White gives City the Blues
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 24 Feb 2018
 
Champions Manchester City saw their unbeaten league record come to an end as they went down to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Birmingham City.
 
The two teams had met three days earlier in the SSE Women's FA Cup, Man City winning after extra time on that occasion, but this time it was Birmingham who started strongly and they took the lead midway through the first half, Ellen White seizing on a loose back pass to score. Man City tried to fight their way back into the game but found the Birmingham defence in determined mood and with twenty minutes remaining, a swift counter attack ended with Emma Follis' low cross being swept home at the far post by White for her second, bringing an end to their opponents' 35-match unbeaten league run which stretched back to April 2015, when they lost 2-1 to Liverpool.
 
This meant that Chelsea could take over at the top of the table with a win at Yeovil Town and they duly did so, notching up a 2-0 success. They needed to be patient as the first half ended goalless but Yeovil's resistance was broken just after the hour mark when Fran Kirby, on as a substitute moments before, slotted home from a Gemma Davison cross. Eniola Aluko missed a great chance to make it two shortly afterwards but the second was not long in coming, Jonna Andersson finding the net with a deflected shot.
 
With Arsenal not in action until Friday night, Liverpool took the chance to return into the top three by beating Sunderland 3-1. The occasion was marked as Casey Stoney's last match before retirement and the Reds made sure it was a winning one. Jess Clarke gave them the lead midway through the first half, with Dominique Bruinenberg responding to ensure the scores were level at the break. Clarke headed in her second of the night to put Liverpool back in front, five minutes after the restart, and Beth England wrapped up the points by finishing off a good team move.
 
Reading FC Women chalked up their first home victory of the season when they defeated Bristol City 4-0. Kirsty Pearce opened the scoring on the half hour and two goals in a four-minute spell just after half time from Fara Williams and Brooke Chaplen put the Royals in control. Williams sealed the win with her second 25-yard strike on the night but there was some comfort for the Vixens on a disappointing night with striker Millie Farrow making her first appearance as a substitute following a serious knee injury.
