Durham Women 1 (Hepple 35) Everton 3 (George 10, Walker 25, Davies 90)
Everton got their WSL 2 promotion challenge back on track with an impressive victory away to Durham Women, whose own hopes of going up now appear to be over.
Everton played some good football at New Ferens Park but it was their aerial prowess which proved vital. They went in front in the eighth minute when Michelle Hinnigan's drive from the edge of the box hammered off the bar with the alert Gabby George nodding the rebound wide of Helen Alderson's dive.
The advantage was doubled in the 26th minute when Claudia Walker's textbook header from Krystle Johnston's ball nestled in the net.
Everton could have had the points in the bag by half time, but Hinnigan saw Alderson make a diving save from a header and then went inches wide with a shot. Nine minutes from half time, Durham were back in it as Beth Hepple lobbed Kirstie Levell from 30 yards.
Everton had the best openings of the second half when Walker sent Johnston clear only for the ex-Sunderland winger to shoot wide, while Alderson made a superb low save from an Ellie Stewart header.
The Toffees had the last say deep in stoppage time when Lauren Davies netted a beauty from distance just seconds after coming on.
Durham Women: Helen Alderson, Ellie Christon, Chloe Macek (sub Annabel Johnson 80mins), Sarah McFadden, Sarah Wilson, Rebecca Salicki, Beth Hepple, Rachel Lee (sub Nicola Gibson 75mins), Natalie Gutteridge (sub Tyler Dodds 80mins), Emily Roberts, Jordan Atkinson.
Everton: Kirstie Levell, Vicky Jones, Danielle Turner, Millie Turner (sub Lauren Davies 89mins), Ellie Stewart, Gabby George, Rosella Ayane (sub Emily Hollinshead 87mins), Michelle Hinnigan, Krystle Johnston, Claudia Walker, Kelly Jones.
