Goals from forwards Lynn Williams and Trinity Rodman lifted the U.S. Women’s National Team to a 3-0 victory in a friendly against South Africa on Thursday at TQL Stadium in what was the final international match for legendary midfielder Julie Ertz. While Ertz threatened throughout the night on set pieces, Williams bagged a brace off two corner kicks and Rodman added one in transition to give the USA a win in its first match since the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
