Keith Boanas’s side had gone in a goal up at the break thanks to a Rinsola Babajide penalty, and they doubled their lead four minutes into the second-half with a Vicky Neal header.
Then Emma Beckett stole the show with an amazing long-range lob straight from kick-off, pulling a goal back for the visitors, and captain Ashleigh Goddard clawed her side level with 14 minutes to go.
Six minutes from time, goal machine Jo Wilson scrambled the ball home to grab all three points for the flying Bees.
Sheffield got their campaign under way with a 2-1 win against Millwall Lionesses, Hannah Cain and Sophie Jones both getting their names on the scoresheet and Ashlee Hincks managing a consolation goal for the hosts.
And Oxford and Brighton played out a 1-1 draw at Culver Road, with 16-year-old Evie Gane’s fine long-distance effort getting the better of Ireland international Emma Byrne and securing a point after Bronwen Thomas opened the scoring.
