started in 1986. ... Midfielder Lauren Holiday became the 30th U.S. player to earn 100 career caps. Holiday made her debut in 2007. ... Leroux tied Brandi Chastain for 16th place on the U.S. goals lost. ... The Americans will return to action against France on Saturday, June 14, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
