Everton 4 (Williams pen 7, D.Turner 37,83, Magill 53) Millwall Lionesses 1 (Hincks 31)
Everton recorded their third FA WSL2 win in succession with a 4-1 victory over Millwall Lionesses at the Select Security Stadium.
Everton started brightly and were in front after just seven minutes. Danielle Turner was tripped in the penalty area by Millwall defender Frankie Strugnell, who injured herself in the process of her clumsy tackle, and Williams blasted in the resulting spot kick.
The Blue Girls almost doubled a couple of minutes later but Michelle Hinnigan's free kick dipped just over the bar. The visitors nearly drew level in the 19th minute through Ashlee Hincks, who sent a dipping free kick from distance crashing onto the bar but she didn't have to wait long for another chance on goal.
Just after the half hour mark Hincks showed quick feet to evade two tackles inside the box before firing low past Kirstie Levell.
However, the scores weren't level for long. A few minutes after Hincks' equaliser, Danielle Turner converted Emily Hollinshead's low cross after smart build up play from Magill to put the Blue Girls ahead once more.
Everton piled on the pressure as the half drew to a close and Hinnigan again went close sending a thundering drive towards goal after a neat stepover by Kelly Jones but Sarah Quantrill produced a superb save, tipping the Blue Girls skipper's effort onto the bar.
The Blue Girls began the second half in the same fashion in which the ended the first. All of the play was in the Blues' favour and shortly after the restart the side got their third of the afternoon when Magill raced onto a sloppy backpass from Jordan Buttler and slotted past Quantrill from close range.
The visitors nearly got themselves back into the match through Fliss Gibbons but Levell made a fantastic save to deny the Millwall forward.
With just under a quarter of an hour left to play the ball was in the net once more for Everton but Millie Turner was adjudged to be offside when firing in. Millwall also had a goal disallowed minutes later when Gibbons was judged to have handballed before scoring past Levell.
As the match was reaching the latter stages Turner wrapped things up for the Blue Girls with her second of the game expertly nodding in Danielle Lea's whipped cross to seal the Everton's third league victory in a row.
