Morgan’s brace leads shaky USWNT past Haiti

Alex Morgan scored a first-half brace and Margaret Purce added a late goal as the United States women’s national team beat Haiti 3-0 in group stage action at the CONCACAF W Championship.

Monday’s win at Estadio Universitario in Monterrey, Mexico, saw the USWNT overcome defensive struggles against the upstart Haitians and secure the first match at the inaugural tournament among the top sides of North and Central America and the Caribbean.

Roselord Borgella could have given Haiti a goal from the penalty spot after Morgan’s two early goals, but she missed and then was later given a yellow card for a foul before the half.

The tournament runs through July 18, with the top four teams in the eight-team tournament qualifying automatically for the 2023 Women’s World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand. The winner of the tournament will directly qualify for the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
