A clinical West Ham United performance in front of goal saw the Irons claim a well-deserved 3-1 victory away to Brighton & Hove Albion. Having taken an earned lead in the first half after Martha Thomas’ clinical effort from eight yards, Kenza Dali’s penalty and Alisha Lehmann’s fine finish in a three-minute spell in the second meant the points headed back to Rush Green Stadium with the away side.

West Ham United shared the spoils and points with Liverpool in a keenly-fought, high-tempo contest on Merseyside. Adriana Leon's smart finish in the fifth minute looked to have given the Hammers the perfect platform in Sunday's Barclays FA Women's Super League encounter, but Liverpool hit back in the second period and managed to claim a point thanks to Niamh Charles' close-range finish 13 minutes from time.

Katharina Baunach scored a stunning 90th-minute free-kick as West Ham United mounted a remarkable late comeback against Manchester United. After twice into behind only to draw level moments later, Baunach stepped up and curled a brilliant finish from inside the 'D', over the wall and into the bottom corner as the game ticked into injury time. Laura Vetterlein and another Baunach free-kick at opposite ends of the match had earlier cancelled out opportunistic strikes by Kirsty Hanson and Lauren James, before the German left-back's glorious winner capped a memorable victory.

A valiant West Ham United effort was not enough for the Irons to hold off Chelsea, who defeated claimed a 2-0 victory. The Hammers’ opening Continental League Cup match was decided by goals from Bethany England and Guro Reiten, while goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse made a series of stunning saves as well. Martha Thomas went close twice in the first period, when the match was still a goalless draw, but the home team claimed the victory in the second period.

West Ham United lost 3-1 to Chelsea in the Women’s Super League on a disappointing Sunday afternoon at Rush Green Stadium. Adriana Leon’s strike moments after entering the field from the bench had put the Hammers in front with half-an-hour remaining, but Chelsea managed to find the net three times in the last 20 minutes. The loss sees West Ham slip to seventh in the WSL table, with six points from their first five fixtures. 2,122 supporters packed into the Rush Green Stadium, the highest total for a game at the Hammers’ home ground so far this season.

West Ham United fell to a penalty shoot-out defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur after a thrilling 2-2 match in 90 minutes. Having gone two goals behind through Rianna Dean and Josie Green scoring to Spurs, West Ham had Rush Green Stadium rocking as both Martha Thomas and Kenza Dali scored in added-time at the end of the second half to earn the Irons a share of the points.

As per FA Women’s Continental League Cup rules, a penalty shoot-out followed, which Tottenham won 4-2, meaning the away side take two points from Sunday’s match while the Hammers must settle for one.

West Ham United women's team ran out comprehensive 7-0 winners against Crystal Palace Women in the FA Women's Continental League Cup at Rush Green. The Hammers had five different scorers on the night and welcomed back Esmee De Graaf and Julia Simic after extended spells out with injury. It was a bittersweet evening for Matt Beard’s side however, who were left unable to qualify for the knockout-stages due to Reading’s penalty shoot-out victory over Chelsea in the evening’s other group encounter. The win sees West Ham finish 3rd in Group D on 10 points, with three wins and a draw from five group games.

Alisha Lehmann’s cool finish after a brilliant West Ham United passing move was the all-important difference as the Irons claimed a huge 1-0 victory away to Reading in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup. The No7 secured her fourth goal in three outings against the Royals with just 15 minutes left to play at the Madejski Stadium, turning home from Leanne Kiernan’s cross to send the points back to east London with the Irons.

 

A disappointing first half at the Academy Stadium cost West Ham United dearly as the side fell 5-0 to Manchester City. A clinical spell by the home team saw Georgia Stanway net twice and Lauren Hemp score in a seven-minute spell which, added to Ellen White’s eleventh-minute opener, put City in control at half-time. Tessa Wullaert got a fifth for City just a few minutes into the second period, while the Irons tested Ellie Roebuck through Leanne Kiernan and Alisha Lehmann late on. City ended the match with ten players after Georgia Stanway was sent off for two yellow cards.

 

 

West Ham fell to a late second-half comeback as ten-woman Reading claimed an unlikely 3-2 win at Rush Green Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Three quickfire goals inside the last 15 minutes condemned the home team to a Barclay's FA Women's Super League loss which for the vast majority of the match had looked beyond their reach, particularly when smart strikes from Katharina Baunach and Leanne Kiernan had granted them a two-goal lead after 65 minutes.

West Ham United suffered a cruel, late 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur in the side’s first match of 2020. Spurs had taken a first-half lead courtesy of Emma Mitchell but, with nine minutes of added team on the clock, it seemed the Irons had done enough to take a point. Kenza Dali scored a powerful finish from outside the area to level the game. However, Rianna Dean turned home a close range header to break West Ham hearts and give Tottenham the result.

Alisha Lehmann’s quickfire second-half double saw West Ham United come from behind to claim a vital and well-fought 2-1 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion. The away side had taken the lead in dubious circumstances, as Danique Kerkdijk’s first-half header was deemed to have crossed the line, but Lehmann levelled on 80 minutes with a clever volleyed finish. Less than three minutes later, Lehmann had her side’s second, scoring a cool strike for her fourth goal of the season and securing all three points for Matt Beard’s team.

West Ham United fell to an 8-0 away defeat at the hands of Chelsea in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League. Early finishes from Maren Mjelde and Bethany England put the Blues two goals in front before 12 minutes had been played, with Sophie Ingle adding a third for the home side prior to half-time. The Chelsea striker completed her hat-trick and Mjelde got a second in the second period, while Erin Cuthbert and Ramona Bachmann also scored for the Blues, before Emily Murphy netted in added-time. A tough afternoon could have, in truth, been much worse if not for a number of top saves by Courtney Brosnan, who denied the likes of England, Bachmann, and Jonna Andersson from making the score worse. A victory, and results elsewhere, could put Chelsea top of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League, and it took the home side only seven minutes to open the scoring.

West Ham United’s hopes of reaching the knock-out stages of this season’s FA Women’s Continental League Cup were kept alive thanks to a 3-1 Group D victory over Lewes. Leanne Kiernan’s finish and Kenza Dali’s double, all netted in the first period, was enough for the Hammers to claim the win over the Rookettes, who scored through Chloe Winchester on 78 minutes. Early on, it was clear that West Ham were desperate to impress in front of the 652 spectators at Rush Green Stadium who had braved the cold on a Winter Wednesday evening.

Two finishes of real quality proved the difference as West Ham United lost 2-0 to Women's Super League champions Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round. Dealt one of the most difficult ties possible at this stage of the competition, last season's finalists fought hard throughout but lost out to two superb strikes either side of half-time, courtesy of Katie McCabe and Lia Walti. While the end result was disappointing, the Hammers proved much the equal for their illustrious rivals and enjoyed chances to level while only one goal down, but in the end couldn't quite make it happen as they turn their attentions to the Women's Super League for the remainder of the season.
