Leroux, Morgan fire U.S. to U-20 World Cup title

SANTIAGO, Chile -- The United States won the women's under-20 World Cup on Sunday, beating defending champion North Korea 2-1 on first-half goals from Sydney Leroux and Alex Morgan.

Leroux, who was born in Canada and now plays for UCLA, found the net in the 23rd minute with a shot from inside the box that ricocheted in off the defense, and Morgan, who plays for Cal, scored in the 42nd with a left-footed shot from 20 yards that went high into the goal.

Cha Hu Nam scored for North Korea in the 90th.

The American players celebrated their victory by holding a large white sign reading "Gracias Chile" in large red letters in front of 12,000 cheering fans.

Earlier, Marie Pollmann scored a first-half hat trick to give Germany a 5-3 win over France 5-3 to finish third.

Pollmann found the net in the 10th, 29th and 31st minutes, while teammates Julia Simic in the 67th and Lisa Schwab in the 80th also scored.

Marine Pervier scored twice for France, her first coming just before halftime and her second in the 75th. Marie-Laure Delie added a third in injury time.
