Colorado soccer prodigy Mallory Pugh continues to do prodigy things.
The Highlands Ranch native became the youngest U.S. women’s soccer player ever to score a goal in the Olympics on Tuesday night. In the 59th minute of the U.S.’s Group G matchup against Columbia, the 18-year-old Pugh navigated through traffic and buried a left-footed strike into the net.
The goal put the Americans ahead 2-1 in an eventual 2-2 draw.
It also helped the U.S. take the top seed in Group G. The U.S. Women’s National Team will face Sweden at 10 a.m. Aug 12.
This was Pugh’s fourth international goal since making her international debut Aug. 3 against New Zealand.
