Heath and Horan fall in French Women's Cup final
[AMERICANS ABROAD] Americans Tobin Heath and Lindsey Horan both started for Paris
St. Germain in its 2-0 loss to Lyon Saturday in the final of the French Women's Cup before 6,588 fans at the MMArena in Le Mans.
Swiss star Laura
Dickenmann, who played at Ohio State, and Corinne Franco scored for Lyon.
The match was the last game for Lyon coach Patrice Lair, whose differences with Megan Rapinoe contributed to her premature departure from Lyon, who edged PSG by seven
points (4-3-2 point system) for French league title. Lyon has now won three straight league-cup doubles and eight straight league titles.
Heath will return to NWSL champion Portland,
while Horan will join the U.S. U-20s as they prepare for their world title defense in Canada.
STENGEL TO BAYERN. Katie Stengel, Wake Forest’s all-time leading scorer and a
three-time All-American, has signed with Bayern Munich.
Stengel, who scored 50 goals and added 25 assists in 75 games at Wake Forest, will begin play in the fall in the Frauen-Bundesliga
and replace another American Sarah Hagen, who returned home to play in the NWSL.
"I am excited to begin my professional career at such a famous club like Bayern,” Stengel said in a
press release from the club. “I want to learn from the top players in Germany and cannot wait to meet the new team in Munich and tackle this challenge."
Stengel's college career
ended prematurely when he was suffered a blood clot. She did not enter the NWSL college draft and along with former Wake Forest teammate Aubrey Bledsoe signed
to play with the LA Blues of the W-League.
