Mallory Pugh is leaving no doubt that she belongs right where she is. The Mountain Vista grad and former Colorado Gatorade girls soccer player of the year saw action in her first Women's World Cup game.

Not only did she see action, but she contributed in the United States' 13-0 win over Thailand.

Pugh scored in the 85th minute. Although the game was well in hand for the Americans, the goal capped a memorable day for the Colorado product.
