Four-goal Durham deny Bees
 Women's Football News 26 Jul 2015
Durham Women 4 (Gutteridge 14, Atkinson 19, Corrie 34, Hepple 85) London Bees 1 (Goddard 17)
London Bees spurned the chance to move up to eighth in the WSL2 table and record back-to-back league wins for the first time in their history on Sunday, going down 4-1 to Durham Women at New Ferens Park. 
After a scrappy opening in which neither side managed to maintain possession for any length of time, it was Durham who got their noses in front from a corner as Natalie Gutteridge stabbed home from close range after she was the first to react to a loose ball in the box.
The Bees quickly levelled however, as Rebecca Anderson controlled a ball towards the back post before rifling a volley back against the bar which may have crossed the line on its own before Ashleigh Goddard made sure by bundling home.
Yet the Bees were level for less than two minutes after they were caught short at the back, with Beth Hepple finding Courtney Corrie in acres of space on the right, as the striker forced a diving save from Imogen Riches only for Jordan Atkinson to race in and convert the rebound from a tight angle.
The visitors did have a glorious chance to equalise on 25 minutes as Goddard headed a free kick down into the path of Amber Gaylor, but after controlling the ball the striker was only able to shoot wide from deep inside the box.
It proved a crucial moment in the match, as Durham extended their lead in spectacular fashion ten minutes before the break after Courtney Corrie shimmied past a defender on the edge of the area before unleashing a ferocious strike into the top corner and put the hosts in control.
The Bees more than held their own during the second half but they struggled to carve out any meaningful chances as their two strikers became increasingly peripheral figures on the pitch.
Julian Broomes looked to inject some more energy into their play by introducing fresh legs in the form of Billie Brooks and Andria Georgiou in central midfield in place of Paige Wakefield and Rebecca Anderson. Yet it was Durham who looked the most likely to score the next goal, with Gutteridge rattling the bar from 25 yards out.
And so it proved, as Durham wrapped up the three points with just a few minutes left on the clock as Beth Hepple jinked her way into the area before firing a low show inside the near post and into the bottom corner to make it 4-1 on the afternoon and leave the Bees ruing what might have been. 
Durham Women: Helen Alderson, Jennifer Jennings, Sarah Wilson, Julie Nelson, Jessica Havelock, Lauren Jordinson (sub Chloe Macek 60mins), Beth Hepple, Natalie Gutteridge (sub Victoria Linsley 82mins), Jordan Atkinson, Nicki Gears, Courtney Corrie (sub Jess White 79mins). Subs not used: Anne Moorhouse, Amelia Pereira.

London Bees: Imogen Riches; Kara-May Howes, Jade Dempster, Aoife Hurley, Katherine Huggins (sub Lucy Loomes 84mins), Paige Wakefield (sub Billie Brooks 68mins), Rebecca Anderson (sub Andria Georgiou 73mins), Ashleigh Goddard, Paula Howells, Emma Whitter, Amber Gaylor. Subs not used: Sophie Harris, Samantha Miller, Sydney Hinchcliffe.
