Rowland Wins Golden Glove as U.S. Qualifies for U-20 World Cup
By: UCLA Athletics
UCLA junior goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland earned Golden Glove honors as the U.S. Under-20 Women's National Team won the CONCACAF U-20 Championship and advanced to the U-20 World Cup.

The U.S. team, which also included UCLA freshman Lauren Kaskie, outscored their opponents, 29-0, in five tournament wins. Rowland had shutouts in four of those games and totaled five saves in the tournament. In the championship win over Mexico on Sunday, Mexico had a penalty kick in the 85th minute that hit the post and ricocheted across the goal. Rowland scrambled to get a hand on the ball, which prevented Mexico from scoring on the rebound.

"The fact that we didn’t’ allow a goal through five games is incredible," Rowland said. "It makes me so proud. Not only my back four, but the whole team defensively was outstanding. I couldn’t have asked for anything more."

Rowland, a 2013 All-American and the national leader in goals against average at 0.27, has allowed just one goal in competition since Oct. 27, posting 13 clean sheets in her last 14 games played with UCLA and the U.S. Under-20s.

The CONCACAF U-20 Championship is the fourth for the U.S. in tournament history. The U.S. is the defending U-20 Women's World Cup champion, having won in 2012. UCLA midfielders Sarah Killion and Sam Mewis were members of the gold medal winning team. The 2014 U-20 Women's World Cup will take place in Canada from Aug. 5-24.
