Chelsea edge out Liverpool
 Women's Football News 14 May 2012
Chelsea 2 (Lander 1, Susi 48) Liverpool 1 (Gielnik 61)
An early goal in each half gave Chelsea all three points in the Continental Cup Group B clash and kept up their hopes of going through but ended Liverpool's chances. 
Robbie Johnson's side was unchanged from the side that narrowly lost to Arsenal last weekend and they got off to the worst possible start by going behind after just 33 seconds, Sue Lappin fed through Helen Lander and the Chelsea striker made no mistake in slotting past Nicky Davies in the Liverpool goal.
That lead could have been doubled on five minutes as a long clearance from Lara Fay was latched on to by Chelsea skipper Dunia Susi but the winger prodded wide from ten yards.
Liverpool, to their credit, improved as the half went on and they had their best chance on the quarter hour as Emily Gielnik was afforded time and space by Hannah Keryakoplis' knock down but the Australian Under-20 International volleyed over from eight yards.
Chelsea always looked threatening on the break and when Lander was fed through by Sophie Gwilliam she looked certain to score but a fantastic save from Davies kept the visitors in the game.
The Reds nearly got a fortuitous equaliser on the stroke of half time as Chelsea centre half Gemma Bonner miscued her clearance onto her own bar but much to her relief, the ball bounced over for a corner.
Chelsea, like in the first half, started much the brighter as Susi smashed a right footed strike against the bar from Drew Spence's long ball.
It wasn't long though before the lead was doubled as Susi latched onto Ingle's long ball and this time smashed past Davies for 2-0.
Liverpool's reply came just after the hour mark as substitute Chloe Jones fed through Gielnik who was calm and composed to slot past Sarah Quantrill and give the visitors hope.
That goal gave Liverpool a lift and they started to build real momentum with Keryakoplis doing brilliantly in the area and bending a right foot shot just wide.
Jones then went close herself as she volleyed over from the edge of the area and good work from Michelle Evans, but as chances went by the visitors could sense there luck wasn't in.
That was confirmed when more good work from Evans led to Katie Brusell being presented with a wonderful opportunity but she couldn't adjust her body to nod home inside the six yard area.
