KIEV, Ukraine (AP) Lyon scored three goals in five minutes to beat Wolfsburg 3-1 in extra time and win the Women's Champions League for the third year running on Thursday.

After an often-quiet 90 minutes, the final roared into life in extra time when Wolfsburg's Pernille Harder scored in the 93rd minute with a low shot from distance as Lyon goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi - hurt in an earlier collision - was slow to react.

However, Wolfsburg collapsed when midfielder Alexandra Popp was sent off for a second booking.

Lyon pulled level with Amandine Henry's half-volley in the 98th and took the lead almost immediately when Shanice van de Sanden's cross found Eugenie Le Sommer in front of goal.

Ada Hegerberg made it 3-1 soon after. Camille Abily added a fourth in the 116th.
