WSL highlights: Reading 3-2 Everton

Jade Moore scored twice as Reading beat Everton in an entertaining Women's Super League game.

Four goals in the first 23 minutes saw Everton twice respond to headed finishes from Moore, through Chloe Kelly and a Lucy Graham penalty.

But Reading went ahead for a third time when substitute Lisa-Marie Utland headed in a Fara Williams corner.

There was still time for more action as Kelly missed a glorious chance late on for another Everton equaliser.

All three of Reading's goals came from Williams assists, the first from a free-kick and the other two from corners. She is the only player to record at least three assists in a WSL match on more than one occasion.
