Birmingham City Ladies 3-0 Arsenal Women

Ellen White
Ellen White was named Women's Super League One player of the month for March

England striker Ellen White scored a hat-trick as Birmingham City beat Arsenal to move up to fifth in the Women's Super League One table.

White put Blues ahead when she latched onto Marisa Ewers' pass before chipping neatly into the bottom corner.

The 28-year-old made it 2-0 before the break, converting a right-wing cross.

Goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal saved Aoife Mannion's penalty to keep Arsenal in the match, but White completed her treble with a first-time lob late on.

Blues are now two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and three adrift of Manchester City Women in second.
