USWNT to Face Off Against Pan American Rivals
19 Jan, 2015
Lancaster, PA, to Host International Matches
The U.S. Women’s National Team isn’t quietly easing into 2015 but rather attacking it with ferocity.
Team USA is priming their pre-Olympic year by contending against Pan American rival Argentina at the Home of Hockey in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in mid-February. Argentina recently hosted and won the Champions Trophy, equaling The Netherlands and Australia’s win record of six-time Champions.
A veteran squad with an extensive history of holding one of the top three FIH World Rankings, Argentina meets the United States again after a tug-of-war battle of inches and minutes at the 2014 Rabobank Hockey World Cup. At this tournament, Argentina clenched a third place medal at the World Cup in a 2-1 win over the United States. Although a historical marker on Team USA’s timeline by making their first appearance in a medal match since the 1994 World Cup, the red, white and blue remain with vision in clear focus.
“We’re delighted Argentina has accepted the series,” said U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach Craig Parnham. “I am very much looking forward to some intense matches. Argentina is a world class opponent and it's a great opportunity for us to continue to grow and develop our group."
