Stanford's Morris scores twice for U.S. Under-23 team in victory

 

The U.S. Under-23 Men's National Team, led by a pair of goals from Stanford's Jordan Morris, started its run in the 2015 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Championship with a 3-1 win against Canada at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan.

Morris found the net before Canada could even touch the ball, punching in the opening goal before a minute of soccer had even been played.

The U.S. was dominant offensively and defensively and took a 1-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. It was more of the same when the team came out in the second frame, with Morris cashing in another goal in the 73rd minute.

The U.S. defense was finally beat in the 81st minute when Candada scored off a corner kick to pull with in one, but the U.S. would close the game out on a high note with Luis Gil, slotting home a penalty to ice the match in stoppage time. The U.S. next plays Cuba at Sporting Park on Saturday.
