Doncaster Rovers Belles 1 (Roberts 20) Liverpool 3 (Weir 37,45, Harding 72)
Liverpool moved back into fourth place in the WSL 1 table after three superb strikes broke the hearts of Doncaster Rovers Belles, who are all but condemned to relegation.
Bottom-of-the-table Belles performed well in the opening half an hour and Rhiannon Roberts gave them a deserved lead with a header from Emily Simpkins' free kick after 20 minutes.
Liverpool struggled to get a foothold but things started to improve and Caroline Weir took matters into her own hands before the break. Her first goal saw the midfielder curl an effort around debutant goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse before her second from range on 45 minutes was a contender for goal of the season as it looped over the goalkeeper.
Liverpool remained in control of the match after the break but took until the 72nd minute to wrap things up when Natasha Harding scored with a curled effort from outside the area.
Doncaster Rovers Belles: Anna Moorhouse, Rhiannon Roberts, Samantha Tierney, Leandra Little, Sophie Barker, Kasia Lipka (sub Bethany O'Donnell 80mins), Emily Simpkins, Rebecca Rayner (sub Christie Murray 59mins), Katrin Omarsdottir, Marta Bakowska-Mathews, Carla Humphrey. Subs not used: Nicola Hobbs, Yasmin Mosby, Rachel Newborough.
Liverpool: Siobhan Chamberlain, Satara Murray, Gemma Bonner, Mandy Van Den Berg, Shanice Van De Sanden, Laura Coombs (sub Kate Longhurst 11mins), Katie Zelem, Sophie Ingle, Natasha Harding (sub Mollie Green 80mins), Caroline Weir, Ashley Hodson. Subs not used: Danielle Gibbons, Emma Lundh.
