American Exports: Goodson, Brondby lose on opening day

AMSTERDAM — A trio of Americans clocked in overseas on Sunday, with Clarence Goodson and Brøndby dropping a 1-0 result at home to Odense BK on opening day.

The Lads from the Western Outskirts have now dropped five consecutive Superliga matches, dating back to last season.

Across the water in Norway, Steve Clark earned the Man of the Match nod in a losing cause as Hønefoss fell 2-1 at Viking. It was the fourth such honor of the season for the netminder, who registered five saves.

Sean Cunningham and cellar-dwellers Stabæk were on the wrong side of a 3-1 decision at Sogndal. The Blue Ones have lost three straight to slip nine points adrift of a safety place.
