Lincoln continue improvement
 Women's Football News 13 Aug 2011
Lincoln Ladies 4 (Little 36, Stoney 40, Smith 59, Clarke 72)
Liverpool 2 (Twohig 13, Brusell 43)

Lincoln Ladies moved back into fifth place in the FA WSL following an entertaining victory at Sincil Bank in front of the ESPN cameras. 
Neither team could make an impact on the opening stages, but it was Liverpool who were able to set an early tempo. On seven minutes, Liverpool's Nicky Twohig found herself with the ball at her feet for a free kick 25 yards from goal. The resulting set piece never reached the goal, and gave the Lincoln the chance to break through the middle. Eventually though, the attack lost momentum and it was Liverpool who again had the chance to advance.
Minutes later, the away side had another opportunity, after the Lady Imps goalkeeper, Nicola Hobbs fumbled in her area, leaving Kelly Jones to shoot from outside the area. Hobbs was able to redeem herself though, with a reflex save.
On 13 minutes, Liverpool had a free kick midway into the Lincoln half. Chloe Jones was responsible for the delivery, which after Hobbs failed to gather fell to Twohig at the back post who was able to head into the back of the net. The goal seemed to jolt the home side into action as they grew into the game over the next ten minutes.
Just after the 20 minute mark, the Lady Imps had their best two chances of the game so far. The first was through Jodie Taylor who was one-on-one with Gibbons in the Liverpool goal. Gibbons was able to keep the ball out but the ball then fell to Jess Clarke who was lurking dangerously outside the box. Clarke fired along the ground, and had it not been for Gibbons' dive, it would have nestled in the bottom right hand corner.
Just before the half an hour mark, the home side were once again in danger, after Hobbs failed to collect another inswinging free kick. This time though, the resulting header from Emma Jones was kept out by the Lady Imps defence. The ball then fell to Lynda Shepherd 25 yards out and the midfielder smashed her shot onto the bar, saving the Lincoln goalkeeper any further blushes.
The game was then brought to life via a piece of Sue Smith magic, as the winger's inswinging corner was diverted in by Leandra Little. The defender appeared to have handled the ball over the line but the goal was given and the home team were back on level terms.
The goal marked the start of Lincoln's domination as they forced opportunities every time they went forwards. As their confidence grew, you could sense that another goal was coming and on 40 minutes, Casey Stoney prodded the ball beyond Gibbons after Rachel Daly's shot had been blocked following a goalmouth scramble to give the hosts the lead.
The lead only lasted three minutes though, as Liverpool were able to equalise through Katie Brusell. The midfielder shot from outside the area, and after a sharp deflection off Stoney, the ball nestled in the top left hand corner of Hobbs' goal.
The Lady Imps continued to dominate proceedings after the break and just before the hour, another Smith corner led to them going back in front as the unfortunate Vicky Jones' header went in off the underside of the bar as she attempted to clear.
Jess Clarke was able to cap the Lincoln performance with a fourth goal after Lucy Staniforth burst down the right and crossed for Little whose powerful header came back off the post and Clarke was on hand to tuck home from the rebound.
