“Carson did very well in training for us last week and with Emily Fox managing the minutes, we thought Carson would be a good replacement, and I’m glad she was able to do well for 90 minutes.” American coach Vlatko Andonovsky said.
The left-back made his 100th appearance in the NWSL earlier this month and was placed in the division’s Best XI for June.
The United States extended its unbeaten streak to 69 games on home soil. Lightning was reported near the Rio Tinto stadium in the 75th minute, forcing the game to be postponed for more than 30 minutes.
It was the second of two matches against Colombia as both teams prepare for World Cup and Olympic qualifying in July. The US will try for a third consecutive World Cup title in Australia and New Zealand next summer.
