Girl Power Hot Off the Press: Lindsay Tarpley: / by Kamie Chang Kahlo

Take a look at Lindsay Tarpley, by the age of 21, she had scored two of the most important goals in U.S. soccer history! The first was a rebound shot in the championship game of the 2002 FIFA U-19 World Championship, giving the USA a dramatic 1-0 Foudy & Tarpley sudden death overtime victory over host Canada and the first-ever world title for youth women. Her second came in the 2004 Olympic gold medal game “off a blast from 25-yards out into the lower left corner for the game’s first score.” She has moved into the top-13 all-time scorers in U.S. history! Now that’s Girl Power!!
