Just three games survived the weather in the FA WSL on its return to league matches following the group stages of the Continental Tyres Cup.
The victims of the weather included the WSL 1 top of the table clash between Chelsea and Manchester City and only one top flight game did go ahead, at Everton where the home side ran out 5-1 winners over Sunderland. Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah gave Everton the lead nine minutes before the break and Courtney Sweetman-Kirk added a second just ahead of half time. Sweetman-Kirk netted her second, early in the second half, with Danielle Turner netting a brace to complete Everton's second league win in a row, despite Bridget Galloway grabbing a late consolation for Sunderland.
With their nearest rivals not playing, Doncaster Rovers Belles defeated Sheffield FC 3-2 to open up a lead of four points at the top of WSL 2. The Belles got off to a roaring start with Kirsty Hanson and Jess Sigsworth putting them two up inside the opening twenty minutes but Sheffield got themselves back into the game after the break with Sophie Jones reducing the arrears. However an own goal by Jones restored Doncaster's two-goal advantage and the midfielder also had a penalty saved by Bethan Davies as Sheffield tried to get back into the game. Emma Johnson did pull one back in injury time but the Belles saw the game out to maintain their unbeaten start and steal a march on the teams around them.
The game on Saturday between London Bees and Oxford Utd was unaffected and the home side were to celebrate a 2-1 result which gave them their first league victory of the season. Paula Howells got the Bees off to the best possible start by giving them a fourth minute lead from a free kick but Oxford were back on terms by the midpoint of the first half, thanks to a low driven shot from Kayleigh Hines. The game looked to be heading for a draw which chances at both ends until the last minute, when Destiney Toussaint's cool finish against her former club settled matters in the Bees' favour.
