Arsenal 3 (Janssen 33, Oshoala 46, Carter 68) Reading FC Women 1 (Boho-Sayo 58)
Arsenal got their WSL 1 campaign off to a winning start and new signing Asisat Oshoala was amongst the goalscorers as they defeated newly promoted Reading FC Women at Boreham Wood.
Reading saw their resistance broken on 33 minutes when Dominique Janssen drove at the visitors' back four and planted a low shot beyond Grace Moloney from the edge of the area.
Seconds after the interval, Oshoala latched on to Danielle Carter's pass and rounded Moloney before rolling the ball into an empty net for number two.
Debutant Jade Boho-Sayo stooped low to head Reading back into the contest just before the hour mark, but Carter made the result safe when she nodded in a corner 20 minutes from time.
