Holiday, Rapinoe lead US to 2-0 win over China

Lauren Holiday scored off a ricochet late in the first half and substitute Megan Rapinoe added another goal, helping the U.S. women’s soccer team to a 2-0 win over China on Sunday in an exhibition game.

The Americans held China to one shot on goal while running their unbeaten streak on home turf to 81 games. The team plays China in another friendly Thursday in San Diego.

Holiday was back in the lineup after missing the Algarve Cup last month because of a family commitment. She scored in the 39th minute — the U.S. finally solving goalkeeper Zhang Yue after a flurry of shots. Holiday nearly had another goal early in the second half, only to have China deflect it away near the goal line.
