The win sees Lewes and Cross go up to 7th in the Championship.

Watford vs Blackburn Rovers Ladies
Last time, these two teams faced off, Annabel Blanchard scored a fine free kick to win them the game, this time, she nearly assisted the opening goal after driving through the midfield before playing a lovely through ball, but her striker couldn’t put the chance away. She came very close in the second half from scoring after a wonderful turn and shot that ended up hitting the crossbar. Throughout the game, Blanchard was heavily involved in the Rovers dominance, but it ended up being a goalless draw with the team sharing the points.
