East Brunswick’s Heather O’Reilly came up big yesterday in the Olympic Quarterfinal vs. Canada.
The midfielder came on as a replacement and fed Alex Morgan a long cross. Morgan scored on a header at the 123rd minute, giving the team a 4-3 win.
The Olympians move on to the Gold Medal match in Wembley Stadium, Thursday against Japan. It’s a rematch from last year’s World Cup final, when the U.S. lost to Japan on Penalty kicks.
