Durham Women have taken over the leadership of the WSL 2 table following their 1-1 draw away to Watford on Sunday.
In a well contested game, the two goals came in a three minute spell during the second half, Emily Roberts putting the Wildcats ahead before a spectacular 30-yard strike from Rinsola Babajide earned Watford their first point of the season.
London Bees had started the day on top of the table but went down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 4-1 by Doncaster Rovers Belles who had belatedly begun their campaign. Courtney Sweetman-Kirk netted two of the goals for the Belles and she was joined on the scoresheet by Christie Murray and Emily Simpkins, with Emma Beckett grabbing a late consolation for the Bees.
Everton made it two wins out of two with a 2-1 success away to Sheffield FC. After a goalless first half, Claudia Walker opened the scoring for the Toffees with an opportunist shot on the turn but Sheffield looked to have earned themselves a share of the spoils when Sherry McCue equalised twelve minutes from time. However just two minutes later, Ellie Gilliatt put the ball into her own net when trying to clear a cross and this proved to be enough to earn Everton a victory which takes them into third place, one point off the pace.
Brighton & Hove Albion drew for the third time in as many matches when their game with Millwall Lionesses finished goalless. Both teams had chances to win the match but were unable to do so with both goalkeepers - Brighton's Emma Byrne and Sarah Quantrill of Millwall - in outstanding form.
Despite an open and entertaining encounter, there were no goals either at Oxford Utd where the home side shared the points with unbeaten Aston Villa. Oxford went closest when Ini Umotong headed against the bar whilst Villa also had opportunities to pick up their second win of the season.
The WSL 2 Spring Series will take a break for the next few weekends and the clubs will return to action in early April.
