South Mississippi celebrates Team USA victory

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
Whether at home or at the bar, Team USA fans in South Mississippi were gathered around the TV to cheer on the home team. Major sporting events always bring a crowd to local sports bars, especially when Team USA makes it to the finals in the World Cup.
The excitement ran high at Mugshots Restaurant and Bar in Biloxi, as the women's team came out of the gate hot. Team USA scored a goal as WLOX News crews were interviewing soccer fan Corey Gemelli. He said describe the excitement by simply saying "It's 4th of July. It's the USA. This is awesome."
USA dominated Japan in a 5-2 win.  Midfielder, Carli Lloyd, not only scored the quickest goal in a women's world cup final at three minutes in, she scored again five minutes into the match, then launched a shot from midfield. Lloyd recorded the first ever hat trick in Women's World Cup finals history.
President Barack Obama congratulated the tea on Twitter "Your country is so proud of all of you. Come visit the White House with the World Cup soon."
