London Bees 2 (Wilson 9, Watts pen 90) Millwall Lionesses 1 (Cole 53)
An injury time penalty by Nikki Watts earned London Bees their first victory of the season and kept their WSL record against Millwall Lionesses, who are yet to beat them.
There were plenty of chances from the outset at The Hive and the Millwall defence were opened wide on the counter attack after just nine minutes, allowing Jo Wilson to run through and send her shot cleverly past Sarah Quantrill.
In the second half, Watts and Fliss Gibbons both hit the woodwork before Naomi Cole's free kick from the left side skimmed across the box and into the back of the net.
But it was Watts who was to have the last word for London Bees in the second minute of injury time after Wilson was brought down in the penalty area by Quantrill.
