Everton Ladies 3-1 Yeovil Town Ladies

Danielle Turner
Everton's victory saw them leapfrog Sunderland and Bristol City, who both have a game in hand

Yeovil Town Ladies scored their first league goal of the season on Wednesday - in their 15th Women's Super League match of the campaign.

It was, however, not enough for victory as Everton sealed a 3-1 win which moves them up to seventh in WSL 1.

Libby Piggott was the Yeovil scorer, drawing the visitors level after Danielle Turner's well-taken opener.

Piggott hit the bar moments later, but Mollie Green scored twice to give the hosts all three points.

The second - and Everton's third - came from the spot, Green taking over spot-kick duties late on, after Yeovil keeper Megan Walsh saved Courtney Sweetman-Kirk's first-half penalty.

Part-time outfit Yeovil remain bottom of the table - without a win this term - on two points, while Everton's victory was their fourth of the season.

Piggott's goal ended a wait of more than 1,300 minutes in the league for the Lady Glovers.

Yeovil's Annie Heatherson said: "We played with hunger, we scored our first goal of the season, and that was amazing and gave us a big morale boost.

"We hustled and worked hard, and it was really rewarding, particularly as half of us were in work this morning and then we had to get a bus a 12 o'clock and a six hour journey.

"So to come out and play like that, I think we have to give ourselves a lot more credit. Even when Everton scored their second and third goals, we never stopped.

"You can take the loss, but if you have the attitude there you can build on, and it is with this team."
