Christine Sinclair and Lynn Williams both scored their 60th career NWSL goals on Saturday to remain tied for second most goals in NWSL history. Only Sam Kerr — who played in the NWSL from 2013-19 — has more (77).
Sinclair’s 60th goal came just two minutes into the Portland Thorns’ 2-0 win over Racing Louisville. Sinclair, who has played with the Thorns since the NWSL launched in 2013, reached the 60-goal mark in her 160th career match.

More than 2,400 miles away — and following a two-hour lightning delay — Williams equaled Sinclair’s mark by scoring in the 80th minute of Gotham’s 1-0 win over the North Carolina Courage. Williams, who was drafted into the NWSL in 2015 and was traded to Gotham ahead of the 2023 NWSL season, scored off a pass from Yazmeen Ryan.
