By CAITLIN MURRAY

The U.S. Women's National Team have ended the Algarve Cup on a high note.

Bouncing back from two uncharacteristic losses, the USWNT finished off the tournament Wednesday with a convincing 3-0 win against North Korea.

It wasn't the showing the USWNT were hoping for at the annual tournament– they finished in 7th place overall, their lowest placement ever.

A Novel Conclusion

Well, the USWNT certainly wrote an Algrave Cup story we have never seen before. After losing to Japan in group game #2, the Lady Nats fell short in a rally attempt against Denmark and now playing North Korea in the seventh place match is the only drama remaining. That means, win or loss, this will be the team's worst ever finish at the tournament.

Against the backdrop of a starving nation, he enriched uranium, trained missiles on South Korea and Japan and generally gave everyone the heebie jeebies with the supremely iffy accuracy of the North Korean military's test fires.

Prediction confirmed: Germany versus China was a great game, although my Venus came on and off the pitch far too quick, courtesy of a good limp that she picked up in short time in the game. That said, her departure made way for Ricarda Kiessling, who scored an equalizer in extra time, and thank heavens for that, since the Germans were robbed repeatedly by the referee, who missed two handballs in the box.
