Lynn Williams makes statement with second consecutive brace


Lynn Williams is on a scoring hot streak.

With her two goals against the Thorns on Saturday night, Williams has now scored four goals in four days. The Courage striker’s impressive offensive performance comes on the heels of her inclusion as an alternate on the USWNT’s Olympics roster.

Williams first got on the score sheet against Portland in the 57th minute, knocking a corner into the back post to give the Courage a 1-0 lead.

Less than 10 minutes later, Williams found the back of the net again, nodding in a lofted Carson Pickett cross to double North Carolina’s lead.

With the 2-0 win, the Courage earned three points in the league standings and extended their win streak to three.
