[AMERICANS ABROAD] Bayern Munich captured the German Women's Cup for the first time with a 2-0 win over UEFA Women's Champions League finalist 1. FFC Frankfurt thanks to goals by American Sarah Hagen and German Ivana Rudelic.

Hagen, who scored a hat trick in the semifinals, broke the deadlock with a header off a corner kick in the 63rd minute and Rudelic added the insurance goal in stoppage time.



Hagen (interviewed below) recently signed a new two-year contract with Bayern Munich. She joined the team this winter from Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she scored 93 goals, ninth all-time in NCAA Division I history.

American Nikki Cross also started for Bayern. Gina Lewandowski, who started for Frankfurt, will join Bayern next season.

The final drew 15,000 fans in Cologne.

-- Former UCLA star Danesha Adams scored her fifth goal of the season for Vittsjo's only goal in a 4-1 loss at first-place LdB Malmo in Sweden's Damallsvenskan.

Christen Press was held scoreless for the first time in five games as FC Gothenburg fell at Kristianstad, 4-1. Press' six goals put her tied for second with Vittsjo's Sofie Andersson, behind
German Anja Mittag of LdB Malmo, who has 11 goals.

-- Tiffany Weimer's late goal gave Fortuna Hjorring a 1-1 tie with Brondby in Denmark's Elitedivisionen championship playoffs. Fortuna and Brondby are tied for first place after two games.
