All-Europe striker Kyri Bye-Nagel made her 2005 debut memorable as she scored five goals in the Hanau’s 5-4 road victory over scrappy Mannheim.

According to Mannheim boys coach Martin Goering, Bye-Nagel, after providing her team a 2-0 halftime lead, broke a 4-4 tie in the final minute.

Mannheim, which battled back from one-goal deficits three times, had a breakaway after Bye-Nagel’s final goal, but Hanau was able to bring down the Lady Bison’s ball carrier in the box without being called for a foul.

Tiesha Jackson scored twice and added an assist in the opening game of the season for both teams.
