Women in Europe: Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle secure first English trophy

Sam Mewis scored the first goal for Manchester City in its 3-1 overtime win over Everton in the English Women’s FA Cup final.

Rose Lavelle also started for Manchester City, which won on overtime goals by subs Georgia Stanway and Janine Beckie, who grew up in Colorado and represents Canada internationally.

Mewis is the second American to score for Manchester City in the Women's FA Cup final. Carli Lloyd scored in 2017 when City won, 4-1. She is also the second American to score this year in a pandemic-delayed FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium. Christian Pulisic scored for Chelsea in its 2-1 loss to Arsenal in the men's final in August.
