Durham Women have opened up a lead of two points at the top of the FA WSL 2 Spring Series following their 1-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion.
Wildcats captain Sarah Wilson headed in the only goal in the eighteenth minute from a Beth Hepple corner, to settle a tightly contested match of few chances.
Millwall Lionesses continue to bound up the table and are in second place after recording their third successive victory, 2-0 against Oxford Utd. Ella Rutherford kept up her fine scoring form by giving Millwall the lead just after the half hour, firing home from Charlie Devlin's pass. The Lionesses wrapped up the win with ten minutes remaining when Bonnie Horwood scored from the penalty spot, following a foul on Devlin in the area.
Aston Villa meanwhile bounced back from their first defeat of the season to beat London Bees 3-2 and they complete the top three. In a thrilling, end-to-end contest, Villa took the lead during the first half through Kerri Welsh and Tash Baptiste added a second from close range. The Bees hit back through a long range strike from Lucy Loomes but Villa's response was immediate and Mollie Rouse restored their two-goal advantage. Early in the second half, Jo Wilson brought the Bees back into the game as she reduced the arrears and they pressed hard for an equaliser with Emma Beckett and Loomes both striking the woodwork, but Villa held on for their third victory of the campaign.
Doncaster Rovers Belles preserved the only remaining unbeaten record in the division by sharing a 3-3 draw with Everton in an enthralling match at the Keepmoat Stadium. Everton got off to a flying start with Georgia Brougham giving them a third minute lead and Claudia Walker quickly adding a second. Courtney Sweetman-Kirk then levelled the scores by finding the net either side of half time, the second from the penalty spot. Belles captain Leandra Little looked to have completed the comeback when she headed her side in front for the first time with fifteen minutes remaining, but Everton ensured they went home with a share of the spoils after Olivia Chance fired home the equaliser late on.
Watford continued their improvement by claiming their first victory of the season, a 2-0 result against Sheffield FC which lifts them off the bottom of the table. Merrick Will scored for the second successive week, a 25-yard strike with four minutes on the clock, and there were opportunities at both ends of the pitch before Rinsola Babajide sealed the win for Keith Boanas's side deep into injury time.
