Hamilton scored for the Courage and then set up the game-winning goal in the second half as the Courage downed Utah Royals FC 2-1.
After North Carolina fell behind on a tally from Christen Press, Hamilton provided the spectacular in the 35th minute. Sam Mewis played the ball forward and Hamilton controlled the ball with her chest before scoring on a sliding volley attempt. In the second half, Hamilton showed good strength and speed to beat a Royals FC defender before slotting the ball across the face of the goal for Jessica McDonald to score the eventual game-winner in the 55th minute.
Hamilton has now won Player of the Week three times this season, earning the honor in Week 8 and Week 12.
