Carli Lloyd makes history in USWNT win over Jamaica


The United States women’s national team sailed to a 4-0 victory over Jamaica on Sunday night, securing their second win of the 2021 Summer Series.

The action got underway early in Houston, with the first tally coming in the game’s opening minute. Carli Lloyd’s go-ahead finish 23 seconds into the match marked the second-fastest goal in USWNT history.

Rose Lavelle’s floating ball to the far post set Lloyd up to become the oldest player to score for the national team. At 38 years and 332 days old, Lloyd passed Kristine Lilly for the milestone.

Less than six minutes later, Christen Press was brought down inside the box, earning her team a penalty kick. Lindsay Horan converted from the line with a clinical finish to double the USWNT’s lead.

The U.S. struck again in the 22nd minute with Midge Purce knocking in a well-placed cross from Press. Purce’s perfectly timed run allowed her to sneak behind Jamaica’s back line and beat the goalkeeper near post.

The next goal came in stoppage time when Alex Morgan headed in a lofted cross from Sam Mewis in the 92nd minute to put the USWNT up 4-0.

Sunday night’s game featured plenty of rotation and substitutions, with players making their final case for the soon-to-be-announced Olympic roster.

The USWNT will head to Austin to face Nigeria on Wednesday in the team’s final Summer Series match.
