Fara haunts former club
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 8 Nov 2017
Reading FC Women joined Arsenal on six points at the top of Group One South in the Continental Tyres Cup after winning 2-1 when the sides met on Sunday.
The first half was goalless but former Gunners midfielder Fara Williams, who joined Reading this summer, returned to haunt her old club by scoring both goals, including a sensational strike from the centre circle for the winning goal, from the kick off after Beth Mead had equalised her earlier strike.
The other group game saw London Bees and Millwall Lionesses conjure up a thrilling match for the second week in succession, with WSL 2 leaders Millwall again coming from two goals behind to win, this time 4-3. Destiney Toussaint and Jo Wilson put the Bees two ahead inside the opening fifteen minutes, a lead they held until just before the break when Rianna Dean pulled one back for Millwall. After the interval, Ashlee Hincks levelled matters once again and Ellie Mason gave Millwall the lead for the first time on the hour. Hincks then scored what turned out to be a decisive second, despite Toussaint reducing the arrears for the home side late on.
Liverpool head the way in Group One North, but only after overcoming Durham Women on penalties after the match had finished goalless. The Reds could not break down a stubborn Durham defence, going closest when Alex Greenwood hit the bar, but they triumphed for the extra point after the shootout had reached sudden death, Caroline Weir slotting home the winner after Nicki Gears missed.
The other match in the group also went to penalties as Aston Villa and Sheffield FC finished level at 2-2. Holly Housley put Sheffield ahead on the quarter hour but Villa battled back well, Kerri Welsh equalising before the break and Ebony Salmon giving them the lead with ten minutes remaining. Sheffield were not finished though and, deep into injury time, Melissa Johnson fired home a goal which took the game into the shootout which saw all players still on the pitch having to take one, Jodie Hutton finally scoring the winning kick as Villa triumphed 11-10.
Holders Manchester City moved to the top of Group Two North with a 2-1 victory over Everton on Sunday night. Izzy Christiansen kept up her good goalscoring form by opening the scoring for City midway through the second half but Everton, who were unbeaten in the competition before this game, hit back to level the scores via a Simone Magill header. With ten minutes remaining, another former Everton player also found the net as Nikita Parris scored from close range to put her side well on the way towards qualifying.
Birmingham City sit in second place after edging out Doncaster Rovers Belles 3-2 in their clash at St Andrews. The Belles started well and took a first half lead through Christie Murray, before Freda Ayisi equalised on the stroke of half time. Charlie Wellings put the Blues ahead after the break and Rachel Williams headed in what proved to be the winning goal, despite Kirsty Hanson pulling one back for the Belles straight away.
Chelsea maintained their winning start with a dramatic 2-1 victory away to Bristol City on Saturday night. The first half was goalless but Chelsea took the lead a minute after the restart through Eniola Aluko. City battled back into the game though with Lauren Hemp hitting the bar and with five minutes remaining, Millie Turner became the first domestic goalscorer against Chelsea this season to level the scores. However as the match went into injury time, Karen Carney was adjudged to have been brought down in the area by Frankie Brown for a penalty disputed by the home side, Carney picking herself up to coolly find the corner from the spot.
Brighton & Hove Albion meanwhile opened up the chase for qualification by winning 4-1 at Tottenham Hotspur. The home side got off to a great start with Bianca Baptiste giving them the lead but Lucy Somes and Fern Whelan ensured that the Seagulls were ahead at the break, with Ini Umotong netting a second half brace to seal a result which takes Brighton above Tottenham into second place.
