Crystal Dunn scored twice in her second consecutive game as the USA completed a sweep of its two-game series against Russia with a 5-1 win on Sunday before 11,347 fans in Houston. A foul on
Dunn led to the opening U.S. goal, Carli Lloyd's penalty kick for her 97th career goal.
Rose Lavelle again made a case for inclusion in the U.S. midfield with her first goal in her fourth start. The fifth goal came on a own goal after a
Lavelle corner kick was redirected into the Russian goal in stoppage time in the first half.
Goalkeeper Jane Campbell, a first-round draft pick of the Houston Dash out of
Stanford, earned her first cap, coming on in the 74th minute to replace Ashlyn Harris.
