The U.S. women put together another stunning showing against South Korea, rolling to a dominant 6-0 win

The U.S. women's national team rolled to another dominant win on Sunday, topping South Korea 6-0with a brace from Samantha Mewis and a brilliant strike from Christen Press leading the way on a day full of highlights for the USA. 

Mewis got things started with a brace early in the first half. The 25-year-old, who plays for North Carolina Courage at the club level and was playing in front of her home fans, scoring just three minutes in and netting her second in the 20th minute as she smashed home a rebound. 

Press soon made it 3-0 with the strike of the night. After picking up a pass from Alex Morgan, Press' slight fake opened up just enough space for her to pick out a corner and give the USA a commanding lead. 

Julie Ertz kept her personal scoring streak going with a headed effort just before the half to make it 4-0. The goal was her fifth in six matches and tied her with Morgan for the team lead in 2017. 

Another Courage player extended the lead in the second half, with Lynn Williams pushing the ball into an empty net just after the hour mark, making it 5-0  before Allie Long rounded out the scoring late in the half. 

The U.S. women's side will be back in action in November with a home-and-home friendly set against Canada.
