Millwall Lionesses 5 (Gibbons 41,44,68, Sherwood 64, Babajide 84) London Bees 3 (Goddard 35, Whitter 43,45)
Hat-trick hero Fliss Gibbons says she was delighted to help her side get back to winning ways as Millwall Lionesses picked up a 5-3 win over London Bees in a pulsating FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup match.
The Lionesses came into the match on the back of four consecutive league defeats but they weren't to be denied this time and battled from behind to take victory.
Ashleigh Goddard opened the scoring for Bees after 30 minutes with a curling effort from the edge of the box and from then the goals kept coming. Gibbons hit back shortly after with a tap in following some elaborate build up play before Emma Whitter restored the lead after evading a series of ineffective challenges.
Gibbons then netted her second immediately after as Bees keeper Imogen Riches watched the ball loop past her and in off the bar before Whitter cleverly lobbed Sarah Quantrill from the left wing. But the Lionnesses kicked on after the break as Ciara Sherwood restored parity and Gibbons slotted home her third before Rinsola Babajide rounded off proceedings on 84 minutes.
