Heather O'Reilly scored less than a minute into the match to lead the Unites States to a 4-0 win over New Zealand and a spot in the quarterfinals of the women's Olympic soccer tournament.

O'Reilly put the defending champions on the board 40 seconds into the match, firing a long-range right-footer over New Zealand goalkeeper Jenny Bindon. The U.S. then got goals from Amy Rodriguez in the 43rd minute, Lindsay Tarpley in the 57th minute and Angela Hucles in the 60th minute.

Tuesday's victory gave the U.S. first place in Group G with six points, edging Norway on goal difference and avoiding a match with title contender Brazil.
