Prolific Vidarsdóttir tops scorers' table

Margrét Lára Vidarsdóttir finished as the UEFA Women's Cup top scorer for the third time after FCR 2001 Duisburg forward Inka Grings fell just short of catching the Iceland striker's joint-record tally of 14 for Valur Reykjavík.

Margrét Lára Vidarsdóttir finished as top goalscorer for the 2008/09 UEFA Women's Cup after FCR 2001 Duisburg forward Inka Grings fell just short of catching the Iceland striker.

Record tally
Vidarsdóttir, now with Linköpings FC, struck 14 goals for for Valur Reykjavík in the two qualifying rounds in autumn, equalling a record set by Conny Pohlers for 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam in 2004/05. Grings began the final against Zvezda-2005 five short of Vidarsdóttir but a first-leg hat-trick gave her hope of catching her rival in Friday's night's home return.

Third triumph
However, Grings did not find the target at the MSV Arena, meaning Vidarsdóttir ended top of the table for the third time, on her own in 2005/06 and jointly with Vera Djatel and Patrizia Panico last term. The 22-year-old Vidarsdóttir, also the top scorer in UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2009™ qualifying, is set to compete in next season's UEFA Women's Champions League with Linköpings, while Grings's Duisburg have also now earned a place.
