The second round of fixtures in the FA WSL 2 Spring Series was restricted to three matches but once again, they produced results which suggests that the league will be a very closely contested one.
The table is led by London Bees who are on four points following their 3-2 win away to Watford. However it looked as though the home side would be on their way to taking the points when Rinsola Babajide put them ahead from the penalty spot during the first half and Vicky Neal added a second after the break. The Bees responded immediately through a spectacular goal from Emma Beckett and Ashleigh Goddard then levelled the scores with her second goal in as many matches. With six minutes remaining, Jo Wilson completed the comeback to give her side a first victory and condemn the Golden Girls to a second narrow defeat (see match report).
Sheffield FC's start to the season had been delayed by a postponement but they made up for lost time by winning their first match, 2-1 away to Millwall Lionesses. Hannah Cain gave the Yorkshire side a ninth minute lead via a cross-cum-shot and Sophie Jones added the second ahead of half time, when her shot was adjudged to have crossed the line after hitting the underside of the bar. Millwall pulled one back through a well taken goal from Ashlee Hincks and in the second half, the home side laid siege to the Sheffield goal in search of an equaliser, but Sheffield held on for three hard earned points.
Brighton & Hove Albion meanwhile battled out a 1-1 draw with Oxford Utd at Lancing. Oxford started the game well but it was the Seagulls who took the lead through Bronwen Thomas just after the half hour mark. Brighton held their advantage until midway through the second half when 16-year-old Evie Gane lobbed home the equaliser to hand the U's their first point of the season.
