Ertz nets two in USA's 3-1 victory vs. New Zealand

On a windy Friday evening at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, Julie Ertz netted two one-timer goals to lead the U.S. Women’s National Team to a 3-1 victory over New Zealand.

After winning a corner kick in the 16th minute, Kelley O’Hara sent a loose ball back into the mix, finding the head of Lindsey Horan.

In the 24th minute, Highlands Ranch native Mal Pugh sent a beautiful cross to a wide-open Megan Rapinoe on the back post.

Flying in from the top of the box, Ertz perfectly timed her right-footed volley, which ripped past New Zealand goaltender Erin Nayler.

Patiently baiting her defender, Morgan unleashed a left-footed strike that soared over Nayler’s head, skimming the crossbar before settling in the netting.
