Coverage of women's soccer in the US. If it's not here...it's not important...

It was a school night, and yet 11,933 fans came to the first-ever soccer match in Ford Field to watch the U.S. women's national team.
The Americans boasted homegrown stars in defender Kate Markgraf (Bloomfield Hills) and Lindsay Tarpley (Kalamazoo), and the crowd clearly came to support its fellow Michiganians.
The U.S. team defeated China, 1-0, thanks to a Heather O'Reilly goal off a Tarpley assist in the 32nd minute.
