ROLL ON YOU BEARS!

To justify the usage of Alex Morgan's picture above, there are some videos of Alex Morgan's goals in the recent 3 stop US Victory Tour after the jump. In case you didn't realize this (from ESPN.com article)

Morgan's performance against the Australians gives her 63 points this year. It's the most for a national player in a calendar year since 2004, when Wambach accounted for 75 points.

From 9/1/12, US WNT vs. Costa Rica


From 9/16/12, US WNT vs. Australia (Alex Morgan's 50th appearance for USWNT)

Alex added two more goals on the last leg of the 2012 US Victory Tour (also coach Pia Sundhage's last game as the head of USWNT) on 9/19/12, also against Australia.

Goal #1:

Goal #2:

Way to go Alex! These video don't include all the various assists that Alex has also racked up (on her way to those 63 points for the calendar year including 25 goals).

GO BEARS!
