Everton boost Cup hopes
 Women's Football News 14 May 2012
Everton 1 (Hinnigan 72) Doncaster Rovers Belles 0
A Michelle Hinnigan goal gave Everton their first three points in the Continental Cup and in turn ended Doncaster Rovers Belles' hopes of progression in a one-sided game encounter at the Arriva Stadium. 
With both sides suffering defeats in their opening group games, the Blues dominated from the start, Toni Duggan forcing two corners in the opening five minutes and the Everton forward again caused problems for the Belles back line when she combined well with Nikita Parris but saw her scuffed shot easily blocked.
Doncaster rarely threatened in the first 45 minutes, Alyssa Lagonia firing over from long range proving to be their only real effort.
The home side continued to press with Parris and fellow winger Gwennan Harries giving the Doncaster full backs a torrid time but the elusive first goal failed to materialise in a frustrating first half.
The game continued very much in the same vein after the break, Parris shooting wide from a narrow angle after Jill Scott's defence-splitting pass.
The ever-dangerous Parris continued to torment the Doncaster back line, but Duggan failed to read the winger's flick after some tremendous individual play.
With Everton frustrations growing, manager Mo Marley introduced Natasha Dowie and the striker - making her first appearance of the season - was instantly involved when her dangerous centre was well cleared by Belles' sub Shelby Hills.
The home side had a decent shout for a penalty when Dowie appeared to have been bundled over by Tanya Oxtoby but referee Natalie Walker waved away the appeals.
The breakthrough finally came when Alex Greenwood's purposeful run and cross was partially parried by Doncaster stopper Mary Earps after pressure from Parris, and midfielder Hinnigan was quickest to react and plant the loose ball into the net from inside the six yard box.
Everton continued to press, Greenwood again proving dangerous down the left but Parris failed to connect by a matter of inches.
Brooke Chaplen - on for the outstanding Parris - was unlucky not to add to the lead when a clever flick from Duggan beat Doncaster's offside trap but Earps was alert to smother the danger and then again to deny Chaplen in injury time, by tipping her effort round the post.
