In an impressive display of skill and dominance, the U.S. Women’s Deaf National Team secured their third consecutive World Deaf Football Championship title with a resounding 3-0 win against Turkey on October 6 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Holly Hunter opened the scoring in the ninth minute, capitalizing on a scramble following a corner kick. The relentless pressure continued, leading to a powerful goal from Sophie Post in the 37th minute.
