Birmingham City atop of FA Women’s Super League
Although they’ve yet to face the toughest tests, Birmingham City comfortably sit in first place in the FA Women’s Super League after two games. No matter the result of Thursday’s game between Arsenal and Bristol Academy, Birmingham City will enter this weekend in first place. With Wednesday’s 4-0 win over Liverpool, the Blues improved to 2-0 and have outscored their opponents, 8-0. Doncaster drew, 1-1, with Everton and sit in second place with four points. An Arsenal win Thursday over Bristol Academy would put them in a first-place tie with Birmingham City.
Wednesday, Birmingham City got a hat trick from Rachel Williams and goal from Dunia Susi. Williams and Susi both were called up to play for England in its May 17th friendly against Sweden. Two other Blues also got the call from Hope Powell – Karen Carney and Laura Bassett. In Birmingham’s first win of the season, a 4-0 pummeling of Bristol Academy, Williams and Carney scored two goals apiece. Williams now leads the FAWSL with five goals in two games.
