Eighth-placed West Ham ended their three-game WSL losing streak via a 90th-minute Katharina Baunach free-kick to win 3-2 against Manchester United, having earlier gone down to ten players when Leanne Kiernan was shown a second yellow for an off-the-ball incident. Seven minutes earlier.
Katharina Baunach scored a stunning 90th-minute free-kick as West Ham United mounted a remarkable late comeback against Manchester United.
The German international, Baunach produced a moment of magic which delivered the Hammers’ first set of three points in the league in four matches, sparking jubilant scenes at Rush Green Stadium.
After twice into behind only to draw level moments later, Baunach stepped up and curled a brilliant finish from inside the ‘D’, over the wall and into the bottom corner as the game ticked into injury time.
Laura Vetterlein and another Baunach free-kick at opposite ends of the match had earlier cancelled out opportunistic strikes by Kirsty Hanson and Lauren James, before the German left-back’s glorious winner capped a memorable victory.
