Liverpool go four points ahead
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 11 May 2017
 
Liverpool kept up their fine start to the FA WSL 1 Spring Series by winning 2-0 away to Birmingham City and opening up a lead of four points at the top.
 
After a goalless first half, in which the Blues went closest when Ellie Brazil struck the bar, Jess Clarke gave Liverpool the lead three minutes after the restart when she headed in her first goal for the club from an Alex Greenwood cross. Freda Ayisi twice hit the woodwork as Birmingham tried to get back on level terms, whilst Katie Zelem struck the post at the other end, before Gemma Bonner wrapped up the win for the Reds with nine minutes remaining.
 
Arsenal moved up into third place as they recorded their first victory of the season, a 5-1 success at Yeovil Town. The Gunners took the lead with seven minutes on the clock when Jodie Taylor scored from the penalty spot and a Molly Clark own goal increased their advantage shortly afterwards. Taylor then netted her second as she latched onto a cross by Danielle Carter, who turned scorer herself on the half hour. Lucy Quinn reduced the arrears for the home side as she latched onto a loose back pass from Alex Scott but eight minutes into the second half, the four-goal advantage was restored when Heather O'Reilly grabbed her first goal for the club from the penalty spot.
 
Sunderland kept up their impressive start on Saturday night with a 1-0 victory over Bristol City, keeping their third successive clean sheet in the process. Lucy Staniforth hit the bar with a free kick during the first half and also brought out a good save from Caitlin Leach, whilst Claire Emslie missed a great chance for the Vixens after the break. The only goal of the game came with fourteen minutes remaining when Staniforth scored from the penalty spot after Abbey Joice had been tripped by City captain Hayley Ladd.
 
Manchester City staged a late fightback to win 3-2 at Reading FC Women and record their own first victory. Nikita Parris did give City a flying start when she put them ahead after six minutes but Reading turned the game around after half time, Jade Moore crashing home a spectacular 20-yard shot to level the scores and Lauren Bruton giving them the lead from the penalty spot. However, two long throws by Megan Campbell turned out to be lethal weapons for the reigning Champions, Parris scoring her second and Jill Scott also slotting home from close range in quick succession to finally settle the match in their favour.
