Plymouth Argyle Ladies unable to build on Mousley advantage in first defeat
Oxford United...3 Argyle...1
PLYMOUTH ARGYLE LADIES suffered their first defeat of the season when they lost a keenly contested encounter at Oxford United.
Argyle, who have dropped down to third in the table, took the lead on 22 minutes when Emily Mousley turned nicely in the box and shot across the keeper and into the far corner.
But Oxford equalised just seven minutes later when a hopeful shot from the right wing by Natasha Caswell caught Sarah Stacey a couple of yards off her line – the ball going in over her head.

Argyle went behind just before the break. Full-back Anna Gower was caught in possession, the winger crossed an accurate ball for Caswell to turn and rifle the ball home from 12 yards.
A couple of minutes into the second half the Pilgrims conceded a third when the keeper was beaten at her near post from the left side of the box by a crisp strike from Catherine Beaver.
Argyle fought back strongly, but squandered several great chances to get back into the game.
SOUTH WEST PREMIERFrome Tn...1 Plymstock Utd...4
CHYNNA EVANS scored a hat-trick as promotion-chasing Plymstock claimed their first win of the season.
Plymstock, who had drawn their opening game, thought that their day was cursed when two players pulled up in the pre-match warm up with injuries and then five minutes into the game Kaylee Symons had to come off with suspected torn knee ligaments.
The changes meant it took Plymstock some time to settle into the game as Frome dominated and only some wayward finishing kept the visitors in the match.
But Plymstock slowly got going and they took the lead when Evans drove a vicious shot low into the corner of the net.
Mel West was then played in by Evans and she calmly curled the ball home to make it 2-0.
After the break Frome pulled a goal back with a smart finish from 12 yards.
But the visitors restored their lead straight from the re-start. Kate Bowden found Danni Krac, who raced through the defence only to see her 25-yard strike rebound off the crossbar. But Evans was reacted first and sided-footed the ball home from eight yards.
This seemed to knock the stuffing out of Frome and Plymstock took control of the game.
Evans completed her hat-trick when she latched on to a flick-on by Zara Northey and Evans to round the keeper and tuck the ball away.
