Leaders Durham suffer first defeat
 Women's Football WSL2 News - 20 Apr 2017
The FA WSL 2 Spring Series table has tightened considerably following the weekend's matches and just four points now separate the top eight teams.
Durham Women hold on to the leadership despite going down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 2-1 by Doncaster Rovers Belles who are now the only team still unbeaten in the division. Christie Murray gave Doncaster the lead midway through the second half and after Becky Salicki had equalised for the Wildcats just after the hour, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk headed in from a corner two minutes from time to hand her team their second straight win.
London Bees had been unable to take an opportunity to go top the day before, when they suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of fast improving Millwall Lionesses. Ella Rutherford and Charlie Devlin both scored for the second successive game to put Millwall two ahead at the break and although Ashleigh Goddard pulled one back for the Bees early in the second half, Millwall closed the game out to make it two wins on the trot for Lee Burch's side.
Everton bounced back from their first defeat of the season to run out 3-0 winners over Aston Villa and this result takes them to within a single point of the top two. The Toffees took the lead seven minutes before half time through a 20-yard strike from Simone Magill and after the break, a cross-cum-shot by Claudia Walker put them two ahead. Faye Bryson sealed the points with the final goal, to take Everton above Villa and into third.
Brighton & Hove Albion recorded their first league win as a WSL club when they beat Watford 2-1. The Seagulls took a sixth minute lead when Alessia Russo headed in a free kick from Sophie Perry and Bronwen Thomas added a second on the half hour when she drove home a shot from 15 yards. Five minutes into the second half, Merrick Will pounced on a loose back pass to reduce the deficit and Watford pressed hard for an equaliser but Brighton stood firm to notch up their first victory.
Sheffield FC staged a second half fightback to win 3-2 against Oxford Utd and keep themselves amongst the leading clutch of clubs. Oxford went ahead in the first half when Ini Umotong scored from the penalty spot after being brought down in the area but after the break, Sheffield hit back strongly to score three times in a 13-minute spell. Jenna Dear netted her first goal for the club from a free kick to level the scores and shortly afterwards, Emma Johnson put them in front for the first time. Ellie Gilliatt then curled home the third goal which proved to be decisive, despite Umotong giving Oxford late hope when scoring her second.
