U.S. tops Japan in women's soccer


Cary North Carolina — Heather O'Reilly had a goal and set up another to lead the United States women to a 2-0 win over Japan on Wednesday in the Americans' next-to-last friendly before the Women's World Cup.

Amy Rodriguez also scored and Hope Solo made three saves in her second straight shutout to help the U.S. claim its second win over Japan in a five-day span and its third of the year.

The Americans wrap up their pre-World Cup warmup schedule June 5 against Mexico. Three weeks later, they play their World Cup opener against South Korea in Dresden, Germany.
