Everton profit from second half goals
 Women's Football News 30 Aug 2015
Durham Women 0 Everton 2 (K.Jones 62, Johnson 90)
Everton claimed their second win over Durham Women in a week with a 2-0 victory in the Continental Cup on Sunday afternoon.
Everton started the game brightly, controlling possession and getting forward at pace. Jess King attempted to pick out Kelly Jones with a reverse pass, but Durham goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse was out quickly to smother the danger.
Interim Everton manager Nicola Anderson was forced into an early change in the 6th minute when Megan Finnigan couldn't run off an ankle injury and she was replaced by Millie Turner.
As the first half progressed, the game started to open up more with Everton creating chances by the minute. King and Claudia Walker were unlucky not to get a touch on Vicky Jones' cross before Michelle Hinnigan fired narrowly wide after a flowing move.
Durham created their first real chance of the game in the 30th minute as Beth Hepple broke through the defence but couldn't find a way past Kirstie Levell, who pulled off an impressive save to keep the scores level.
The home side then went even closer to grabbing the opening goal of the game as Nicki Gears burst into the box before seeing her low shot bounce clear off the post. Jess White was lurking in the six yard area but couldn't get a clean contact on the ball and sent it out for a goal kick from close range.
The Blue Girls came firing out of the blocks for the second half and created a half chance within a minute of the restart. Emily Hollinshead attacked the goal line and cut the ball back for Kelly Jones, who couldn't get her first time shot on target.
Everton continued to apply the pressure on the home side's defence and came close again in the 49th minute through Emily Hollinshead. The Welsh forward created room for herself on the edge of the area before firing a ferocious shot towards goal, forcing Anna Moorhouse to tip it onto the post.
Kirstie Levell, a spectator for most of the game, was called into action midway through the first half as she made a save down low to her left to prevent Natalie Gutteridge's free kick hitting the back of the net.
The deadlock was finally broken in the 62nd minute as the Blue Girls got a deserved goal through Kelly Jones, as she smashed an effort into the top corner following a flowing Everton move for her third goal in two games against Durham.
With twenty minutes to go, Millie Turner was forced off with an ankle injury to leave Everton to play the remainder of the game with ten players after making all three substitutions prior to the midfielder's knock.
The reduced numbers didn't affect the Blue Girls though as they launched a counter attack soon after through Jess King. She went on a mazy 30-yard run before firing narrowly past the outside of Moorhouse's right hand post.
Durham were close to equalising as the clock ticked into the 81st minute, but captain Michelle Hinnigan was aware to the danger to back pedal and clear Meg Lawson's curling effort off the line.
The three points were secured in added time at the end of the second half as Lindsay Johnson rose above her marker to send a looping header over Moorhouse and into the back of the net to ensure it was a happy bus journey home for the Blue Girls. 
Durham Women: Anna Moorhouse, Lauren Jordinson, Sarah Wilson (sub Meg Lawson 69mins), Julie Nelson, Jordan Atkinson, Chloe Macek, Beth Hepple, Natalie Gutteridge, Nicki Gears, Amelia Pereira, Jess White (sub Erin Kelley 66mins). Subs not used: Helen Alderson, Gaby Banks.

Everton: Kirstie Levell, Vicky Jones, Ellie Stewart (sub Paige Williams 66mins), Lindsay Johnson, Gabrielle George, Michelle Hinnigan, Megan Finnigan (sub Millie Turner 6mins), Kelly Jones, Emily Hollinshead, Jess King, Claudia Walker (sub Danielle Turner 63mins). Sub not used: Megan Walsh.
