Women's World Cup: U.S. and North Korea are scoreless at halftime

Cup_640
The U.S. got off to a fast start, then had to hold off a surging North Korea team at the end of the half. The result is a scoreless tie at halftime in the opening Women's World Cup game for both teams.

Three players account for all seven U.S. shots. Carli Lloyd leads the way with three shots, followed by Lauren Cheney and Amy Rodriguez with two each. But North Korea goalkeeper Hong Myong-Hui has been up to the task thus far with five saves.

Meanwhile North Korea has kept up with the U.S. with seven shots, including two by Yun Hyon-Hi. U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo has four saves.
