The Bayern Munich Women's team went on the road to SC Freiburg and came back with three points. Bayern dominated possession and the game from the start and won the match 2-1 to get their first win of the season.

Bayern had complete control of the game from the beginning with a handful of early chances for goals created in the first 15 minutes. The best early chance came from Freiburg's Melanie Leupolz with a shot from right outside the box that was easily saved.

The Reds finally broke the tie with a goal in the 39th minute from Eunice Beckmann. The play had been set up by Melanie Behringer and Beckmann easily beat the goal keeper. This was Beckmann's second goal in the young season.

Bayern only made one change at the half, subbing off goal scorer Beckmann and bringing on Vanessa Burki.

The second half began much quieter then the first with Bayern's defense taking over the match. However, in the 58th minute, Bayern solidified their lead with a goal from the young American Katie Stengel, who scored her first goal of the Frauen-Bundesliga season. The goal was set up by Gina Lewandowski.

Defense largely took over for the rest of the match as Bayern did not put on the same pressure as they did in the first half. The game was looking like it would end in a shutout until Sylvia Arnold had a huge shot from 16 meters out go straight into the goal. It happened in stoppage time to make the score 2-1.

Frieburg did not have any other chances and the match ended in a 2-1 win for Bayern Munich. The win was the first of the season for the girls in red and gives them four points on the season. There was plenty of reasons to celebrate as the team had control throughout the match and both goals were scored after skilled passes from multiple players.

With this win, Bayern is tied for fifth place with Bayer Leverkusen. It is too early in the season for the table to matter yet, but having four points after two matches is a great way to start the season, and it appears as though many of the new players are making a big impact on the squad.

Bayern has next weekend off. and they will return to the field at home against 1899 Hoffenheim on September 21st. Hoffenheim currently has one point after two matches.
