Second half substitute Lisa De Vanna proved to be the definition of ‘super-sub’ on Sunday, scoring the game-winner in magicJack’s 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Independence just one minute after entering the game.
Christina DiMartino put Philadelphia ahead early at Florida Atlantic University Stadium with an eighth minute goal, but Abby Wambach equalized in the 25th minute. Wambach then proved instrumental in the second half, setting up De Vanna’s goal.
De Vanna entered the game in the 74th minute, replacing defender Tina Ellertson in an attempt to push for the game-winning goal. Within a minute, she found net and delivered a 2-1 win to the home crowd. Philadelphia (0-1-1, 1 pt.) was out-shot 11-8. Next up for magicJack (2-0-0, 6 pts.) is a home match against the Atlanta Beat on Sunday, May 8 at 4 p.m.
