Four Score

"Forward Sydney Leroux #2 of USA celebrates after scoring a goal during the first half of an International Friendly against Mexico at RFK Stadium on September 3, 2013 in Washington, DC."

There is one question I am always asked: What is your favorite sport is to document?

While I don't exactly have a favorite, there are a few that I am bias toward only because I played them my entire life - those being soccer and lacrosse.

Having the opportunity to cover the USA women's national team against Mexico was a bit nostalgic and exciting besides the love for the sport.

Last time I covered USA, they played Mexico in the snow in Utah. Getting to cover the same match-up in my new home was a great experience, although, the weather made for some pretty interesting images.

Aside from the snow, there is nothing quite like documenting a player have a standout game. I remember those games playing sports myself - you're in the zone and every play, ball and shot goes your way.

Sydney Leroux had one of the games. Scoring four times, she helped the USA defeat Mexico, 7-0.
