Yeovil Town 2 (Cousins 73, Heatherson 90) Oxford Utd 0
Two goals in the last seventeen minutes handed Yeovil their second win in three matches after having been frustrated by a dogged Oxford side all match.
Oxford's Ella Franklin-Fraiture had the first chance on 19 minutes when she latched on to Ini Umotong's pass, but keeper Charlotte Haynes dashed off her line to clear the danger.
Sarah Wiltshire went close for the hosts in the 35th minute, as she struck the post with a strike from distance. Franklin-Fraiture then cleared the crossbar on 38 minutes, as both sides pressed in search of an opener.
Inside the opening minute of the second half, Yeovil forced a corner that the Oxford defence only managed to clear as far as Ellis Hillman, who saw her shot parried away by keeper Hannah Cox. In the 53rd minute, Natasha Knapman looked well placed to break the deadlock for Yeovil, after being set up by Helen Bleazard, but she was denied by the reflexes of Cox.
The home side finally broke through a resilient Oxford back line on 73 minutes, as Nicola Cousins powered home a corner from Wiltshire to score her second goal of the season.
Substitute Nadia Lawrence then hit the post for Yeovil with ten minutes to go before Ann Marie Heatherson added a second deep in injury time, when she turned home a cross from Wiltshire.
