Yeovil Town 1 (Wiltshire 75) Millwall Lionesses 1 (Gibbons 43)
Yeovil Town's first home match of the season ended with honours even as they pegged back a Millwall Lionesses side whose unbeaten start continues.
In an evenly contested opening 45 minutes, it was the hosts who looked the more likely to open the scoring with a succession of dangerous corners. But it was the Lionesses who took the lead into half time after capitalising on a goalkeeping error from Charlotte Haynes, Fliss Gibbons looping a header home.
After the break, Yeovil pushed in search of an equaliser and came close just before the hour mark when both Nicola Cousins and Sarah Wiltshire were denied by the woodwork. However Yeovil and Wiltshire weren't to be denied for long as the Welsh international emphatically fired home a Helen Bleazard cross from just inside the area.
Both sides came close to stealing victory at the death as first Yeovil's Ann Marie Heatherson had a goal ruled out for offside, before Lucy Loomes' effort was saved well by Haynes at the other end.
