CARY, N.C. -

Megan Rapinoe scored just three minutes into the game, and the United States got three goals in the second half to beat Switzerland 4-1 Wednesday night.

Carli Lloyd made a penalty kick early in the second half, Christen Press scored in the 77th minute and Abby Wambach got her 168th career score in the 87th.

Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic scored on a penalty kick in the 70th minute for Switzerland. It came on the Swiss' only shot on goal and ended Hope Solo's bid to set a new shutout record for the US women. Solo remained tied with Briana Scurry for the team mark with 71 shutouts.

The U.S. had 15 shots in its first game since a 2-2 tie with France on June 19.
