Racing Louisville FC beats FC Bayern Munich

Racing Louisville FC beats FC Bayern Munich

In an ending that fell somewhere between improbable and you-can’t make-this-stuff-up, a backup goalkeeper making her professional debut in relief of a woozy starter connected on a penalty kick to give Racing Louisville FC a Women’s Cup championship victory over FC Bayern Munich.

Then, to top it off, the keeper, Katie Lund, blocked the tying attempt of Bayern Munich goalkeeper Laura Benkarth to secure the tournament title at Lynn Family Stadium. She did this in front of her parents and brother, who had traveled from Texas not expecting the rookie to play. And on her mother Susan’s birthday.

Believe it or don’t, but the announced witnesses numbered 7,813 – a record crowd for Racing Louisville – and the celebration included enough confetti and slackened jaws to show this was something unusual.
