Chicago Red Stars lose to Gotham FC in the final minute as Lynn Williams breaks NWSL goal-scoring record


Lynn Williams scored her 79th league goal, becoming the National Women’s Soccer League all-time scoring leader, as Gotham FC earned a last-minute 2-1 win against the Chicago Red Stars at Red Bull Arena on Sunday night.

In the 57th minute, Jenna Nighswonger crossed the ball to Esther González at the far post. The forward volleyed it back across the goal for Williams, who headed in her record-setting goal and gave Gotham the lead.

Williams surpassed Sam Kerr’s record across all competitions.

The Red Stars (5-4-1) equalized in the 74th minute when Penelope Hocking pounced on a loose ball off a free kick, scoring for the third game in a row.

Ella Stevens headed in a 90th-minute corner kick to help Gotham (4-2-3) extend their unbeaten streak to five games.

Rose Lavelle, who missed the first four matches with a leg injury, started for the first time since signing with Gotham in the offseason and played 61 minutes.
