Lyon win 4-0 in first test of the season
Olympique Lyonnais defeated Montpellier HSC 4-0 this afternoon in their first real test of the season. Ada Hegerberg gave her team a flying start with a goal already in the 4th minute. The rest of the first half proved difficult, however, and at the start of the second half Montpellier were hoping to equalize. Instead Elise Bussaglia found the back of the net within seconds with an excellent free kick from a distance. Camille Abily and Eugénie Le Sommer later added to the score, resulting in a 4-0 win for les lyonnaises.
Goals: Hegerberg (4’), Bussaglia (47’), Abily (70’), Le Sommer (89’).
Lineup: Bouhaddi - Dickenmann (Perisset 74’), Kumagai, Renard, Majri - Henry, Bussaglia, Abily, Necib (Thomis 56’) - Schelin (Le Sommer 46’), Hegerberg.

Cindy Perrault signs her first contract
Goalkeeper Cindy Perrault earlier today signed her first federal contract, which will keep her at Lyon until June 30, 2015. Perrault commented on the signing, saying it is an honor to sign for a big club like OL who have some of the best players in the world on their squad. She added “It is a dream for me. Among my favorite players, there is Sarah Bouhaddi who plays at the same position as me. I could not wait to sign the contract. I already know the coach, Gerard Prêcheur, whom I worked with last year at Clairefontaine. Now my goal is to continue to progress.”

First contract for Mylaine Tarrieu
Young forward Mylaine Tarrieu has today signed her first federal contract. Tarrieu has been with Lyon for the past four years, arriving from Martinique, and last season won both the U-19 league and cup with Lyon. Most recently, she represented France in the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada where France won bronze. Tarrieu was unfortunately injured during the tournament, however, and will be unable to train with the senior team for the next three months.
