Lynn Williams cannot be stopped.

The 29-year-old forward added another goal Sunday against the Chicago Red Stars, bringing her total for the regular season to four and tying for the league lead. With Williams leading the way, Gotham FC have won four of their first six regular-season matches, already equaling their win total from 2022.

The club also is tied for second in the league in points with 12.

For Williams, Sunday’s tally marked her 103rd goal contribution (goals and assists) across all NWSL competitions. According to OptaJack, that gives her the most in league history, as she surpasses Sam Kerr, who had 102 goal contributions in her seven NWSL seasons.

It was also her 61st regular-season career goal, giving her sole possession of the second-most goals in NWSL history. Kerr holds the record with 77 regular-season goals.

“This is a massive win. It shows the style and the winning mentality that this team has,” head coach Juan Carlos Amorós said. “Credit to all of the players, whether they played today or not, and to the staff. This is a big win for Gotham.”
