Durham Women 0 Yeovil Town 2 (Primus 57, Wiltshire 73)
Yeovil Town extended their lead at the top of WSL 2 after two second half goals made their long journey to Durham a successful one.
Yeovil came close after just four minutes when Ellis Hillman picked the ball up after a defensive scramble from Durham, and her right foot shot was palmed away by goalkeeper Helen Alderson. At the other end, Charlotte Haynes was relatively untested until Rachel Lee unleashed a thunderous drive from 30 yards on the half hour, forcing the Yeovil stopper to turn the ball behind.
After a quiet first half, the second 45 minutes began brightly, with Yeovil's Hannah Short volleying just wide after Chloe Macek failed to clear.
On 57 minutes, Yeovil took the lead when forward Atlanta Primus beat the offside trap and tucked the ball neatly past Alderson into the bottom left corner. Ten minutes later, Primus was again played clean through with only Alderson to beat, but this time the home keeper got down to her left to turn the ball around the post.
Yeovil doubled their advantage on 73 minutes, with a long ball finding Sarah Wiltshire in the box, and she lobbed Alderson for her ninth goal of the season.
Durham's best chance came four minutes later, when Sarah McFadden made a powerful run down the right, only to shoot over the bar.
