ST. ANDREWS, Scotland, May 30 (UPI) -- Amanda Blumenherst and Stacy Lewis both won two matches Friday and the United States took a two-point lead after the first day of the Curtis Cup.

Blumenherst and Lewis finished the day with a 3 & 1 victory over Florentyna Parker and Elizabeth Bennett in the final fourball match, played over the historic Old Course at St. Andrews.

In the foursomes matches, Blumenherst teamed with Tiffany Joh for a 1-up win over Breanne Loucks and Parker. Lewis and Alison Walshe paired up for a 3 & 1 victory over Bennett and Jodi Ewart.

The event will close Saturday with a series of singles matches.
