Best NWSL Challenge Cup Goals
In the opening match of the tournament starring the North Carolina Courage vs. the Portland Thorns, Lynn Williams took the cake.

She headed the ball just perfect — not too hard and not too soft.
Next up is the matchup between the Houston Dash and Utah Royals. The final score was 3-3, obviously full of amazing goals, I couldn’t pick just one!
The scoring fiasco opened up with Diana Matheson.

The little tap into the net was heartbreakingly perfect, not to mention the quality of the buildup.
Also in this match came Rachel Daly with her second goal of the match.
— Houston Dash (@HoustonDash) June 30, 2020
She came flying in and got some air.
In the matchup between the Utah Royals and Sky Blue, Amy Rodriguez came at us with a stunner.
— Utah Royals FC (@UtahRoyalsFC) July 5, 2020
She timed the run perfectly and just threaded the ball into the back of the net. Great stuff.
Shea Groom will knock your socks off with this next goal in the match between Houston and OL Reign.
— Houston Dash (@HoustonDash) July 6, 2020
Like her teammate Daly, Groom caught some wind. It’s impressive how powerful she is.
The match between the Portland Thorns and Washington Spirit threw another beautiful goal in our face with Lindsey Horan’s header.

She just threw herself at the ball. I wouldn’t be surprised if she scorched a hole in the back of the net. Just beautiful.
Finally, Nahomi Kawasumi in the match between Sky Blue FC and Houston Dash dropped the mic with her shot.

Perfect weight plus perfect timing equaled one stellar shot. I’m star struck.
There are sure to be more beautiful goals in this tournament. Keep watching.
