The goal was Williams' third of the season and second in as many games.

"I thought it was a really good, professional performance," said head coach Paul Riley. "We talked about a couple of things since the game on Sunday, which was not like us at all. We didn't press well and had low energy. Tonight, we had high energy and we made it difficult for them."

Sam Mewis scored the Courage's second goal in the 41st minute to ensure the win.
