Aussies Abroad: Yallop nets a double in five-star Klepp win

Tameka Yallop struck twice as Klepp IL stormed to a 5-0 triumph against Stabaek in Norway.

Yallop fired the hosts in the lead at Klepp Stadion in 17 minutes, but it took until 61 minutes for American defender Zaneta Wyne to make it two.

The floodgates opened the Elisabeth Terland struck on 70 minutes and the 81-cap Westfield Matilda netted her second, and ninth goal of the season, six minutes later.

Terland doubled her tally as the clock ticked past 90 as Klepp cemented their fourth-place position in the Toppserien after 19 matches.

Yallop’s side lie four points behind league leaders Lillestrøm, who raced to a 2-1 win against fifth-placed Avaldsnes.

The 28-year-old, who is Brisbane Roar's all-time Westfield W-League top goalscorer, this week announced she is re-joining her home state club for the 2019/20 Season.
