The Wave are in third place in Group B for the Challenge Cup with a 1-1-3 record. The team’s one win came against California rivals Angel City FC, with Morgan scoring two goals to help lift her team to the 4-2 victory on April 2.
She also notched a goal against OL Reign on April 14.
The team is fresh off a 3-2 loss to the Portland Thorns on Sunday. The Wave nearly managed to pull off a second-half comeback after trailing 3-0 at halftime.
Their final game of the Challenge Cup comes Saturday against OL Reign at 10 p.m. ET.
