WFC Fulham have taken over the Southern Division leadership for the first time this season following a 3-0 victory over previous leaders Barnet.
With both sides in invincible league form over the last month or so, the game was set to be a hard fought affair. Fulham however had to overcome the loss of leading scorer Ann Marie Heatherson with a back injury along with goalkeeper Michelle Blezley. This would have been a big blow in the past, but the newly assembled larger Fulham squad had cover in recently transferred centre back Tammy Scrivens, who has played at the top level over the last few years for Arsenal, Fulham Ladies, Bristol Academy, and Watford. Also coming into the line up was goalkeeper Jessica Devoli transferred just two weeks ago from Barnet Ladies to play against her old club.
The first half saw a slow start as both teams looked for any weaknesses in their opponent line up, the teams fought out a somewhat lacklustre first period with one Fulham strike against the Barnet bar being the high light.
The second period was a different affair for Fulham as they got off to a flyer with a Kate McIntyre strike on 46 minutes from outside the Barnet box to slot home Fulham's first goal. Danielle Farmer then continued her recent goal scoring form as she sent the ball in the far left corner of the Barnet net.
With both sides competing for every ball, a late tackle in the penalty box on Fulham's Susannah Abbott in the 68 minute resulted in the awarding of a penalty, leaving Leah Jones to convert Fulham's third to wrap up the victory for her side.
