The game of the day was at Brookburn Road as Mersyrail maintained their 100% start to the season with a tense 3-2 win against West Didsury & Chorlton.

The Rail took the lead through Charlotte Tyers before they were pegged back by a Rachel Mason corner to make it 1-1.  Alicia Hardacre restored the visitors lead before Chelcee Grimes made it three.  However West fought back when Elizabeth Livesey converted a penalty five minutes from time but Merseyrail hung on for three points.

Cheadle Town Stingers made it two wins from two with a victory at Wigan Athletic.  Rachel Dunlop and Liz Potier gave Cheadle a comfortable 2-0 half time lead.  Wigan pulled a goal back late on but Cheadle made it two wins from two headed into their county cup tie next week against Sale.

Tranmere Rovers are the league leaders after two rounds thanks to a 7-1 demolition of Morecambe bringing their goal tally to 12 to make it two wins from two.

AFC Darwen recorded their first win of the season as they defeated Crewe Alexandra at the Anchor Ground thanks to a Maddie McKenna winner. Darwen led after two minutes when Sadie Mitchell’s pass was turned into the Alex net by a defender.  

Crewe pulled level just after half time when Megan Parker got on the end of the free kick into the penalty area. However, it was McKenna who secured the three points for Darwen just after the hour mark with a fantastic 25yard effort.

Fleetwood Town Wrens secured their first league win of the season with a 4-0 win at home to Mossley Hill Athletic.  Georgia Payton inspired the win with a brace alongside goals from Molly Wilcocks and Rebecca Lord.

DIVISION ONE SOUTH

There was just a single game in Division One South this weekend due to FA Cup commitments but Chester more than made up for that with a 10-0 win over Altrincham.

Molly Wood put the seals in front after 6 minutes with an effort from outside the area before also doubling her sides lead. It stayed that way until a minute after half time when Emma Gray made it 3-0 and soon after it was 4-0 as Wood completed her hat-trick. 

Gray then made it 5-0 on 55 minutes and completed a hat-trick of her own with 20 minutes remaining to make it 6-0.  The two hat-trick heroes then exchanged a goal as they turned their hat-tricks into hauls with seven minutes remaining.

The two decided to let someone else in on the act as Anna Jones made it 9-0 on 85 minutes with Sarah Gill completing the scoring to make it 10-0.

DIVISION ONE NORTH

Blackpool are the league leaders in Division One North thanks to a 6-0 win at home to Accrington Stanley. The Tangerines ran out winners thanks to goals from Aimee Shaw, Molly Kelly, April Oldfield, two from Emily Cardwell and Minnie Rogers.

Chorley Development have their first win of the season thanks to a 5-0 win over Morecambe Reserves. The win, Chorley Development’s first since they joined the league, lifts them to seventh in the table.
