Doncaster Rovers Belles have made a storming start in WSL 2 with a 4-1 opening day win away to London Bees.
Rebecca Rayner and Kirsty Hanson ensured that the Belles led by two goals at the break and they went on to crown the win with further strikes from Christie Murray and Rayner, before Tricia Gould netted a late consolation for the Bees.
Millwall Lionesses enjoyed a good Spring Series and they have started well in the new season, coming from behind to beat Watford 3-1. Simona Petkova gave Watford the lead with five minutes on the clock but Millwall were back on terms midway through the half through a Billie Brooks header, then Leanne Cowan put them in front for the first time before the interval. Ella Rutherford wrapped up the win for Millwall during the second half and they nearly added a fourth late on when Rianna Dean's penalty was saved by Jo Fletcher.
Tottenham Hotspur's debut in the FA WSL ended in a narrow 2-1 defeat away to Durham Women. All of the goals came in a frantic five minute spell leading up to half time, Beth Hepple giving Durham the lead and after Spurs equalised right away through Bianca Baptiste, Nicki Gears scored what proved to be a decisive second on the day for the Wildcats.
Brighton & Hove Albion commenced their second season in the league with a 1-0 success at Aston Villa. Watched by new manager Hope Powell, who takes charge this week, Ini Umotong settled matters in the Seagulls' favour with the only goal of the game, scored in first half injury time.
Oxford Utd were also 1-0 winners against Sheffield FC in their first home match at their new home ground at Court Place Farm. The only goal of the game came on the hour, and went the way of Oxford's new look side as a Danielle Carlton free kick went in off the unfortunate Ellie Gilliatt.
