Arsenal hit seven in Cup opener
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 14 Oct 2017
 
Arsenal got their Continental Tyres Cup campaign off to a winning start when they scored seven times without reply past London Bees.
 
The Gunners have a fantastic record in the competition, winning it four times and only failing to reach the Final on one occasion, and they served notice of another strong campaign as Emma Mitchell and Beth Mead each scored twice, the latter with two penalties, while Lisa Evans, Jodie Taylor and Louise Quinn also got on the scoresheet.
 
The other match in Group C saw Watford win 1-0 against WSL 2 leaders Millwall Lionesses. The Hornets turned league form on its head to record their first win of the season, settling matters on 72 minutes through a close range volley by Adekite Fatuga-Dada from Anneka Nuttall's free kick.
 
A change in the format this year means that matches which finish level after 90 minutes will go a penalty shootout, with two points rather than three going to the winners and one to the beaten side. Therefore it was Durham Women and Sunderland who made history in this respect as they fought out a goalless draw in normal time, with the Lady Black Cats taking the honours 3-2 on penalties.
 
Liverpool sit on top of Group A following their 6-0 victory over Sheffield FC. Caroline Weir netted twice inside the opening half hour to give the Reds a two-goal advantage and an Ellie Gilliatt own goal extended their lead after the break. Sophie Ingle, Ali Johnson and Beth England also got on the scoresheet to crown the victory for Liverpool.
 
Last time's runners-up Birmingham City have started off well this time around, defeating Oxford Utd 4-0. The U's started the game well but were undone just before half time by Freda Ayisi and Lucy Quinn scored a second early in the second half. Oxford's task was made even harder when Hannah Short was red carded for bringing down Rachel Williams when through on goal and Birmingham went on to add further goals late on through Hayley Ladd and Charlie Wellings.
 
Everton meanwhile came back from Doncaster Rovers Belles with a 3-0 win under their belts. Chloe Kelly gave them the lead after six minutes and an own goal by Leandra Little midway through the first half put them in control. Martha Munsterman rounded off the victory for the Toffees when she netted the third goal late on.
 
There were success for WSL 2 in the first round of the games and both came in Group D, Brighton & Hove Albion winning their first ever game in the competition, 4-2 against Yeovil Town. Fliss Gibbons put the Seagulls in front just before the half hour and strikes in quick succession from Ini Umotong and Kate Natkiel put them three ahead at the interval. Natkiel completed a great day for her side when she scored her second with twenty minutes remaining and although Paige Sawyer and Kayleigh Green grabbed injury time goals for the Lady Glovers, it was too little too late for them.
 
The other Continental Tyres Cup debutants, Tottenham Hotspur, also made an instant impact with victory over a WSL 1 side, beating Bristol City 2-0. Tottenham went into the game with two successive league wins under their belts and they took the lead shortly before the break through Lauren Pickett. Bianca Baptiste wrapped up the win when she scored the second goal, midway through the second half.
