Lincoln leapfrog Chelsea
 Women's Football News 29 Sep 2013
 
Chelsea 0 Lincoln Ladies 2 (Sweetman-Kirk 44, Fay 54)
Lincoln Ladies leapfrogged Chelsea into sixth place on the final day of the season after recording a deserved 2-0 win against the home side at Wheatsheaf Park. 
 
Lincoln dominated the first half, but it wasn't until shortly before the half hour mark that they really started to up the ante.
 
Casey Stoney shot wide following neat interplay with Jess Clarke outside the box, before Martha Harris gave the hosts a scare with a low shot that struck the foot of the post with Marie Hourihan beaten in the Chelsea goal.

Sweetman-Kirk and Bonnie Horwood then saw headers repelled by Hourihan before the former finally put Lincoln ahead. The former Coventry City striker collected a threaded ball from Remi Allen before calmly rounding Hourihan and slotting home from a tight angle.
 
Chelsea manager Emma Hayes made a double substitution at half time in a bid to gain momentum, but Lincoln's superiority was again evident after the interval. Remi Allen gave a glimpse of her threat with a fierce shot from the edge of the box before Lara Fay netted in the 54th minute.
 
The midfielder found herself in acres of space inside the Chelsea box and had plenty of time to close in on Hourihan before planting the ball into the back of the net from eight yards out.
 
Lincoln tired as the game reached its closing stages - both Eniola Aluko and Helen Ward had chances to reduce the deficit in the final ten minutes - but the visitors held firm to secure their second win of the season.
 
Chelsea: Marie Hourihan, Danielle Buet (sub Helen Ward 45mins), Hannah Blundell, Drew Spence, Sophie Ingle, Katie Holtham, Yuki Ogimi, Laura Coombs (sub Laura Rafferty 79mins), Eniola Aluko, Rosella Ayane, Dunia Susi (sub Jodie Brett 45mins). Subs not used: Carly Telford, Karin Muya, Helen Bleazard. 
 
Lincoln Ladies: Karen Bardsley, Lara Fay, Martha Harris, Amy Turner, Sophie Bradley, Casey Stoney, Bonnie Horwood (sub Megan Harris 80mins), Sophie Walton, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk (sub Lillie Fenlon-Billson 73mins), Remi Allen, Jess Clarke. Subs not used: Jules Draycott, Meaghan Sargeant, Emily Roberts, Aileen Whelan.
