Arsenal and Chelsea open up race
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 30 May 2017
 
Sunday's results have set up an interesting finish to the FA WSL 1 Spring Series and with two rounds of fixtures still to play, just two points cover the top four teams.
 
Liverpool still hold on to top spot but their hopes of staying there received a huge blow as they were beaten 7-0 by Chelsea. The home side were coming off the back of their first defeat a few days earlier and were playing their final match at Wheatsheaf Park, and got off to a great start when Gilly Flaherty headed them in front after two minutes. Fran Kirby and Ji So-Yun both scored in quick succession just before half time and Maren Mjelde added a fourth, three minutes after the restart. Karen Carney and Erin Cuthbert also got on the scoresheet before Drew Spence rounded off the scoring with six minutes remaining.
 
The result has taken Chelsea back into second place, above Manchester City who suffered their first WSL defeat in over two years when they were beaten 1-0 by Arsenal at the Academy Stadium. The Gunners - who are now the last remaining team with an unbeaten record - fielded two teenagers in the centre of defence in Anna Patten and Lotte Wubben-Moy and both gave impressive performances to help keep the reigning Champions at bay. The only goal of the game came with fifteen minutes remaining, when Jordan Nobbs fired home a free kick from long range.
 
Reading FC Women and Birmingham City's mid-table ended with honours even as the sides battled out a 1-1 draw. For the second week running, Birmingham took a very early lead, this time with only 19 seconds on the clock as Charlie Wellings swept home a cross from Abbey Leigh Stringer. Things got even worse for Reading on the stroke of half time when Jo Potter was sent off against her former club but Reading rallied after the break, getting themselves back on level terms when Lauren Bruton converted from the penalty spot following a foul on Kirsty Linnett in the area.
 
Sunderland claimed their second victory of the season when they won 2-1 away to Yeovil Town, whose run of defeats continues. The visitors took the lead in the third minute when Lucy Staniforth scored direct from a corner and the visitors had the better of matters during the first half. Yeovil came more into the game after the break, although there were few chances until fourteen minutes from time, when Lucy Quinn was tripped in the penalty area by Steph Bannon and a penalty was awarded. Quinn picked herself up but saw her kick saved by Hilde Gunn Olsen, however Angharad James was on hand to fire home the rebound. Yeovil were caught cold a minute later though as the lively Abbey Joice's shot was blocked by Megan Walsh, Beverly Leon following up to slot home the loose ball for the winning goal.
