The injury list is still too long for my liking, but the goals keep coming for Yanks Abroad. Lynden Gooch scored his 10th goal of the League One season. We also had four braces from the ladies in Australia, including Morgan Andrews’ second straight. It’s also very good to see Andrija Novakovich on the scoresheet again. There are a few pleasant surprise goals as well.
Let’s get to the Yanks Abroad from the past week:
The Sunderland man opened the flood gates in a 3-0 win over Bristol Rovers by finishing off a beautiful team goal.
