Leeds United Ladies 1 (Findlay 10)
Chester Le Street Ladies 3 (Elson 54, 75, Harvey 65)
    
It was a game of two halves for Leeds United Ladies, as Chester Le Street came from behind to claim all three points at Thorp Arch. 
Leeds were straight on the attack from the outset, with Emily Cassidy firing just wide from a clever corner routine.
   
It took just 10 minutes before the Whites opened the scoring, when Holly Findlay jumped on confusion between the visitor's defence, tapping home into an empty net.
   
Thompson-Clark then curled a shot just wide for Chester Le Street, before Rebecca Hunt curled an effort around the post.

Leeds started the second half well with Rebecca Jeffels looping cross dropping just wide.
   
Georgia Wattam was then called upon to make a last-ditch save to deny Lawson, but could do nothing about the leveller from Elson.
   
With the scores level, the visitors started to increase the pressure on the Whites, resulting in two goals in ten minutes. Harvey first popped up with a strike that gave them the lead, before Elson tapped in number three.
With 15 minutes left of the game, Leeds battled on looking to get back into the game, going close through Parkin, Findlay and Hunt, but the visitors hung on to claim all three points.
