WSL and Championship Week 19

Women's Super League

Manchester United vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Leah Galton scored her 7th WSL goal of the season in this vital match for both sides. Alessia Russo fresh from another senior call up for the Lionesses and a player of the month nomination for March started the game very sharply, nearly scoring a header from a corner and setting up the opening goal with her side very much on top. After an hour of nonstop attack from the Red Devils, Leah managed to squeeze home her goal after a fine forward run from the left flank. The 3 points see them maintain their 3rd place position with Manchester City only 3 points away.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Aston Villa


U23 England international, Maz Pacheco has been a regular starter for Villa throughout the season and the 22 year old left back is having her best season yet. However it was Spurs that dominated the majority of the game but they could not find the breakthrough needed. The away side found the winner through a looping cross from Maz that was headed along into the goal. Villa move up to 9th place above Everton whilst Spurs remain in 5th place.

Birmingham City vs Everton


Emily Ramsey was back in goal for Birmingham following her period on the sidelines due to an injury. The Manchester United loanee goalkeeper was called into action on multiple occasions during the first half, making some fine saves to show her class. In the end, both sides had to settle for a point each with Ramsey keeping her side in it.
