Team USA had already beaten Japan three times this year, but this was the game that mattered most.
The American women, seeking their first World Cup title since 1999, dominated during much of the final game on Sunday. They outshot Japan by a 29-12 margin and a 6-3 margin on goal and led twice. But in the end, after two 15-minute extra time periods, the teams were tied up at 2-2 – and it all came down to penalty kicks.

The Easter practice of egg decorating has meaning behind it: the egg itself represents rebirth, something early Pagans celebrated during the spring season, and was later adopted by Christians to represent the resurrection themes of the Easter holiday. Back in the olden days, colored eggs were decorated in springy hues and given away to lovers and friends sort of the same way we do with Valentines. The egg tradition has held over as the holiday evolved, with most people using store-bought dyeing packages to color their hard boileds.
This year, stray from the usual and create unique Easter egg decorations with the help of these video tutorials.
Though technically a religious holiday, Easter has become more synonymous with milk chocolate candies in the shapes of eggs and bunnies, fruity snacks in springy hues and all sorts of decadent desserts.
