Courtney Nevin provided two assists and Remy Siemsen laid off one assist as Leicester City routed Liverpool 4-0, while Sam Kerr’s UEFA Champions League campaign was ended.
Siemsen kept the ball alive from a short corner before passing to Josephine Green whose deflected strike went in for the opener as Leicester beat Liverpool in the Women’s Super League.
With Leicester up 2-0 in the second half, Nevin sent in a corner that was headed home by Ashleigh Plumptre.
Nevin showed poise to get on her left foot and whip in a cross for Missy Goodwin to head in for the fourth goal in injury time. The win was a major boost for Leicester’s bid to avoid relegation.
Lydia Williams’ Brighton & Hove Albion are in that relegation scrap and the Matildas keeper was in goal for the full game as the Seagulls drew 2-2 at Tottenham on Saturday.
Williams might have done better to claim a corner for Spurs’ first goal, while she elected not to come off her line for Beth England’s 78th-minute equalizer when in one-on-one on goal.
Hayley Raso was a 66th minute substitute and Mary Fowler came on in the 76th minute as Manchester City won 4-1 over Reading on Sunday.
Sam Kerr and Chelsea’s Women’s UEFA Champions League campaign came to an end on Friday night after a 1-1 draw at Barcelona concluded a 2-1 aggregate loss in the semi-final.
Kerr put in a full shift and played a key part in Chelsea’s goal, with a smart run in behind the defence before Guro Reiten coolly converted from the rebound.
Jacynta Galabadaarachchi was a 69th minute substitute for Celtic in their 3-0 win over Hibernian in the Scottish Women’s Premier League, keeping them within two points of leaders Glasgow City.
