Millwall Lionesses 3 (Agg 1,32, Sherwood 56) Yeovil Town 1 (Bray 19)
Two goals from Lily Agg and a first strike of the season from Ciara Sherwood saw Millwall Lionesses clinch a comfortable victory over Yeovil Town in FA WSL 2.
Agg's brace, either side of a Laura Bray equaliser, helped put Millwall 2-1 up at half time, before Lily turned provider for Sherwood to complete a morale boosting win at The Den.
The Lionesses made the perfect start, scoring in the first minute, as Agg beat her marker on the edge of the box and fired a crisp finish beyond Rachel Simkin in the Yeovil goal.
Lionesses' keeper Sarah Quantrill then had to be sharp off her line to preserve Millwall's lead in the 12th minute as Helen Bleazard looked to beat the offside trap. Bleazard then played an important part in her side's equaliser on 19 minutes, delivering a cross from the left to set up Laura Bray.
The hosts continued to threaten and their attacking endeavour was rewarded on 32 minutes. A great overlap allowed Frankie Strugnell space to cross for Agg to head home her second of the game and secure Millwall's lead at the break.
Yeovil enjoyed a good spell of pressure at the start of the second-half and were unlucky when Ellie Curson put Bleazard clear, but she was well tackled. Another fine through ball put Bray in the clear on 51 minutes, her first shot was blocked and the rebound drew another excellent save from Quantrill.
The visitors' hopes for a comeback were dashed six minutes later as Agg centred for Ciara Sherwood to smash home her debut goal at WSL 2 level, and secure the Lionesses first win in five games.
The closing stages also saw promising development team striker Shannel Peat make her first appearance for the senior team, coming on as a sub for Sherwood in the 75th minute.
