Report: Everton Ladies 3-1 Bristol City Women

Bristol City Women exit the SSE Women’s FA Cup after defeat to Everton Ladies.

City Women got off to an explosive start at the Marine Travel Arena, dominating possession from the off and taking the lead through Chloe Arthur on seven minutes.

The Scottish international midfielder latched on to a fantastic cross from Loren Dykes from the right and bundled the ball into the net.

The Vixens almost doubled their lead on 11 minutes, with Lauren Hemp getting in on the act, but her volley was inches over Kirstie Levell's bar.

A minute later, Angharad James almost levelled for the hosts, but Aimee Watson was on hand to save well.

On the quarter of an hour mark, Julie Biesmans fired from range but Levell once again saved well to deny the Vixens a second goal.

Charlie Estcourt, who was lively all day, shot inches wide of the post on the half-hour mark, bursting in from the right and getting a shot off.

Approaching half-time, City Women almost doubled their lead once again. Hemp burst down the right and crossed into captain Millie Turner, but her effort was just over the bar.

Bristol City Women went in at the break 1-0 to the good, but would have felt they could have put the game to bed in the first-half with numerous chances.

On 50 minutes, Hemp's neat cheap had Levell all-ends-up but it was inches over. From the goal-kick, Everton equalised through Olivia Chance. The winger burst down the right flank, her mis-placed cross was fired into the corner of Watson's net.

Five minutes later, Everton took the lead through Georgia Brougham. Chloe Kelly's corner found Brougham who nodded in at the far post.

After being somewhat stunned by Everton's resurgence, City Women nearly equalised on the hour mark through Estcourt. The Welsh international's effort was excellently saved by Levell.

Everton sealed the game on 83 minutes with Chance's second goal. Kelly was once again the provider, and the winger tucked away the cross at the far post.

The game ended 3-1, after the Vixens initially took the lead through Chloe Arthur.

Bristol City Women: Watson, Dykes, Brown, Matthews, Kerkdijk, Arthur, Fergusson, Hemp, Estcourt, Biesmans, Turner. Subs not used: Humphrey, Allen, Daniels, Palmer, E Wilson.

City Women welcome Sunderland next Saturday, February 10th (5.30pm kick-off) at Stoke Gifford Stadium. Tickets are available here.
