Chelsea repeat Keepmoat success - 25 Mar 2016 - Women's Football NewsDoncaster Rovers Belles 1 (Rafferty og 16)
Chelsea 4 (Carney 12, England 23, Chapman 43, Aluko 84)

Chelsea produced a four-goal showing against Doncaster Rovers Belles to open their defence of the WSL 1 title in style at the Keepmoat Stadium. 
The defending champions won at Doncaster at the weekend in the SSE Women's FA Cup and they followed that showing up with a second 4-1 win.
Karen Carney made it two goals in her first two games for Chelsea by converting from the spot after Leandra Little tripped Millie Bright. Doncaster were level just four minutes later as Courtney Sweetman-Kirk's cross from the left narrowly missed Jess Sigsworth's attempted header, only for Claire Rafferty to slice badly into her own goal.
Bethany England marked her first start for Chelsea with a goal against her former club from a Carney corner to restore the lead, and skipper Katie Chapman doubled it via the same route just before the break.
Chelsea wrapped up a repeat result five minutes from time after Ji So-Yun heeded Eniola Aluko's shout to leave substitute Gemma Davison's cross before the England striker curled a fourth into the bottom corner. 
Doncaster Rovers Belles: Nicola Hobbs, Emily Simpkins, Rhiannon Roberts, Leandra Little, Sophie Barker, Sam Tierney (sub Rachel Newborough 72mins), Becky Easton (sub Yasmin Mosby 86mins), Kasia Lipka, Jess Sigsworth, Natasha Dowie, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk. Subs not used: Anna Moorhouse, Alexandra Gummer, Izzy Whittle, Tilly Hallas-Potts, Lauren Breen.

Chelsea: Hedvig Lindahl, Hannah Blundell, Niamh Fahey, Gilly Flaherty (sub Fran Kirby 64mins), Claire Rafferty, Karen Carney (sub Gemma Davison 64mins), Katie Chapman, Millie Bright, Bethany England (sub Jade Bailey 74mins), Eniola Aluko, Ji So-Yun. Subs not used: Frances Kitching, Jenna Legg, Drew Spence, Laura Rafferty.
