Burnley upped their game inthe second half, and goals from Annabelle Uttley and Tiggi Gent made it 5-3 with 15 minutes remaining.
Grace Turner powered home the fourth goal, and the chance to equalise came from a penalty with eight minutes remaining. Turner stepped up in search of her hat-trick, only to be denied by a good save, but the resulting corner saw Grace Mills curl the ball into the back of the net, to make it 5-5.
And when Phoebe Johnstone played a superb ball through to Turner, she made it 6-5.
With a minute to go, Gent supplied a great side-foot finish to seal a fantastic 7-5 win.
