Trinidad & Tobago was no match for the U.S. Women’s National Team and ¬†especially Christen Press.

Scoring a second-half hat trick, Press helped the U.S. stay undefeated on its Victory Tour on Thursday evening. The USWNT secured a 6-0 win against T&T at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, improving its unbeaten streak to 23 games.

Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan and Lindsey Horan scored the three other goals for the U.S. against T&T, while Press came into the game for Alex Morgan in the 60th minute. Horan arguably had the best outing for the USWNT, providing three assists before scoring the final goal of the game in second-half stoppage time.

Abby Wambach, who announced her retirement from the game at the conclusion of the Victory Tour, entered the match in the 76th minute to a thunderous roar.

The USWNT was scheduled to play T&T twice, with the first contest being played last Sunday in Hawaii, but that match was canceled due to poor field conditions.

The USWNT will kick off its penultimate Victory Tour match against China in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday (7 p.m., ESPN2). The Americans will then host China at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, next Wednesday (8 p.m., FOX Sports 1).
