Ottawa lost their semi-final to Washington in penalties and then Washington lost the final to LA 6-1.  Ottawa won the bronze 2-1 in penalties over Charlotte.  The Charlotte goalkeeper they faced was the third goalkeeper for the University of Florida.  Small world again - first-year student Nora Gjøen plays ahead of her for the University of Florida.

She has re-signed for Adelaide United. The season starts next month. Also a rumour that one who played in Toppserien in Norway will make a comeback in Adelaide.

Kristy Moore retires after 32 years
« Reply #45 on: January 20, 2015, 09:37:28 AM »
Kristy Moore has called time on a socccer career which has spanned three decades, seen her play for two countries and become a football legend in a third; finally captaining her home town W-League team in South Australia.

The now former Lady Reds skipper also ended her 24-season career on a high claiming the prestigious club awards player’s player of the year and the club’s player prize on Monday.

Now Kristy has retired is a good time to think of some of her great deeds.  For me the highlight of her career was one of the best goals you will ever see, a goal that had everything, the occasion, a good string of passes and a glorious volley at the end that turned out to be a match winner.

It was the Norwegian Cup Final in 2011, between Stabæk and Røa.  Stabæk were finishing only their third season, while Røa had been the dominant team in Norway for several seasons.  Stabæk were outplayed for 90 minutes in front of a large crowd and on national TV.  In stoppage time, with Røa's trainer gesticulating at the ref to end the match, the score was 1-0 to Røa.  

Stabæk won a free kick, a long one taken by 16-year-old Caroline Graham Hansen.  Hansen dropped a perfect ball on to skipper Katrine Pedersen's head at the far post.  Suddenly it was 1-1 and Stabæk still had a chance.

Extra time came and pretty soon Røa scored again.  In the 115th minute it was still 2-1 when Stabæk won a throw-in on the left near the centre line.  Ingrid Bakke hesitated a long time before turning and throwing the ball back to Toril Akerhaugen.  A long pass came up the centre, headed onwards by veteran Ingrid Camilla Fosse Sæthre to the 18-yard line.  Trine Rønning, in a crowd of defenders, stuck a toe out to poke the ball across to Moore advancing on the 6-yard line.  Moore made it look so simple, a powerful volley to propel the ball past keeper Caroline Knutsen into the back of the net.

After Akerhaugen the ball was touched three times by three players on the way to the back of the net - a goal of a lifetime.  After that it was penalties and one of Røa's many international players had a piece of bad luck that allowed Stabæk's last penalty taker to score and take the Cup.  

I am lucky enough to have that match on DVD and it always brightens up the occasional winter evening when there's nothing else to do (which I must admit isn't often!).
