The three leading sides in the FA WSL 2 Spring Series have moved further away from the others following victories in their matches over the weekend.
On Saturday evening, London Bees returned to the top of the table after winning 2-1 against Sheffield FC. Hannah Cain and Hannah Dale both struck the bar for Sheffield during the first half and the game seemed to be heading towards a goalless draw until eight minutes from time, when Jo Wilson gave London Bees the lead. Wilson then drilled in a second goal to clinch the points for her side, despite Ellie Gilliatt pulling one back during injury time.
London Bees' tenure was a brief one though as Durham Women defeated Oxford Utd 2-1 to regain the leadership on goal difference. Ellie Noble put Oxford in front two minutes into the second half but the Wildcats were quickly back on level terms, Beth Hepple scoring from close range. Evie Gane almost restored Oxford's lead when her shot was cleared off the line, before late Durham pressure brought reward when with three minutes remaining, Zoe Ness grabbed the winner for her side when she converted a cross from Emily Roberts.
Aston Villa kept up their good start to the campaign with a 3-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion, which leaves them two points behind the leading duo. Both teams went into the game sporting an unbeaten record and after chances at both ends early on, it was Villa who opened the scoring through Kerri Welsh just after the half hour, with Maddy Cusack doubling their lead four minutes later. The Seagulls halved the deficit midway through the second half with a well taken goal from Bronwen Thomas but Villa were not to be denied and Natasha Baptiste clinched the points three minutes from time.
Millwall Lionesses meanwhile recorded their first win of the season, a fine 2-1 success against previously unbeaten Everton. Ella Rutherford gave Millwall a first half lead with a strike from 25 yards and seven minutes later, Everton were back on terms when Claudia Walker slotted home from the penalty spot following a foul on Emily Hollinshead. In the second half, Charlie Devlin marked her debut after joining on loan from Arsenal by restoring her side's lead when scoring from a cross by Leanne Cowan and Millwall held on for the points with goalkeeper Sarah Quantrill in excellent form.
