That was quick! In the second minute after kickoff in the final WSL match of the season for Chelsea Women, Jess Carter takes a corner straight to Melanie Leupolz’s feet in Readings’s penalty box at Kingsmeadow. The midfielder only had to take a good shot with her first touch at goal to convert her chance, and open the scoring for the Blues today.
