WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Sydney Leroux scored in the 78th minute to help the U.S. women’s soccer team tie Canada 1-1 on Thursday night in an exhibition game.

Leroux kicked Canadian Rebecca Quinn’s crossing header into the corner past goalkeeper Erin McLeod.

Kadeisha Buchanan scored for Canada in the first half. Canada failed in its bid to beat the United States for the first time since 2001.

McLeod made two big saves, stopping Heather O’Reilly in the first half and Abby Wambach off a header in the second.
