The FA WSL 2 Spring Series is approaching the end of its mini-season and Durham Women continue to lead the way after beating London Bees 3-0.
Nicki Gears headed the Wildcats into an early lead and after the break, Beth Hepple doubled their advantage and Zoe Ness crowned the win with a powerful strike from the edge of the area.
Aston Villa occupy second place on goal difference after returning from Sheffield FC with a 3-1 win under their belts. Chloe Jones scored direct from a corner to give Villa a seventh minute lead, with Hannah Dale ensuring that the scores were level going into the interval. Natasha Baptiste kept up her good form by heading Villa back in front, before Lucy Shepherd sealed the points with three minutes remaining.
Millwall Lionesses meanwhile claimed their fourth victory on the trot, an impressive 2-1 success over Doncaster Rovers Belles which keeps them one point behind leaders Durham. Courtney Sweetman-Kirk put the Belles ahead early on with a header and the prolific striker nearly added a second when her 30-yard effort crashed against the bar. Charlie Devlin also struck the woodwork at the other end from a similar range but she was not to be denied early in the second half as she levelled the scores via a neat lob. With fifteen minutes remaining, Billie Brooks completed the comeback when she scored from close range and this proved to be enough to give Millwall three hard earned points.
Everton remain handily placed just behind the top three, with games in hand, and are firmly in contention after running out 5-0 winners over Brighton & Hove Albion. The Toffees struck three times in a ten minute spell during the first half, Simone Magill giving them the lead from the penalty spot before Danielle Turner curled home a free kick and Claudia Walker added the third from close range. In the second half, Turner scored her second and Georgia Brougham completed the tally with six minutes remaining.
Watford are out of the bottom three after picking up their second win in as many matches, coming from behind to beat Oxford Utd 2-1. Ellie Noble scored from a Lauren Allison cross to give Oxford a seventh minute lead but Watford were back on level terms ten minutes later through Charlotte Kerr. Both teams had opportunities to score with Watford growing stronger as the game wore on and Kerr settled matters as she scored her second goal, flicking home a low cross from Rinsola Babajide.
