Dani's late strike seals Wolves win
 Women's Football News 23 Sep 2013
Wolverhampton Wanderers staged a dramatic late fightback to beat last year's beaten Premier League Cup finalists Leeds Utd 4-3 in the opening group matches of this season's competition. 
Wolves got off to a great start in the Group Five clash with Jamillah Palmer put them ahead in the opening minute but Leeds fought back strongly, Carey Huegett levelling from the penalty spot and Abbie McIver giving them the lead going into half time. Jordan Timmins-Ray equalised early in the second half with a shot on the turn, then the prolific Huegett netted her second on the hour to put Leeds back in front. Palmer then completed her own double to level the scores once more and after a string of fine saves from Natalie Hall, Dani Selmes gave Wolves victory with a predatory strike in injury time.
There were even more goals on show in Group One where Brighton & Hove Albion edged out Chesham Utd 5-4 in another thrilling clash. Kate Natkiel gave Brighton a first minute lead which was cancelled out by Vicky Gallagher, but Kirsty Barton and Charlotte Owen ensured a two-goal advantage for the Seagulls at the interval. Gallagher scored her second via penalty, before Holly Talbut-Smith restored Brighton's lead with fifteen minutes remaining. Chesham then fought back with Gemma Fraser reducing the arrears and Gallagher completing her hat-trick to level the scores but she was to finish on the losing side as a late own goal from the unfortunate Chloe Gunn turned out to be the winner for Brighton.
In the other Group One match, Gillingham stormed to a 7-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. Seven different players found the net for the Gills, they were Jade Keogh, Danielle Carlton, Emma Tune, Fliss Gibbons, Lauren Phillips, Jay Blackie and Lisa Fulgence while Spurs replied through Frances Gamble and Kimberley Lane.
In Group Two, Lewes notched up their second narrow victory over Portsmouth in successive weeks. Kirsty Spice gave the Rookettes the win with the only goal of the game in the opening minute of the second half.
Group Three meanwhile opened up with a goalless draw between Coventry City and Nottingham Forest, beaten finalists three years ago.
Keynsham Town were the winners of the opening match in Group Four, edging out West Ham Utd by the odd goal in five. Keynsham raced into a two-goal lead in the first half when Julissa Rodriguez put them ahead and Leanne Lapham drilled home the second from the edge of the penalty area. The Hammers came back strongly with Lily Mellors reducing the deficit and then equalising via an Aimee Clark own goal but Keynsham were to have the final say, claiming victory through a superbly struck free kick by Katarzyna Rusek with fifteen minutes remaining.
Sheffield FC kept up their excellent start to the new season with a 2-0 victory over Sporting Club Albion in Group Six. Lisa Giampalma fired the Yorkshire side into a 22nd minute lead and sealed the points in the opening minute of the second half when Suzanne Davies netted the second goal.
Bradford City's first ever appearance in the competition saw them pick up a point from a 1-1 draw against Newcastle Utd in Group Seven. Bradford did take the lead midway through the first half with a strike from Sarah Danby but the home side hit back to earn themselves a share of the spoils with twelve minutes remaining thanks to captain Sarah Wilson.
In the Northern Division, Stoke City went top of the table for the first time in their history with a 2-0 victory away to Blackburn Rovers. Laura Garside opened the scoring for Stoke early in the second half and they wrapped up the win with seven minutes remaining when Chantelle Gallagher netted her fourth goal of the season.
A win would have seen Preston North End take over the leadership but instead they are back in third after going down to a 2-1 defeat at Derby County. In-form Melissa Ball gave Preston a tenth minute lead but Derby hit back to claim a good victory with goals from Cara Newton and Natalie Reay.
