Women's Football News
For the second week running, the top two in WSL 1 did not play in the league due to being involved in the UEFA Women's Champions League semi finals, but their chances of returning to Europe next season have been greatly enhanced.
Arsenal travelled to Birmingham City knowing that a victory would have taken them above Manchester City and into second place, but instead they are back in fourth after going down to a 3-0 defeat. Former Gunners striker Ellen White continued her magnificent form in front of goal and haunted her old club by scoring a hat-trick, taking the Blues to within two points of the opponents and keeping up their good record against the top sides in recent weeks.
Reading FC Women are now the club which occupies third place following their 2-0 success away to Sunderland. The two goals came in a three minute period just ahead of half time, Fara Williams giving Reading the lead and Rachel Furness adding the second against her former team. The Royals were reduced to ten players during the second half when Mary Earps was dismissed for handling outside the area, but Sunderland were unable to get back into the game and Reading increased their chances of at least a top half finish.
Honours were even in the Merseyside derby as Liverpool and Everton battled out a 1-1 draw at Prenton Park. Liverpool had the better of the first half with Beth England and Gemma Bonner both hitting the post and a minute after half time, they took the lead when Laura Coombs scored from close range. Everton recovered to get back on level terms when Jodie Brett fired home following a corner and both teams could have won it in injury time, Chloe Kelly going close for the Blue Girls and Niamh Charles hitting the woodwork at the other end.
