Ladies defeat Magpies in last away game of the season

Rebecca Hunt's 12th goal of the season secured the win

Newcastle United Women 0
Leeds United Ladies 1 (Hunt 59)
   
A Rebecca Hunt goal was enough to see off Newcastle United in a hard-fought victory at Druid Park. 
   
Leeds had the first chance of the game when Shelby Morris was unlucky to see her looping shot drift just wide. Stacey Buxton making her first start for Leeds then shot just inches wide.
   
Rebecca Hunt and Holly Findlay were denied by the keeper in quick succession before Hunt saw another effort miss by inches, as her lob hit the top of the crossbar.

Leeds had a golden chance to take the lead when Holly Findlay shot at the keeper when one on one. Newcastle then had the best chance of the game when Turnbull shot wide after being put clean through.
   
Leeds finally made their pressure count when Rebecca Hunt tapped in from a brilliant cross from Beth Davies.
   
Lee almost made it two shortly after, creating an effort out of a superb cross from Morris, but fired just over. Davies then fired just wide from 25 yards for the visitors, as Leeds saw out the win.
