Magic Johnson helps take Villa clear
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 18 Oct 2019
It was a good weekend all round for Aston Villa as they took over at the top of the FA Women's Championship when they ran out 4-0 winners over Charlton Athletic at The Valley on Saturday.
Melissa Johnson has been in outstanding form for Villa so far this season and she gave them the lead midway through the first half. Emma Follis doubled their advantage after the break and Johnson was to have the final say as she netted twice more to complete her hat-trick and seal a fifth straight victory for her side, taking her tally of league goals to ten in those five matches.
Villa were further boosted by the news that Durham Women, who had gone into the weekend as leaders, went down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 1-0 by Blackburn Rovers. A penalty shortly before half time from Ellie Stewart proved to be enough to give Blackburn their first ever Championship victory but they needed to defend boldly under severe Durham pressure during the second half to hold on for a result which takes them off the bottom of the table.
Durham are now back in third because in-form Sheffield Utd powered to a 5-1 win at Crystal Palace which takes them up into the top two for the first time. Jade Pennock gave the Blades a first half lead which was cancelled out five minutes later by Magda Mosengo, but Pennock quickly restored United's advantage with her second shortly afterwards. Olivia Fergusson and Veatriki Sarri put them further ahead during the second half, but Pennock rounded off the victory when she completed her hat-trick.
Three teams are level on twelve points as they chase after leaders Aston Villa, this includes London City Lionesses who came away from Coventry Utd with a 2-1 victory under their belts. Coventry got off to a great start when Helen Dermody gave them the lead after just four minutes but the Lionesses were back on level terms by the break thanks to Ylenia Priest. The game looked to be heading towards a draw but two minutes from time, Kallie Balfour, who had only just come on as a substitute, made a great impact by grabbing the winning goal and maintaining her side's 100% record in away matches this season.
Leicester City celebrated their first league win of the season in style, with a 3-0 success away to Lewes. A victory would have seen the Rookettes stay just four points off the pace but after a goalless first half, it was Leicester who took the lead five minutes after the restart through Hayley James. Lachante Paul made it two just after the hour mark and Libby Smith wrapped up the win for Leicester late on.
