Lyon added more hardware to its growing trophy cabinet, claiming the French league title with a 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.

The victory marks Lyon’s 15th French league championship. The club reclaimed the top spot after PSG upset Lyon last season for the title.

USWNT star Catarina Macario scored the game-winning goal for Lyon, opening her account in the third minute. The American striker made a darting run up the flank to get in behind the PSG backline before beating the goalkeeper with a far-post rocket.

Macario finished the 2021-2022 league campaign with 13 goals and five assists in 18 matches played. Her goals tally is the second-most in the league behind PSG’s Marie-Antoinette Katoto, who logged 18 and four assists in 20 games played.

Lyon’s league title comes after the French side defeated powerhouse Barcelona for the Champions League trophy on May 21.
