The U.S. Women's National Team completely dominated from start to finish in front of a near-sellout crowd at Sahlen's Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park on Sunday evening to shutout Korea Republic 6-0 in the second game of a two-match series.

Five different players scored for the U.S. with midfielder Samantha Mewis tallying her first career brace by the 20th minute in the home stadium for her club team, the North Carolina Courage. Shortly after, Christen Press continued the party and made it 3-0. Julie Ertz also continued her fantastic goal-scoring form and added one in stoppage time to make it 4-0 at the half.

It was much of the same in the second 45 minutes and the five U.S. substitutions at the half quickly got to work with Megan Rapinoe and Lynn Williams combining for a fifth goal, and Lindsey Horan and Allie Long for a sixth.

Next, the U.S. WNT will conclude its 2017 schedule with a pair of friendlies against Canada on Nov. 9 (7 p.m. PT; ESPN2, UDN) at BC Place in Vancouver and Nov. 12 (6 p.m. PT, FS1) at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, Calif.
