Wow, Franny Ordega with the takedown of Sinc in the box.

One of the few times I've ever seen Sinc become a human Y on the pitch. Absolutely correct call.

Sinc with the PK, and.... wow.

Can't say Sinc didn't give it her all. Just bad choice.

Sinc just dropped a huge F bomb when she landed wrong on her right foot (44th minute). Amazing that she never winds up going down with injuries. As you age, it's not like you get more flexible or better able to bounce back, you know?

Gotta say, I love these club names from Scandinavia. Kalmar, Brann, Klepp... it's like flipping through the IKEA catalogue.
