Man City and Arsenal keep up title pursuit
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 16 Mar 2019
 
The FA WSL returned to action following the international break in midweek, and the main title challengers all hit the ground running once again with important victories.
 
Manchester City continue to set the pace at the top but needed to survive a late scare when winning a thrilling match 4-3 away to Reading FC Women. Brooke Chaplen gave Reading an early lead but City's response was swift, Nikita Parris levelling the scores shortly afterwards and the England striker added a quickfire double to complete a first half hat-trick. City looked to be out of sight after the break when Demi Stokes exchanged passes with Parris before scoring but Reading grabbed a lifeline on the hour when Fara Williams netted from the penalty spot, then Royals captain Kirsty Pearce gave her side hope of snatching a point late on but City held their nerve to bank three more valuable points.
 
This meant that Arsenal needed to beat Bristol City on Thursday night to bring the gap back to two points and the Gunners duly delivered, running out 4-0 winners. Vivianne Miedema gave them an early lead and the Dutch striker added a second on the hour. Katie McCabe made it three before Miedema made the fastest of returns to the top of the scoring charts by scoring her hat-trick goal with fifteen minutes remaining.
 
With the top two both winning, Chelsea's title hopes are dwindling as they are running out of games, despite a 4-0 victory away to Liverpool. Fran Kirby scored twice inside the opening quarter of the game, the second coming from the penalty spot, and she completed her hat-trick ten minutes into the second half. Angelina Engman rounded off the victory for Chelsea when she headed in the fourth goal in injury time.
 
Everton gave their survival hopes a huge shot in the arm with a 1-0 win at West Ham Utd. A well contested game saw both teams have chances, with Everton going closest through a Taylor Hinds shot which crashed against the bar, but with two minutes remaining, Everton took three precious points when substitute Hannah Cain broke through to slot the winning goal past Anna Moorhouse.
 
Yeovil Town ended their losing run with a 1-1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion but Everton's victory means that they are now five points adrift. Brighton had the better of the first half and went ahead when Victoria Williams headed in from a corner. The Seagulls were unable to add to their lead though and Yeovil struck back after the break to equalise through Ellie Mason. Brighton almost won it in injury time when Ini Umotong hit the post but the point means they are all but safe from relegation, if not mathematically, whilst Yeovil require at least two wins from their final five games.
