Brighton 1-2 Everton: Holmgaard twins combine as Toffees snatch victory at the AMEX

A Guro Bergsvand own goal at the AMEX Stadium handed three points to a visiting Everton side, with Tatiana Pinto’s 63rd-minute equaliser proving to not be enough after the Holmgaard twins combined to open the scoring.

As it happened

A tightly-contested affair on the South Coast lacked clear-cut chances in the first half, with the first goal not arriving until Everton’s Holmgaard twins combined on the hour mark.

Sara Holmgaard’s cross was knocked past Sophie Baggaley by Karen Holmgaard, but the Toffees lead would last just three minutes – Tatiana Pinto found the back of the net with a rebounded effort after Maisie Symonds rattled the crossbar.

An unfortunate series of events would ultimately see Guro Bergsvand bundle the ball into her own net following Aurora Galli’s ball into the box.
