FULLERTON — The U.S. women's soccer team made a rare Southern California appearance Saturday, and showed local fans why they are the world's most dominant team.
Tisha Venturini and Kristine Lilly each scored two goals to lead the United States to a 6-0 exhibition victory over the Netherlands before a crowd of 5,116 at Cal State Fullerton's Titan Stadium.
The United States, which won the 1991 Women's World Championship and placed third in 1995, is preparing for the Olympics.
In the 12th minute, Lilly dribbled down the sideline and crossed the ball into the box. Michelle Akers tapped it back to Venturini, who sent a grounder into the net to start the scoring binge.
Julie Foudy scored three minutes later, Lilly scored her two goals in the 24th and 27th minutes and Venturini scored her second goal in the 34th minute.
