Notts County 0 Bristol Academy 1 (Boho-Sayo 22)
Bristol Academy gave their WSL 1 survival hopes a huge shot in the arm with a 1-0 success over Notts County at Meadow Lane.
The Vixens backed up two recent Continental Cup wins with their first league triumph of the season at the tenth attempt.
Academy visited high flying Notts County with just two points to their name from their previous nine games but Jade Boho-Sayo's first half header ended the wait for victory in the league and they are now one point behind Birmingham City and only a further three adrift of sixth placed Liverpool.
Jess Clarke terrorised the Bristol defence early on and Dunia Susi almost got on the end of her cross to grab an opener for the hosts, who were beaten in the SSE Women's FA Cup final at the weekend.
That opener, however, went to the visitors after 22 minutes when a deflected ball into the box fell to Boho-Sayo, who took full advantage to loop a header over Carly Telford for her third league goal in as many games.
Susi then went close again, denied by the post after heading a corner goalwards, before Boho-Sayo rattled the bar from just inside the Lady Pies half.
Laura Bassett fired over from six yards late on and the pressure intensified but Notts couldn't find a leveller and Academy doggedly clung on to notch up three valuable points.
