Amalie Thestrup’s late goal secured a 2-2 draw for Bristol City against Everton in the Barclays Women’s Super League on Sunday.
Despite Everton taking an early lead with Piemonte’s goal, Bristol City twice came from behind, with Amy Rodgers equalizing just before halftime.
Everton’s captain, Megan Finnigan, put them ahead again in the second half, but Thestrup’s goal in the closing minutes earned a crucial point for Bristol City.
Both teams remain in a precarious position at the bottom of the table, with Everton still seeking their first home league win, and Bristol City having earned only four points from their first seven games.
The match highlighted Everton’s strong start, taking the lead after five minutes, but Bristol City gradually improved, capitalizing on an Everton error for Rodgers’ first-half goal.
The game saw back-and-forth action, with chances for both sides. Everton regained the lead in the second half through Finnigan, but Bristol City continued to press. Thestrup’s equalizer, assisted by Layzell, came eight minutes from time, stunning the home fans.
Despite a late chance for Everton’s substitute Toni Duggan, the match ended in a 2-2 draw, adding to Everton’s frustration at home.
