Enfield came from behind to run out 5-1 winners at Stevenage and go top of the table with seven points from three games.

Kristi Burling headed home an Erin Pope corner but Enfield had turned the game round by the break, equalising through Nuala McKevitt via a flag-kick and Beth Lumsden

Two minutes after the break and Lumsden got her second, the points then made quite secure with two penalties and a red card for hosts’ substitute Nicole Emmings.
