Alex Morgan Extends NWSL Goalscoring Lead, But Mallory Pugh Is Climbing The Chart

The San Diego Wave twice came from a goal down thanks to an Alex Morgan brace, including a 90th-minute equalizer, to snatch a 2-2 draw with Kansas City on Saturday to stay atop the early NWSL standings with 13 points from seven games.

The Wave is undefeated at home (2-0), but they've been exceptionally good on the road for an expansion side (2-2-1). They just wouldn't quit on Sunday at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas City.

Kristen Hamilton had given the Current the lead in the 11th-minute, but Morgan brought the Wave level from the spot in the 37th.

Elyse Bennett thought she had earned all three points for the Current with another go-ahead goal, but Morgan was at the far post in the 90th minute to convert Sofia Jakobsson's cross.

Morgan leads the league with eight goals in seven games, but Chicago's Mallory Pugh is quickly making up ground.

The Red Stars climbed to third in the table with a 1-0 win over the OL Reign at SeatGeek Stadium on Saturday. Pugh scored the game-winner in the 47th-minute by sending a defender to the floor before curling in an unstoppable finish.  

Pugh missed the start of the regular season after suffering a concussion during the Challenge Cup, but the 24-year-old now has four goals in four games since returning.

Both Morgan and Pugh are targeting spots on the USWNT's upcoming roster for friendlies against Colombia and the Concacaf W Championship.
