In the Women's Premier League, Barry Town made the trip to Champion Hill and took their first points with a 1-0 victory over Millwall Lionesses - despite both sides having a player sent off for fighting.

Barry's Fran Sanders and Millwall's Leanne Champ were dismissed with only six minutes of the match remaining but held their advantage. Centre-forward Trudy Williams hit the winner for Barry eight minutes after the break.

The England internationals Angela Banks and Claire Wheatley helped Arsenal to their second successive win in the Premier League as the visitors beat Everton 2-1 at Marine FC.
