Liverpool continued their good start to the FA WSL 1 Spring Series and picked up their second straight win with a 4-2 success over Reading FC Women.
The game got off to a frantic start with three goals inside the first seven minutes, Natasha Harding putting Liverpool ahead before Reading hit back quickly with strikes from Brooke Chaplen and Melissa Fletcher. Harding netted her second to level the scores once again and just after the half hour, the Reds were back in front when Caroline Weir converted a cross from Alex Greenwood. Laura Coombs made it four within five minutes of the restart and there was to be no more scoring from that point, meaning that Liverpool have a lead of three points in the fledgling table.
Chelsea started their fixtures a week late but appear to be already making up for lost time as they scored six times without reply past Yeovil Town. Chelsea started strongly but Yeovil managed to hold out until just before half time, when Ji So-Yun opened the scoring from a free kick, and the South Korean then curled home a second in injury time. After the break, Drew Spence and Erin Cuthbert added further goals before Crystal Dunn and Ramona Bachmann rounded off the scoring. To make matters worse for Yeovil, they also lost highly rated goalkeeper Charlotte Haynes with a broken hand late on.
Sunderland meanwhile picked up their second point with another shut out, this time holding Arsenal to a goalless draw. Lady Black Cats goalkeeper Anke Preuss made a number of good saves to keep out efforts from Jordan Nobbs, Danielle van de Donk and Chloe Kelly but at the other end, Sari Van Veenendaal was also called into action as she made two fine stops to deny Dominique Bruinenberg.
