Julie Ertz Scores Twice For US Women's Soccer Team In Victory Over New Zealand

Julie Ertz Scores Twice For US Women's Soccer Team In Victory Over New Zealand”

Julie Ertz celebrates her second goal in the first half against New Zealand at DICK'S Sporting Goods Park on September 15, 2017 in Commerce City, Colo.

Julie Ertz made her presence felt early during the US women's national team's friendly against New Zealand on Friday night.

Ertz put the USA on top 1-0 in the 16th minute on a one-timer from in tight on New Zealand goalie Erin Naylor; she scored a ball sent directly to her feet from a lovely header by Lindsey Horan.

The first of two internationals was dominated by the world's top-ranked side but the 19th-ranked visitors had their moments and raised eyebrows when they pulled a goal back in the 74th minute to close to 2-1.

Ertz's second goal of the night came at 24'.

Hannah Wilkinson added a goal in the second half for New Zealand, which was overmatched throughout the match. The U.S. has outscored its opponents 10-4 in those contests and has given up just one goal in its last two matches. It was the 75th career strike for Morgan, tying her with Cindy Parlow for seventh all-time in program history.

The match was the 100th career cap for USA midfielder Kelley O'Hara. The defender, who was born in Idaho but previously played for the Mexico under-20 national team, was approved by FIFA for a change of national association earlier this week.

Battling altitude, a short buildup and coming to grip with a new-look lineup, New Zealand put up a credible showing against the world champions in Denver.
