Despite high spirits after a fantastic 1-0 win over West Ham, Everton Ladies came up short on Sunday, losing 1-0 to Bristol.


Hannah Cain scored the winning goal against West Ham after a long spell out on injury and started on the bench against Bristol. Abbey Stringer and Siri Worm were in the starting lineup, with the newest player, Emme Brownlie, getting another start.

According to BBC Sport, possession was about even and Everton actually had way more shots (13 compared to 5), but Bristol still got the result. There were about 4 attempts from the Toffees during this sequence alone:

The lone goal from Bristol’s Lucy Graham is quite something to see and it was from their first attempt no less:
