[AMERICANS ABROAD] Megan Rapinoe made her season debut for French champion Lyon in its 3-0 win in its much-anticipated Feminine Division 1 clash with Paris St. Germain in Paris at the Stade Charlty.

Lyon got goals from Louisa Necib, Lotta Schelin and Laetitia Tonazzi to improve its record to four wins in four games by a margin of 20-1.

Rapinoe came on for Camille Abily in the second half, while U.S. U-20 star Lindsey Horan went the distance for PSG. Tobin Heath has yet to play for the Paris club since returning from the NWSL, where she helped Portland win the inaugural title.

ENGLAND. Whitney Engen and Amanda da Costa started for Liverpool Ladies in their 2-0 win over Bristol Academy that clinched the Women’s Super League in England. Liverpool, which had finished last in the eight-team league in 2011 and 2012, ended Arsenal Ladies' 10-year run as English champions with the title.

SWEDEN. Christen Press scored her league-leading 21st goal for Tyreso in its 5-0 win over Mallbacken in a Swedish Damallsvenskan clash that featured seven Americans in action. Also starting for Tyreso were Ashlyn Harris, Ali Krieger and Meghan Klingenberg, while Katie Fraine and Blakely Mattern started and Jessica Shufelt came off the bench for Mallbacken.

GERMANY.  Sarah Hagen, Erika Tymrak and Amber Brooks combined for six goals as Bayern Munich beat second division Crailsheim, 7-0, in the German Cup. Hagen had a second-half hat trick to match the two goals from Tymrak and one from Brooks in the first half.
