Carli Lloyd Scores a Hat Trick as the USWNT Defeats Haiti 5-0

It wasn’t the greatest performance and it was probably a little less scoring than many expected but the USWNT still pulled out a 4-0 win over Haiti in Detroit, Michigan primarily thanks to a Carli Lloyd hat trick. This is Lloyd’s fourth hat trick as a USWNT player and second hat trick of the year. Her first being the FIFA Women’s World Cup Final.

Haiti came in to play with only about a week or so notice. Australia was supposed to play the USWNT in Detroit and Birmingham, Alabama but the players, both men and women, are on strike in hopes of being better compensated and have better conditions when they play for the Australian National Team. So needing a last minute replacement, U.S. Soccer was able to get Haiti on short notice.

It’s tough to learn anything from games like these because of the vast talent difference but Carli Lloyd was obviously super as she scored her hat trick. She didn’t score a similar goal to the midfield shot from the Women’s World Cup but I loved the height she got when she picked up the hat trick. Seemed like she was taking off like a rocket and wasn’t coming down.
