All the goals came in nine second half minutes, as Everton won 2-1 against Brighton in front of just under 5,000 at the Amex Stadium.

The result put the Toffees level on points with the eighth-placed Seagulls, narrowly trailing them on goal-difference, with both sides very likely to be safe in the WSL for another season.

Courtney Brosnan prevented an Elisabeth Terland effort for Albion from crossing the line, before Everton broke the deadlock on the hour mark.

Karen Holmgaard met a cross from Sara Holmgaard at the back post, to head past goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley.

The hosts took only three minutes to equalise, a Maisie Symonds free-kick coming back off the crossbar for Tatiana Pinto to finish emphatically.

The decisive moment would be an own-goal, as Aurora Galli picked up a loose pass from Jorelyn Carabali and Guro Bergsvand tried to clear the shot, only to turn the ball into her own net.
