Great Britain beat United States for fourth time in series

Great Britain's women are one win away from a clean sweep of their five-match series against the United States after a 5-2 victory in San Diego on Saturday.

Britain now lead 4-0 after the latest success with the final match on Sunday.

Great Britain coach Danny Kerry, who was frustrated at the two goals conceded, said: "It was another strong team performance.

"We had a good first half and created lots of chances and put the US defence under pressure."
