Doncaster Rovers Belles 4 (Cresswell 45,63, Thomas 69, Mills 71) Oxford Utd 1 (Osborne-Ricketts 42)
Doncaster Rovers Belles made it two wins out of two in FA WSL 2 with an easy win over Oxford United in a match they dominated at the Keepmoat Stadium.
The Belles might have found themselves several goals to the good at the break were it not for some wasteful finishing.
Jess Sigsworth failed to convert at the end of two separate slaloming runs through the United defence, and skipper Leandra Little put a free header over the bar.
Oxford punished that profligacy three minutes from the break when Sahara Osborne-Ricketts just about squeezed the ball over the line from six yards after Donny failed to clear a cross.
But Oxford didn't manage to take that lead into the break after Demi Lambourne picked up Jemma Connor-Iommi's back pass in first half added time, allowing Lauren Cresswell to find the top corner from Sue Smith's indirect free kick.
Cresswell added her second from another set piece to give Doncaster the lead on 63 minutes, curling a fantastic 25-yard free kick into substitute keeper Hannah Cox's top corner.
The Belles' improvement in front of goal continued with two goals in two minutes as Reanne Thomas found the top corner from Sigsworth's square ball, before substitute Ashleigh Mills chipped Cox from a tight angle.
