Lavelle’s goal gave the U.S. a 1-0 lead in the 10th minute. Lindsey Horan scored in the 45th minute to make it a 2-0 lead just before halftime. Lavelle was replaced by Sam Mewis in the 68th minute.

Last month, Lavelle, 26, shook off the rust of a lengthy layoff and starred in the Washington Spirit’s 2-1 win against the Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL Challenge Cup.

In May, Lavelle left of the Women’s Soccer League and returned to the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) to play for OL Reign, which acquired her rights in a trade with the Washington Spirit last year.
