REPORT | ARSENAL WOMEN 2-1 EVERTON WOMEN


Everton Women’s return to league action ended in defeat as Arsenal were victorious at Meadow Park with a 2-1 win. Brian Sorensen’s team put on a display full of character, matching one of the greatest sides in Women’s football and were unlucky to come away without a point.

Arsenal were the first to get things underway, opening the scoring in the 9th minute with a goal from Australian International Caitlin Foord. Everton were quick to destroy their momentum, Katja Snoeijs equalised after latching on to a fantastic through ball from Danish star, Karoline Olesen. The goal marks the Dutch forwards third in as little as two games.

Nevertheless, the Blue’s conquest to get a win over a top four side was quickly dashed, as Beth Mead restored her team’s advantage by nodding in Lia Walti’s cross in first-half stoppage time.

Going into the second half, the hosts were still in control of the game, but they ran into a youthful, disciplined, and resolute Everton defence, who prevented them from increasing their advantage further.

A disappointing result overall as the Toffee’s gave such a spirited performance and deserved so much more from the game.

Everton Women are back in WSL action today, facing Leicester City at Walton Hall Park. Make sure to get a ticket, kick off is at 12.30pm.
