Philadelphia Fever 0-1 FC Indiana
A 15th minute winner from Manouchka Pierre-Louis saw FC Indiana snatch its first win of the season at Philadelphia Fever on Friday night.
PHILADELPHIA, PA, June 29, 2012 - A 15th minute winner from Manouchka Pierre-Louis saw FC Indiana snatch its first win of the season at Philadelphia Fever on Friday night.
A tense, tight contest was decided when Pierre-Louis latched on a clever pass from Jordan Clark. She took a touch to steady herself then fired near post from 12 yards out.
It was a goal out of nothing. Before then both defences had been on top and there had been little to split the sides.
Philadelphia bossed the first quarter-hour but after the Pierre-Louis tally FC Indiana counters seemed destined to produce another goal, it never came.
In the 83rd minute, Philadelphia created their best clear chance at goal. After a corner, Allen squeezed a shot but could not prod it past Santilus from ten yards out.
