Diamond Bar player leads U.S. to 4-2 victory over France

Alex Morgan’s Olympic debut could not have been better.

The Diamond Bar woman continued her torrid scoring streak this year with two goals to lead the United States to a 4-2 victory over France to open the London Games in style after a scare in the first 14 minutes.

Morgan scored a brilliant equalizer in the 31st minute and then tapped in a second-half goal in the 66th minute as the Americans got past their toughest group challenge.

The United States defeated France in the semifinals of the 2011 World Cup in Germany.
