Chelsea Ladies ease past Watford in Continental Cup


Chelsea Ladies ease past Watford in Continental Cup
Chelsea Ladies returned to winning ways in the FA WSL Continental Cup by sweeping aside Watford Ladies 3-0.

Gilly Flaherty went close early on, only to see her header cleared off the line, while Atlanta Primus had a shot saved by Watford’s former QPR Ladies keeper Trippoli Witney.
It was Primus who broke the deadlock just after the half-hour mark with a half-volley into the bottom corner.

And the Blues stretched their lead thanks to Jodie Brett, who converted a low free-kick from Gemma Davison (pictured).

Both Witney and Chelsea keeper Marie Hourihan made saves in the second half before substitute Millie Farrow put a gloss on the scoreline for the visitors, who responded well to their defeat to Arsenal in the same competition on Saturday.
