Aussie Emily van Egmond pulled one back in the 39tg minute as she rose above everyone else to head a Kenza Dali cross.

The two goal margin was soon restored as Leah Galton's cross is angled home by a fine header from Alessia Russo in the 42nd minute.

West Ham got back into the game in the 83rd minute as are back in it again as Rachel Daly clips over what looks like a cross, but it probes goalwards and drops in to the net at the far post with Mary Earp getting her fingetips unto the ball.

Game over in the 87th minute as Lucy Staniforth launches a deep free-kick to the back post and it is volleyed home by Christen Press.
