USWNT Wins 5-0 To Close New Zealand Trip
Written by Oluwaseun Oyediji
The United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) closed out January with another win.
Rose Lavelle scored a brace, and Ashley Hatch, Mallory Swanson, and Taylor Kornieck scored a goal apiece in a 5-0 win over New Zealand last weekend.
In the second of their two friendlies against the 2023 World Cup co-hosts, the United States (U.S.) tweaked the lineup.
As captain, Lavelle controlled the match while sitting behind Ashley Sanchez, allowing the Washington Spirit midfielder to roam near the front line.
Hatch started in place of Alex Morgan, who was a late scratch with lower leg tightness. Lindsey Horan was also unavailable after returning to Lyon.

Trinity Rodman got the start on the frontline, with Crystal Dunn and Naomi Girma the only holdovers on defense from the first match.
Rodman notched her third assist in two games as the team’s attacking depth sparkled.
Lynn Williams also recorded an assist off the bench, and Kornieck made a difference on set pieces, scoring late off a header.
These games were about getting the team used to long travel as they tune up for the SheBelieves Cup.

Expect the return of Sophia Smith (and eventually Catarina Macario) to continue to push the team’s attack to another level.
