Highlights as USWNT’s Alex Morgan scores. Again.

The numbers for U.S. women’s national team scoring star Alex Morgan continue to be stunning.

Current totals: 50 game, 32 goals. At that pace, she’ll pass current all-time leader Mia Hamm by some time next month.

Or something like that.

Her milepost 50th appearance came Sunday as the U.S. gold medal victory tour continues. This  one was at the Home Depot Center in California, where Morgan’s 55th minute equalizer put the United States on the road to a 2-1 win over Australia.

Shannon Boxx provided the game-winner on a 63rd-minute penalty kick after Morgan was chopped down inside the penalty area.

Highlights from Sunday’s victory in sunny Carson, California:

    Actually, it was Alex Morgan, not HAO, who was fouled for the PK.

    Yep. (Fixed). Heather O’Reilly helped set up the first goal, not the second. Nice catch. (Sometimes, readers are better editors than editors. Not that I have editors … but you get my meaning.)
