Leeds United Women 2 Findlay 46, Hannon 49
Durham Cestria 0
Leeds United Women bounced back from defeat at Brighouse last week, as they sealed a convincing 2-0 win at home to Durham Cestria in Nostell.
The game started at a fast pace, when Leeds had the first half chance as Rebecca Hunt hooked just wide after two minutes.
Leeds kept the pressure up on Durham, and Holly Findlay headed just wide after a brilliant cross from Millie Kenyon.
Kenyon herself then went close, firing just over from an acute angle, before Erin Nelson then fired wide for the visitors.
Leeds captain Bridie Hannon was called upon to make a brilliant challenge to deny Nelson as the sides went into the break scoreless.

Leeds made the perfect start to the second period when Holly Findlay headed home Olivia Smart's corner, just seconds after the break.
The Whites then doubled their lead almost immediately, and this time it was Hannon who fired in after a scramble inside the box following another corner.
Durham were still causing Leeds problems as the half progressed, with Ayre firing just over and Richardson testing Johnson from long range.
Laura Robson tried her luck for the visitors but her long range effort dipped just over.
As the game headed into stoppage time, Chloe Ryan hit the post and Lauren Robson had her header held by Johnson as Leeds returned to winning ways.
