Aston Villa 2 (Rouse 40, Wilkinson 80) Yeovil Town 1 (Wiltshire 85)
Mollie Rouse's spectacular overhead kick helped Aston Villa to a second consecutive WSL 2 victory against Yeovil Town at Coles Lane.
Young star Rouse netted her first senior goal just shy of the interval before Katie Wilkinson doubled Villa's advantage and Sarah Wiltshire set up a tense finale.
Although both sides struggled to create clear cut chances, the home side dominated the opening stages and were deservedly ahead at the break. Yeovil came out in the second half and started asking questions of Joe Hunt's side.
Ann Marie Heatherson clipped the bar with a crisply struck 20-yarder in the 54th minute before Villa goalkeeper Caitlin Leach came bravely off her line to deny Natasha Knapman.
With twn minutes remaining, Villa broke as Alicia Robinson showed composure to stand up her cross to the far post where Wilkinson joyfully headed her second goal in as many matches.
In truth, they could have put extra gloss on the scoreline. Left back Hannah George did well down the left, her cross found Wilkinson who couldn't convert. Down the right, Olivia Fergusson demonstrated good skill to play in forward Wilkinson who missed by a narrow margin.
Sarah Wiltshire set up a frantic finale when she forced home Corinne Yorston's corner amid a melee of players in the 85th minute, but Villa held on for the win.
