WFC Zvezda had been knocked off the topspot by Pavia Lokrians on Wednesday but the Russians were back to business after their rest day, sweeping aside Tokyo Lequios with seven goals.

Grechikhina scored after a matter of seconds, but before Zvezda could build momentum, Saki struck right back. As the period progressed, England’s Molly Clark retook the lead and Ivanshika extended it before the whistle.

From then on, the Japanese were unable to control Zvezda’s pressure and Cherniakova put away three sublime goals to push the match out of reach of the Tokyo side.

Yoko managed a second for Ko Yoshida’s ladies, but a brilliant piece of play was polished off by Gorshkova to take the final score to 2-7, and Zvezda overtake Lokrians to go top once more.

Both sides were on three points going into this fixture and, although it always promised to be a tight match-up, the Poles snatched two points in the end to move above their US rivals in the group.

Brazilian striker Lorena scored her sixth goal of the campaign, taking her to the top of the scoring chart, grabbing an early lead for Grembach. Zak added another and NorCal looked in danger of letting the game slip.

However, a rocket from Hall pulled a goal back before the first whistle and a second strike in the second period, this time a brilliant freekick from distance, levelled the score.

In the final third, a goal went in at each end, as Quigley and Gozdek added their names to the scoresheet and, tied at 3-3, the match went to extra time.

It was then that keeper Anna Beatriz bagged a vital two points with a long-range effort for Lady Grembach, who take their points total tally to five.
