Uchenna Kanu helps Pensacola to win the US Women's Premier Soccer League title

Uchenna Kanu was on target as Pensacola defeated Utah Royals Reserves 4-3 after extra-time in Sunday's American women's championship final.

In 2018, the Nigeria international scored nine goals in six games in her first season despite her side losing in the final to Seattle Sounders.

To reach this year's final, the 21-year-old forward scored as Pensacola defeated defending champions Sounders 3-2 to advance on Friday.

On Sunday, last year's finalists started on the back foot as Mikayla Colohan gave Utah the first-half lead 19 minutes into the encounter.

Two minutes after the restart of the game, Briana Morris cancelled Colohan's opener to level matters for the southern region outfit.
