13th Goal Not Lucky for Alex Morgan

Because a teammate was offsides, Alex Morgan's goal during play against Brazil Tuesday did not count.

What would have been Alex Morgan’s 13th goal of the year just wasn’t lucky.

Playing in Japan with the U.S. women’s national team against Brazil on Tuesday, Morgan had a free kick that went in, but was deemed ineligible because a teammate was offsides, ESPN reports.

The American team went on to win the game, part of the Kirin Challenge Cup, 3-0, thanks to goals from two other Southern Californians: Shannon Boxx from Redondo Beach and Amy Rodriguez of Lake Forest.

Morgan, a Diamond Bar High School graduate, has scored in six of the last U.S. games.
