International commitents meant that the WSL 2 programme was reduced to three matches over the weekend in the FA WSL2 Spring Series but London Bees are keeping up the early pace.
This began on Saturday afternoon, when early table toppers London Bees defeated Oxford Utd 3-1 to open up a lead of four points. All of the Bees' hard work was done in the first half, Hanna Lalani drilling home the opening goal with six minutes on the clock and Emma Beckett added a quick second via a brave header from a free kick. Ashleigh Goddard then kept up her excellent start to the campaign by scoring her third goal in successive matches, firing home a shot from 25 yards. Oxford grabbed a late consolation through a well taken effort on the turn by Ini Umotong but they could not prevent a second straight win from London Bees.
On Sunday, Durham Women took the opportunity to close the gap on London Bees to a single point when they won 1-0 against Sheffield FC. The only goal of the game came shortly before the hour mark, when a cross from Zoe Ness was headed in by Natalie Gutteridge.
Aston Villa played host to Millwall Lionesses and the resulting 1-1 draw means that Villa are still unbeaten, whilst Millwall registered their first point after two narrow defeats. Villa got off to a flying start when Elisha N'Dow gave them the lead from close range in the opening minute but Millwall battled back after the break and with nine minutes remaining, substitute Ellie Mason scored her first goal for the club to earn them a share of the spoils.
