Millwall Lionesses held on to the leadership of WSL 2 with a 3-2 win away to London Bees on Saturday afternoon.
However they needed their full powers of recovery following a disastrous start in which they found themselves two down with just six minutes on the clock, Jo Wilson and Emma Beckett both scoring for the Bees. However the game was turned on its head as Millwall battled back with goals either side of half time from Charlie Devlin and, after Ocean Rolandsen was penalised for handball in the area, Ashlee Hincks duly put the Lionesses ahead for the first time from the penalty spot and Millwall held on for three very hard earned points.
Durham Women stay within one point of leaders Millwall following their 4-0 success at Sheffield FC. The first half ended goalless, although Zoe Ness did hit the bar twice for the Wildcats and they went ahead within a minute of the restart through Nicola Worthington. Abi Cottam quickly added a second and Durham went on to net further goals from Rachel Lee and Jordan Atkinson to seal their third win in four matches.
Doncaster Rovers Belles moved up into the top three by scoring six times without reply past Aston Villa. Emma Coates was taking charge of the Belles for the final time before taking up a post with the FA and the team were determined to send her off in style. Kirsty Hanson opened the scoring after five minutes and Rebecca Rayner ensured they were two ahead at half time. Leandra Little made it three after the break, before Hanson completed her double on the hour and Jess Sigsworth rounded off the scoring with two goals in injury time.
Oxford Utd and Brighton & Hove Albion have both started the season well and this showed on Sunday as the two teams battled out an entertaining 2-2 draw at Court Place Farm. All of the goals came during the second half, Ini Umotong giving Brighton the lead against her former club with a deflected header just after the hour. Oxford hit back strongly with Chloe Chivers levelling the scores and Taome Oliver putting them ahead for the first time, but the Seagulls were to have the final say and with five minutes remaining, Sophie Perry fired home a free kick from 25 yards to earn her side a share of the spoils.
Watford picked up their first point of the season when sharing a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur. Watford had a great chance to take the lead during the first half when Rinsola Babajide hit the post with a penalty but they did go ahead eight minutes after the break through a well struck volley by Adekite Fatuga-Dada. Spurs drew level just after the hour with Lucia Leon scored from close range following a free kick and late Tottenham pressure almost led to a winner, but Watford held on in determined fashion to get themselves off the mark.
