Baggies beat Terriers, Wolves off the mark

Wolves got their first point in a 2-2 tie in the basement battle at Guiseley. Leanne Robinson took only 3 minutes to put Wanderers ahead but Vixens turned the match in their favour with a Nikki Berko double, before Laura McQuilkin levelled with a free-kick 10 minutes from time.
Late goals were exchanged in the last 5 minutes as Fylde shared the points with Derby. Camilla Newton gave County the lead, Lagan Makin equalising.
Basildon fail to halt Charlton
Previously unbeaten C & K Basildon were unable to halt Charlton Athletic’s perfect record, as the Addicks banked a sixth win to move five points clear in the Southern. Kit Graham, Charlotte Gurr, Katie Flack and Emma Sherwood got the goals, with Angela Addison getting a consolation.
Lewes came from behind to win 2-1 at Chichester City and go second. Chloe Tucker’s opener was cancelled out by Kate McIntyre and on 53 minutes Danielle Lane crossed for Rebecca Carter to it waht proved to be the winner.
Portsmouth’s 2-1 win over West Ham in an incredible finish put them into fifth position. Pompey had to wait until the 84th minute before taking the lead through Shannon Sievwright, Chenise Austin levelled with a last-minute penalty, only for Portsmouth to then be awarded a spot-kick of their own in added time, which Rachel Panting converted.
