In the 67th minute, after dominating possession, the US doubled the lead. Megan Rapinoe subbed on and promptly delivered a perfect corner to the head of Williams.

Rapinoe sent in another perfect cross from just inside the corner in the 73rd minute. Lindsay Horan headed the ball home to extend the lead.

Carli Lloyd finally got onto the score sheet after quite a few shots. She muscled her way past her defenders to head home the nail into Haiti’s coffin.
Up next for the US Women: Panama on Friday January 29th, then Costa Rica on Monday February 3rd to finish up group round play.
