Liverpool 1 (White 23) Notts County 2 (Clarke 6,56)
Notts County moved themselves back into the top three after battling to a victory at the home of the reigning WSL Champions.
Jess Clarke struck in either half for County and her goals sandwiched an effort from Liverpool debutant Rosie White to secure a 2-1 win.
The visitors were rewarded for their bright start on six minutes when Clarke turned in Ellen White's centre from Alex Greenwood's deep free kick.
Liverpool grew into the match and Rosie White opened her account from close range after Natasha Dowie's initial shot had been blocked on the line. Dowie then tried a speculative long range effort with the bounce almost deceiving County keeper Siobhan Chamberlain who was forced to tip over.
Both sides had great chances on the stroke of half time, first Chamberlain denied Asisat Oshoala before Rachel Williams' header struck the base of the post at the other end.
After the break, Ellen White broke the offside trap and unselfishly squared for Clarke to power home her fourth of the season before being forced off injured.
Ellen White had two great chances to secure the points but her header flew just wide before Libby Stout smothered her shot late on.
