Logarzo nets, Manchester derby draw in WSL

·2-min read

Bristol City have recorded their first point of the FA Women's Super League season, with Australia's Chloe Logarzo playing a major role.

City had lost all previous five league matches and were bottom of the table going in to the home game at Twerton Park on Saturday.

But thanks to the Matildas midfielder's 37th-minute penalty and an added-time goal from Ebony Salmon secured the Vixens a 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

City remain 12th, two points and one place behind Spurs, for whom another Aussie in Alanna Kennedy played a full game and had a late header go just wide for a dramatic win.

In the Manchester derby, Kirsty Hanson struck a late equaliser for United as they hit back from 2-0 down to grab a draw with their cross-city rivals City.

Substitute Hanson and American World Cup winner Tobin Heath both scored to keep the WSL leaders United unbeaten this season as they clinched a 2-2 draw.

United's point left them two clear of Arsenal and three ahead of Everton at the top of the table after Chloe Kelly and Laura Coombs had put City 2-0 up at the break at Leigh Sports Village.

But Heath pulled a goal back when she cashed in on sloppy City defending and Hanson completed the comeback with 16 minutes remaining when she poked in.

Third-placed Everton, who featured Australian Hayley Raso in their ranks, were held to a 1-1 home draw by Reading while in the Second City derby, Birmingham beat Aston Villa 1-0 thanks to Claudia Walker's second-half goal.

On Sunday there's a London derby between second and fourth, when Caitlin Foord's Arsenal hosts a Chelsea side featuring fellow Matildas star striker Sam Kerr while West Ham takes on Brighton & Hove Albion in the other game.
