Academy fightback stuns Chelsea - 11 Oct 2007 - Women's Football NewsBristol Academy opened up a lead of five points at the top of the National Division after they staged a stunning comeback from three goals down to beat Chelsea 4-3.
Chelsea got off to a roaring start and took the lead in the fifteenth minute through a deflected shot from Jess Smith. Sophie Perry quickly doubled the advantage with a long range shot and Dunia Susi added a third on 24 minutes when she stabbed in at the far post from Eniola Aluko's cross.
Stef Curtis broke through to pull a goal back for Academy on the half hour and this led to the league leaders' fightback after half time. Firstly, a shot rebounded off the unfortunate Kylie Davies and into her own net and then Claire Scanlan headed them level after Dani Ackerman's cross had been flicked on by Emma Jones. With five minutes remaining, Academy claimed the points through another Scanlan header, following up after Nicky Watts' original header had come back off the bar.
Blackburn Rovers stay in second place after drawing 1-1 away to Liverpool. Jo Edwards was on target for the home side, with Natalie Brewer replying for Blackburn.
Birmingham City gained a much needed win but were made to work hard for their 3-2 success away to Cardiff City. Bonnie Horwood opened the scoring for the Blues with Nicola Cousins equalising but in the second half, Katy Ward forced home a Dani Bird cross at the far post and Sally Lacey headed powerfully in from a corner. Kelly Isaac gave Cardiff hope by scoring a penalty but Birmingham saw the game out for their second victory of the season.
In the Northern Division, third placed Preston North End made up ground on the top two with a 4-0 win away to Manchester City. Hannah Bailey and Sarah McCrea each netted twice.
On Tuesday night, Tranmere Rovers claimed their second 1-0 success in a row, this time at the expense of Stockport County at Woodley. Stockport had most of the ball during the first period but were unable to cause too much trouble, playing plenty of nice little passes but were unable to get behind the Tranmere defence. In the second half, Stockport started to get tired and Tranmere started to get themselves into the game more. Rovers were rewarded in the 67th minute when leading scorer Rachel Rigby scored the only goal of the game, giving them a victory which takes them into a mid-table position.
Portsmouth made sure of a quick return to the top of the Southern Division with a 6-3 victory away to Brighton & Hove Albion. Zoe Nash scored twice with one apiece from Brooke Chaplen, Kirsty McGhee, Fiona McMillan and Gemma Hillier. Hayley Templeman, Tammy Waine and Amy Found all replied for the home side.
Newquay meanwhile moved into second place by winning another high scoring game, 5-3 at AFC Team Bath. Carly Bryant, Holly Miles and Cheryl Baber all found the net for the home side.
