It was always going to be an uphill struggle for Gareth Taylor’s side as they looked to overturn a three-goal first leg deficit against a side yet to taste defeat this season, but Janine Beckie’s close-range effort inside 20 minutes gave us hope.
Asisat Oshoala, thwarted several times by Lucy Bronze and Ellie Roebuck, equalised before the hour, but a Sam Mewis penalty hauled us ahead once again with 20 minutes of the game to play.
Although the American’s assured spot kick proved to be the last goalscoring act of the match, City proved that they can rub shoulders with the very best in Europe, and will take plenty of confidence from the tie into our pursuit of the WSL title.
