From the all-American local sports grounds of the NCAA to the hallowed turf of Bayern Munich, Kristin Shaffer brings you an in-depth review of the very best Aussie moments abroad this week.
THREE BEST GOALS
3. DEMI KOULIZAKIS’ SENIOR NIGHT GOAL
A night when seniors are honored for their multiple year commitment at Texas Tech it made sense for a senior to get on the scoresheet. Texas Tech was on the attack from a turnover from their opponent.
The ball was passed right to Demi Koulizakis inside the box, who one touched the ball into the left side netting. The goal would be the last in the game with Texas Tech winning 3-0 and gave Koulizakis her second goal on the season.
2. SAM KERR ENDS HER TWO GAME SCORING DROUGHT
It seems like there is an expectation on Kerr to find the back of the net in every game she plays in. Before tonight, Kerr has been without a goal since August 14th (two matches ago). It really was not that long ago but the Red Stars were feeling the impact of their star forward not netting goals, riding a three game losing streak.
Kerr ensured they would break up the streak with a goal in just the 7th minute of play. She received a through ball well outside of the box and then turned on her infamous speed leaving the defenders well behind.
Kerr got into the box and teed the ball up on her right foot sliding the ball into the lower left corner putting her Chicago Red Stars up 1-0.
1. SAM KERR’S BRACE GOAL
Kerr netted two goals in the game and she made sure to make them both impressive. Some very good team passing around the box allowed Kerr to get some space at the top of the box.
She took two touches setting up her right foot to send a low pacy ball into the net giving the Red Stars a 2-0 lead into halftime.
