Liverpool off to strong start
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 26 Apr 2017
 
WSL1 News - Liverpool off to strong start - 26 Apr 2017 - Women's Football NewsLiverpool took the honours on the opening weekend of the FA WSL 1 Spring Series with a 4-1 victory over newly promoted Yeovil Town at Huish Park.
 
After the sudden withdrawal of Notts County had overshadowed matters prior to the start of the Series, there was pre-match embarrassment for Liverpool as they discovered they had forgotten their kit and were forced to wear the Lady Glovers' away strip. However, they quickly got down to business once the game started and Alex Greenwood gave them the lead from the penalty spot midway through the first half, with Gemma Bonner adding a second from close range following a corner on the stroke of half time. Katie Zelem then netted twice in a ten minute spell after the break to crown an impressive start from her side, before Sarah Wiltshire marked her comeback for Yeovil by slotting home a consolation goal from the penalty spot.
 
The Series had started on Saturday night in plush surroundings as the other newly promoted side, Bristol City were beaten 3-1 by Reading FC Women at Ashton Gate. An evenly contested first half saw both sides strike the woodwork but Reading's greater strength and experience told after the break. Rachel Furness gave the Royals the lead two minutes into the second half with a towering header from a corner and Rachel Rowe then cleverly tricked her way past Flo Allen before finding the far corner via an angled shot. Melissa Fletcher bundled home the third goal in twelve minutes to round off the scoring for Reading, with Lauren Hemp curling home a neat finish at the other end for the Vixens.
 
SSE Women's FA Cup finalists Birmingham City were held to a goalless draw by a resolute Sunderland side at Solihull. The Blues created the vast majority of chances during the game, going closest when Ellen White struck the bar after the break, whilst Lady Black Cats goalkeeper Anke Preuss pulled off a fine save to deny Sarah Mayling. Sunderland dug in, in determined fashion to pick up a hard earned point against in-form opposition.
