NJ/NY Gotham FC made it four wins in a row at the expense of Racing Louisville FC, taking their NWSL contest 2-0 on Saturday in Louisville, Ky.

Gotham’s hot streak has propelled them up to fourth in the current standings with 24 points (7-2-3), while Louisville (3-3-6, 15 points) saw its own two-game winning streak come to an end.

Midfielder Crystal Dunn found fellow midfielder Yazmeen Ryan, who fired a right-footed shot from outside the box into the bottom left corner for a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute. It was Ryan’s first goal of the season.

That score held until Gotham was able to add to it in the 53rd minute. Forward Ella Stevens connected from the left side of the box into the bottom right corner after defender Mandy Freeman assisted with the cross. The goal was Stevens’ fifth of the season.

Gotham nearly pocketed another goal in the 45th minute on multiple attempts from close range but couldn’t connect. Louisville’s best chance at an equalizer came two minutes into the second half when Emma Sears’ shot from the box was saved.
