Liverpool 2 (Keryakopis 17,55) Lincoln Ladies 3 (Staniforth 58, Hamilton 71, Allen 85)
Lincoln Ladies staged a second half fightback to break Liverpool hearts and give themselves a much needed third victory of the season in the FA WSL.
The sides' last encounter had produced a 3-3 draw and this time the drama began early. On 17 minutes Hannah Keryakoplis' spectacular effort from a tight angle flew over the head of goalkeeper Nicola Hobbs to put the Reds ahead.
The visitors' bench demanded patience, as they enjoyed plenty of possession without properly testing Nicky Davies in the Liverpool goal.
After the turnaround Emily Gielnik headed against the post following superb link-up play between Kelly Jones and Keryakoplis.
It became 2-0 when Keryakoplis unleashed an effort that soared high in to the net. At that point it looked like Matt Beard would be celebrating his first win since recently taking over as Liverpool boss.
Trailing by two, Lincoln continued to retain possession and were rewarded when Lucy Staniforth's shot went beyond the unsighted Davies.
Parity arrived on 70 minutes. Precious Hamilton got the goal her superb performance deserved as she headed in from close range.
Liverpool seemed shocked to be suddenly level and then had Davies to thank for two superb saves in the closing stages. However, there was little she could do when Remi Allen anticipated a bouncing ball and arrived in the area to decide the contest.
