The task was not easy, but the Lyonnaises fulfilled their mission. Opposed to Montpellier, this Friday evening, in Grammont, at the opening of the 3rd day of the Championship, the players of Sonia Bompastor signed a third success in a row in D1.
The Rhodaniennes opened the scoring during the first period in torrential rain following a good free kick from Selma Bacha who found Lindsey Horan’s header (33rd). Coming in place of Melvine Malard in the 58th minute, Eugénie Le Sommer doubled the lead twelve minutes later, taking advantage of a strike from Delphine Cascarino repelled by Schmitz, the MHSC goalkeeper (71st).
Faustine Robert reduced the mark for Montpellier (74th) but the hope was short-lived. On a second decisive pass from Bacha, Danielle Van de Donk restored a two-goal lead to Lyonnaises (84th).
Earlier, Paris FC beat Le Havre at Charléty. Sandrine Soubeyrand’s players won thanks to a goal from Louise Fleury (45th + 2). PSG, engaged this week in the Champions League, will receive Fleury on Sunday (kick-off at 12:45 p.m.).
