Sky Blue FC forward Katie Johnson scored as Mexico came from behind to beat Costa Rica 3-1 and win the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games on Monday night in Barranquilla, Colombia.

Trailing 1-0 in the final after conceding a penalty kick in the 14th minute, Mexico scored in the 59th, 60th and 62nd minutes to complete the comeback and seal the win. Johnson’s goal was the final score in Mexico’s run of three goals in four minutes.

Houston Dash goalkeeper Bianca Henninger played the second half of the win vs. Costa Rica after subbing in when Cecilia Santiago left the match due to injury.

Johnson finished the tournament with three goals, tied for a team-high. Mexico outscored opponents in the tournament 18-3 on their way to the win.
