It's safe to say Carli Lloyd's World Cup form has carried over into NWSL. 

Lloyd scored for a seventh straight game–four in the Women's World Cup, three in club play–tallying another long-range golazo in the Houston Dash's 3-2 win over FC Kansas City on Wednesday night. The goal came in the 85th minute and delivered a win for the Dash, who continue their playoff push. Houston edged in front of FCKC by two points for the league's fourth playoff place with six games remaining.

While Lloyd's latest effort wasn't as long-range as her midfield strike against Japan that capped her World Cup final hat trick, it certainly had an element of flash to it, with the reigning World Cup Golden Ball winner rifling about a 30-yard strike into the upper left-hand corner to secure the three points.
