Arsenal notch up first league win

Arsenal 2 (Humphrey 8, Losada 27) Bristol Academy 0
Arsenal returned to their free flowing best with a 2-0 win against Bristol Academy at Meadow Park on Wednesday night. 
 
Carla Humphrey swept in from close range to give Arsenal the lead before Vicky Losada scored her first goal for the club during a dominant first half. Danielle Carter and Lianne Sanderson came close to increasing the Gunners' advantage after the break as they built confidence and momentum ahead of Sunday's massive clash at Manchester City.
 
Arsenal made up for Sunday's uncharacteristically sluggish performance with a bright start against the Vixens, and Carter was unlucky to see her sweeping strike cleared off the line in the opening exchanges.
 
However, the Gunners only needed two more minutes to stamp their mark on the tie. Carter won the ball in Bristol's box and centred to Humphrey who smashed past Mary Earps from six yards.
 
Losa's side looked eager to make amends for their FA Cup exit a few days earlier and their efforts were soon rewarded with a second goal. Emma Mitchell's deep delivery was headed back across goal by Alex Scott and Losada sent a half volley into the top corner.
 
Bristol did threaten before the break. Nadia Lawrence rifled towards goal from far and then near, but neither of her powerful strikes troubled Chamberlain.
 
Arsenal continued their dominance after the break and could have had a third just minutes after the restart, but Jordan Nobbs sent her 25-yard volley just over the crossbar. Bristol tried to gain a foothold in the game when Sophie Ingle and Lawrence lashed half volleys towards goal, but Chamberlain was well placed to maintain the Gunners' lead.
 
The game opened up as the visitors sought a way back into the game and Arsenal nearly took advantage. Carter combined brilliantly with Scott and the forward beat Earps before sending a low strike into the side netting.
 
Substitute Sanderson was behind the Gunners' final chances. First her volley was saved by Earps before the goalkeeper pushed the England forward's header to Carter, who headed the rebound against the post as Arsenal cruised to their first win of the season.
