Amy Rodriguez and Team USA Power To Olympic Semis
Aug. 3, 2012
USC's Amy Rodriguez will have the chance to add to her medal tally as the 2008 Olympic gold medalist with Team USA is now bound for the semifinals. Today (Aug. 3), the United States secured a 2-0 win over New Zealand in the quarterfinals.
Rodriguez came on as a sub just before stoppage time today in London. She has appeared in every game of these 2012 Olympic Games for Team USA, as she and the U.S. squad are on the hunt for another gold medal. The United States will next face either Canada or Great Britain in the Aug. 6 semifinals at 11:30 a.m. PT.
An All-American at USC, Rodriguez competed for the Women of Troy from 2005-2008. In her junior season, Rodriguez helped power USC to its first-ever NCAA Championship, as the Trojans won the 2007 title. The following year, Rodriguez had been called up the U.S. ladder to make her Olympic debut. She would go on to serve up the assist on the game-winning goal in the gold-medal game. Most recently, Rodriguez scored the game-winner herself in a 2-1 USA win over Canada in Team USA's 2012 Olympic Send-off Game.
