The Matildas striker has been in the league since it's inception in 2013, first with Western New York Flash and now with New Jersey-based Sky Blue. 

Sky Blue were down 2-0 in the 78th minute when the 23-year-old grabbed her first of the match with a classy diving header. 

Kerr then went on to equal the record in the 81st minute with a smart first-time finish into the bottom corner.
