Weekend Rewind: Lloyd Leads Manchester City in Champions League Action

Last week saw U.S. Women’s National Team players Carli Lloyd (Manchester City) and Alex Morgan (Olympique Lyonnais) triumph in UEFA Champions League quarterfinal play while and Crystal Dunn (Chelsea FC) picked up a big win in FA Cup action.

Lloyd Heads Home City’s Lone Goal in UWCL Win
Lloyd scored City’s lone goal with a powerful header off a terrific cross from Jane Ross in a 1-0 win in the first leg of the quarterfinal round of Champions League vs. Fortuna Hjorring. The goal was Lloyd’s first for City and not a bad way to kick off her UWCL debut.

City also faced Bristol City on Sunday in FA Cup quarterfinal play, mounting a 2-1 comeback win while getting the winning goal in the 88th minute after Bristol City tied the match shortly before halftime. On Monday, the FA Cup held its semifinal draw and Manchester City will play Liverpool, hosting the Reds at the Academy Stadium on Monday, April 17.

For now, City’s attention turns to Champions League action carrying the 1-0 aggregate advantage into with its second leg home match against Fortuna on Thursday, March 30.

Morgan Starts up Top for Lyon in Champions League
Morgan and Lyon were also in action last Thursday as they took on Wolfsburg in its Champions League quarterfinal match in Germany. Goals from France international Camille Abily and Germany captain Dszenifer Maroszan gave Lyon the 2-0 away victory, putting the team in an excellent position ahead of the second leg on Wednesday, March 29 in Lyon. Morgan started up top for OL, next to France’s Eugenie LeSommer, playing all 90 minutes. OL also resumed league play, facing Rodez on Sunday in D1 Feminine action, where it claimed a commanding 8-0 win. Morgan did not see any action in that game and instead got a rest as OL rolled over Rodez for the second time this season.

Dunn and Chelsea took on Sunderland on Sunday in the FA Cup quarterfinal match, earning an emphatic 5-1 win after Sunderland had gone up 1-0 early in the game. Dunn played all 90 minutes and tallied an assist in Chelsea’s win. Up next is Birmingham City LFC in the semifinal round of the FA Cup. The date and venue for the semifinal will be announced later.

Hall of Fame - Brandi Chastain: A Celebration Like No Other

Achieving fame and a legendary status in sports usually comes because of a combination of two things: 1) you’re one of the best at your craft and, 2) you are the author of a moment (or moments) so mythical, that it remains etched in the minds of generations to come. Think Jason Lezak’s come-from-behind relay swim against France in the 2008 Olympics, or Keri Strugg landing her vault Read more
