Sunderland Women 2
 Watford Ladies 2

Watford Ladies made it eight games unbeaten with a 2-2 draw at reigning champions Sunderland.

Watford are the only team to have taken points from the Black Cats this season, and replicated the 2-2 draw they achieved at Broadwater earlier in the year.

Watford had a couple of decent chances early on, and it was the Hornets who broke the deadlock in the first half. Sarah Wiltshire put the ball across, and Jo Wilson was on hand to poke home.

Beth Mead restored parity for Sunderland before half-time, but the Golden Girls edged in front again after the break as Wilson netted her second to make it 2-1.

Watford battled to defend their lead, but Sunderland earned a share of the spoils late on courtesy of another Mead goal.
