24 Jul 2007 - The USA U-21 team won the Nordic Cup tournament in Finland.
Both Kelsey Carpenter and Stephanie Logterman
started the two group matches, both 1-0 wins against Norway and Sweden, and both
played in the 4-0 win in final against Germany. The trip started with a
5-0 warm-up win against a Finnish team, FC Sports, with Kelsey claiming one of
those five. (The US Soccer story for the final had a 'Photo Gallery' link,
but I couldn't find any U-21 photos there.)

and Stephanie Logterman

3 Jul 2007 - Coach Bill Irwin has named the roster that will travel to
Finland for the Nordic Cup tournament, which is now a U-23 competition.
Both Kelsey Carpenter and
Stephanie Logterman are on the
roster, and will head to Finland with the team on 12 July, for the tournament
which takes place from 18 July to 24 July.
5 Jun 2007 - The U-21 team is running a trailing camp from 6 Jun to 13
Jun, in preparation for the Nordic Cup tournament from 12 July to 25 July, in
Finland. Both Stephanie Logterman
and Kelsey Carpenter are part of this
camp. Coach Bill Irwin says that this group is close to the roster that
will travel to Finland, but includes a few players still trying to earn a spot,
while missing a few also in the running. I'd guess is that Logterman has a
spot sewn up while Carpenter is trying to earn one, based on how often the two
have been part of these camps in the past.
Meanwhile, the U-21 team won their first two games in Germany, 4-1 over FC
Gutersloh, and 5-2 over Essen-Schönebeck.
No word on results of the third game.
14 May 2007 - The U-21 team, this time including
Stephanie Logterman, will head to
Germany for three matches against German women's club teams, namely Gutersloh on
22 May, SG Essen-Schönebeck on 24 May, and
07 Bad Neuenahr on 26 May. After this trip, next up for the U-21 squad
will be a camp in Portland, OR during 6-13 June.
28 Apr 2007 - The USA U-21 team has to settle for second place, after
falling to the Canadian Olympic Development Team on penalty kicks, after a 0-0
draw. The US had more chances during regular play, but continued to miss
open shots. Stephanie Logterman
played the entire game, while Kelsey
Carpenter started and played 70 minutes.
24 Apr 2007 - Kelsey Carpenter
picked up another goal for the U-21 team, this time against the full Trinidad &
Tobago team, en route to a 2-0 win for the USA. Angie Woznuk had the other
goal for the US, and also set up Kelsey for her score. The USA team
started the game poorly, with a lack of intensity and poor finishing.
Carpenter and Stephanie Logterman
both did not start the game, but instead entered in the 34th minute. The
USA will now play either Argentina (full team) or the Canada Olympic Development
Team in the championship on 28 Apr. USA coach Bill Irwin promises that the
group he puts out for the final game will work their tails off.
22 Apr 2007 - Kelsey Carpenter
scored a goal in the second half, to contribute to a solid 2-0 win over the
Chinese U-21 team. The USA team controlled the game, helped in part by
strong play by the defense, which included
Stephanie Logterman, but the
offense missed some good first half chances, however, finally putting the game
away in the second half. The USA U-21 team will next play Trinidad &
Tobago, and a win there would put them in the championship game.
USA's Kelsey Carpenter scored the first goal for USA past China goalie Chi Xiao Hui. USA won 2-0.
