Women’s Super League Game Week 8 Round Up

WSL logo

ALL twelve teams of The Women’s Super League played their eight games this weekend and like always the dominant displays are making the outcome of the league a little more likely to predict.

Manchester United were all over Bristol City, dominating possession, shots on target and passes but they struggled to find a way to put a goal past The Robins until Ella Toone stepped up in the second 45.

The England international laid on both the goals for United, assisting Hinata Miyazawa and fellow England international Nikita Parris to the win.

The Red Devils are now stepping closer to the Champions League next season as they sit in fourth, one point behind fellow Manchester rivals.

Once again it was all about Chelsea’s wonder kid when they went up against Leicester City at Kingsmeadow as they beat the Foxes 5-2.

Lauren James started in the left wing position, opening the scoring for The Blues in the second minute and earned herself a brace in the 58th.

Austrialian striker, Sam Kerr grabbed a goal as well as 20 year old Aggie Beever – Jones making it five goals in six appearances.

Liverpool solidified Brighton and Hove Albion’s possible relegation danger as they comfortably cruised past the South Coast Side.

The Reds had four different goal scorers with centre back Gemma Bonner getting in on the action, scoring off a corner.

Despite an unsteady season last year, Liverpool are proving themselves to be a stronger team instead of one of the weaker sides.

It was all about Arsenal’s England internationals, Beth Mead and Alessia Russo as they hosted West Ham at Meadow Park.

Frida Maanum opened the scoring for the Gunners and from there the North London Side were ruthless in all areas of the pitch.

Mead sealed the win earning herself a brace, scoring her first goal since returning from an ACL injury with Russo assisting the winger’s second whilst being all over their London opposition.

Despite getting back to winning ways for two games, Aston Villa were caught slacking and handing over all three points to Everton.

Rachel Daly equalised for Villa after an own goal by her fellow team mate Anna Patten in the 54th minute of the game.

The game looked even until a foul on Heather Payne by Aston Villa’s Kirsty Hanson in which Nathalie Bjorn stepped up to make it 2-1 to Everton.

Manchester City ran a riot around their London opposition, Tottenham Hotspur with the scoreline ending up to be 7-0.

Khadija Shaw once again proved her talent netting a hat trick in only 15 minutes throughout the first half.

Lauren Hemp, Jill Roord and Laura Coombs also got in on the scoring, almost just for fun and now City sit third in the table.

Come back on the 10th December for a round up of Game Week Nine after international break.
