In rainy conditions in San Diego the first half of the game was played at a considerable tempo as the US came out with a clear intention to ensure that Great Britain did not get everything their way during their visit.  It was end to end action with some strong physical play from both teams, however neither managed to capitalise on their chances.  Like yesterday, the game was goalless as the teams went in at half-time.
