Belles off to winning start
 Women's Football News 17 Apr 2014
Aston Villa 0 Doncaster Rovers Belles 2 (England 15, Smith pen 86)
Doncaster Rovers Belles opened their FAWSL 2 account in style with a comfortable away win at Sutton Coldfield. 
The Belles began the game on the on top with Millie Bright and Sue Smith both testing Leach in the Villa goal from range. A brilliant run from right back Lyndsey Cunningham almost created the opening but for some good defending.
Sigsworth then had the first golden opportunity to give the Belles the lead but striker cut the ball back to Smith who was denied by a last ditch tackle.
Beth England's opener was always coming though and it came on the fifteen minute mark, the striker volleying home following good work down the left by Jess Sigsworth.
Villa began the second half the brighter with Sarah Mayling going through but Nicola Hobbs was aware to any danger and cleared well. The Belles were still knocking at the door for a second though and went close when Millie Bright's late run into the box went unnoticed but she could only head onto the bar from Cunningham's cross.
Jade Richards attempted to offer up an early goal of the season contender at the other end but her overhead kick went wide of the mark following a corner.
The home side were well in the ascendency on 69 minutes and almost grabbed an equaliser when Carly Davies found space in the box but Hobbs saved well from close range. Ashleigh Mills showed signs that the Belles were still capable of posing a threat but her shot was easily held by Caitlin Leach.
Mayling was next to test Hobbs in a second half dominated by the home side with the Belles' stopper tipping wide.
The second goal arrived after Sue Smith sent Sigsworth away down the right and the striker was brought down by Maddy Cusack after 86 minutes. Smith coolly slotted home the penalty into the top corner past a helpless Leach to give the Belles a commanding lead.
Alicia Robinson almost caught Hobbs out in added time but the Belles keeper managed to tip over as she kept her clean sheet intact.
