Everton 3 (K.Jones 39, Magill 50, Davies 78) Durham Women 0
Goals from Kelly Jones, Simone Magill and Lauren Davies on her debut meant Everton cruised to victory against Durham Women this evening.
Andy Spence made eight changes to the side that saw The Blues seal their place in the final of the FA Women's Cup on Sunday, with again a youthful side on display in this Women's Continental Cup Clash.
However despite the change in faces, the Blues continued the momentum from that brilliant win last weekend with a superb opening to the game. Billie Murphy returning to the side with an inch perfect ball into Kelly Jones who fired just over Danielle Hill's crossbar on two minutes.
Kelly Jones continued to keep the Durham shot stopper busy all evening. The first a cheeky chip that forced the keeper to stretch and palm away before netting the first goal of the game. A loose ball on the edge was met with the left peg of the midfielder who curled one into the top right hand corner and into the net, six minutes before half time.
The goal had been coming, especially as just minutes before, Everton were denied by the crossbar, Michelle Hinnigan releasing a piledriver from 25 yards with the keeper well beaten, only for the ball to rattle the bar.
Throughout the first half, Durham only seriously threatened from set pieces through the head of Caroline Dixon, the striker getting on the end of a free kick then a corner, but both attempts sailed off target. An early ball from Zoe Ness on 29 minutes the exception which deceived everyone in a Blue shirt, playing in Rosie Young through on goal, but she could only direct her header straight at the goalkeeper.
Five minutes into the second half and Everton went two goals to the good through Simone Magill. A through ball from Lucy Whipp found its way into Kelly Jones whose initial effort was saved by the keeper before Magill slotted the ball into an empty net to double the Toffees' advantage.
Durham could have halved their deficit when Ness went through on goal with the forward having two bites of the cherry to pull one back, her first effort forcing Walsh to parry before the rebound came back to her but she could only fire over.
On the hour, Kelly Jones broke away from the halfway line to almost grab her second before the goalkeeping efforts of Hill kept her at bay, but it was a girl on her debut who did give Everton their third.
From outside the box, Davies' curling effort sailed right into the top corner to give the Blues a third and ensured they left this evening with maximum points.
Everton: Megan Walsh, Vicky Jones, Billie Murphy, Lauren Davies, Fern Whelan (sub Alex Greenwood 45mins), Caitlin Hayes, Emily Hollinshead, Michelle Hinnigan (sub Brooke Chaplen 45mins), Lucy Whipp, Simone Magill, Kelly Jones.
