FCB Frauen Advance to Second Round of DFB-Pokal

Behind seven unanswered goals, the Frauenmannschaft punched their ticket to the second round of the German Cup with ease over 2. Liga side TSV Crailsheim.

The Bayern women were able to travel by bus to the city of Crailsheim, Baden-Württemberg, which is tucked just inside the state's border with Bavaria to play their first round match of the Womens' DFB-Pokal.

Erika Tymrak, Clara Schöne and Sarah Romert all made their first appearances in the starting squad in Sunday's contest as most of the team's players who represented their countries over the last week or so were given the day off against the weaker opponent.

Schöne made an immediate impact, scoring Bayern's first goal just 11 minutes into the match.

From then on, Bayern would net six goals, all from Americans, beginning with Erika Tymrak's goal two minutes after Schöne scored the game's first.

Amber Brooks followed suit three minutes later before Tymrak scored again at the half-hour mark.

After taking the four-goal lead into the locker room, Bayern made two changes which saw Rebecca Huyleur replace Katharina Baunach and Jenny Gaugigl replace goalscorer Amber Brooks.

Sarah Hagen then proceeded to score an old-fashioned hattrick in the second half with goals in the 55th, 61st and 84th minutes to complete the afternoon's goal rampage and make the Bayern Mädels winners by seven goals to nil.

Their second-round Pokal fixture will take place in early November.

The team returns to Bundesliga play next on Thursday away to SGS Essen, who knocked off favorites Turbine Potsdam in their Cup match with three goals in the final fifteen minutes to overcome a two-nil deficit. FCB then return home to play newly-promoted Cloppenburg at the weekend.
