What were you doing on November 17th, 2019? You probably don’t remember, why would you? It’s just your normal, average every day, day. Unless you happened to be born on such a dreary date, there’s nothing about it that’s worth remembering.

For Bethany England, however, it was probably the day she decided she’d had enough with not scoring in league matches. The 1-0 win over Manchester United was still a win, but England’s name was not on the score sheet, and that, she must’ve decided, was simply unacceptable.

On Sunday, against the best goalkeeper in the WSL and the best defense in the league, Bethany England did this to give Chelsea their first lead of the match. Sadly, it was only held for two minutes. But the goal marked England’s ninth consecutive league game with a goal.


How long is nine consecutive games with a goal? Pretty long, as it turns out.
