[AMERICANS ABROAD] Christen Press scored two goals for Tyreso to give her six goals in the last two games, while Tobin Heath also scored two goals for Paris St. Germain before they headed off to join the U.S. national team in Toronto for Sunday's friendly against Canada. Teenager Lindsey Horan also scored for PSG to finish her first season in France with 17 goals, tied for sixth place in the Division Feminine.

Tyreso won, 7-0, at Jitex to give it 17 goals in its last two games. Besides Press, who now leads the Damallsvenskan with nine goals in eight games, Dutchwoman Kirsten van de Ven had a hat trick and Brazilian star Marta scored twice.

With six wins and two ties in eight games, Tyreso leads LdB Malmo by three points but has played one more game.

PSG finished second in the Division Feminine with an 18-2-2 record. Lyon was perfect with a 22-0-0 record and 132-5 goal difference after its 3-0 win at Rodez.

Megan Rapinoe will remain with Lyon for the French Women's Cup instead of heading to Canada. Its disputed shootout win over Montpellier was ordered to be replayed on appeal. The referee incorrectly disallowed Japanese Rumi Utsugi’s goal for Montpellier -- her shot hit the post before it deflected off the arm of the Lyon and went into the goal, bringing back memories of Bruno Bellone's shootout goal for France in its win over Brazil at the 1986 World Cup -- and both clubs requested a replay.

Lyon and Montpellier will play June 5, three days before the final against St. Etienne in Clermont-Ferrand.
