The Blue Girls never lost sight of their plan to get their first league win and fought hard the whole game.
Courtney Sweetman-Kirk’s goal came in the first half from a Faye Bryson assist. Yeovil Town argued that it was offside but it looks to be a great play. Check it out for yourself:
Sweetman-Kirk is our Player of the Match due to her influence over the game. She drew a foul in the penalty area in the second half, setting up Chloe Kelly’s penalty kick, which she converted to make the final score 2-0:
Not a bad celebration from Kelly! The forward on loan from Arsenal Women has surely impressed as she is the leading goalscorer for Everton with 3 so far this season.
Goalkeeper Lizzie Durack, who played between the sticks for Harvard University, kept a clean sheet.
