The 19-year-old striker went straight to the front of the net, fought off a GKS defender and buried the rebound for her fifth career Champion’s League goal, and her first this season.
She later earned an awkward assist when a soccer ball hit her in the face and bounced past the GKS defence to a teammate, who delivered a cross in front to set up the second PSG goal.
A Saturday rematch will determine which team advances from the round of 32.
The Chilliwack FC product is in her second season with Paris St-Germain, a professional soccer squad based in France.
She has seven goals in 27 career matches with PSG. The talented teen also has 13 goals in 32 appearances with Canadian national teams.
