Kerr Makes History with Australia

Kerr has scored in seven consecutive matches with the Matildas

CHICAGO – In Australia’s opening match of the 2018 Algarve Cup, Sam Kerr set a new national team record for most-consecutive games scoring a goal, while also helping lead the Matildas to a 4-3 victory over Norway.

During the heated match, Kerr notched the third goal for Australia, creating a 3-1 lead going into halftime, making it the seventh-straight match she has tallied in.

Kerr broke the record that was previously held by Matildas legend Sarah Walsh, scoring in six-consecutive matches.

Kerr has scored 12 goals in her last seven matches for her country, starting it off with a hat trick against Japan in the 2017 Tournament of Nations.

The Red Stars forward will look to extend the record when the Aussies play hosts Portugal this weekend.

Catch Kerr and the rest of the Chicago Red Stars this season at Toyota Park, starting with the home opener against the Portland Thorns, following the Chicago Fire and Portland Timbers in a double header event on March 31. Tickets are available here.
