Blackburn make strong start
 Women's Football News 21 Aug 2012
 
Blackburn Rovers served notice that they are set to be amongst the main contenders in the Northern Division when they won 3-0 away to newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers in the first round of league matches on Sunday. 
 
The first half ended goalless but Keeleigh Savage put Rovers in front just before the hour when she converted a left wing cross. Kim Turner added the second late on and Lagan Makin rounded off the scoring in injury time with a well struck volley.
 
However the game was marred as Wolves' Rebecca Large sustained a broken ankle following a challenge during the second half.
 
There was better news for the other team making their return to the league as Newcastle Utd came from two goals behind to beat Nottingham Forest 3-2. Natasha Meade gave Forest the lead after just three minutes and Amanda Barr added a second early in the second half but a Stacy Crooks hat-trick, including the winner with ten minutes left on the clock, ensured a winning start for the Magpies.
 
Carla Ward was another player to score a hat-trick as Sheffield FC opened up with a 4-2 victory away to Sporting Club Albion. Jodie Michalska joined her on the scoresheet while the home side replied through a double from Robyn James, including one from the penalty spot.
 
Preston North End meanwhile picked up three points as they edged out Derby County by the odd goal in five. Emily Hutton and Gemma Watson put Preston two ahead at half time with Hannah Ward pulling one back for County. Alison Taberner restored Preston's two-goal advantage and although Michelle Kilmartin gave Derby late hope, Preston held out for a 3-2 win.
