[UEFA WOMEN'S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] U.S. international Yael Averbuch scored for Gothenburg FC on a volley, but the goal went for naught French club as Juvisy scored three unanswered goals in Sweden to win the second leg of their UEFA Women's Champions League series, 3-1, and advance to the semifinals, 4-1, on aggregate. Arsenal Ladies also went through, 4-1, on aggregate thanks to its 1-0 win over Torres Calcio in Italy.

Cam Levin, the former Stanford star, and Averbuch went all the way for Gothenburg FC, which led the second leg until the 77th minute when sub Camille Catala evened the scored on the evening for Juvisy and put it ahead, 2-1, on aggregate.

Catala later added one goal and an assist to put the series away and send Juvisy to the semifinals for the first time.

Arsenal was playing without former WUSA and WPS star Kelly Smith, who is injured, but Niamh Fahey ended the suspense with a goal in the 4th minute.

The other two quarterfinals -- Malmo-Lyon and Rossiyanka-Wolfsburg -- will be played Thursday.
