Arsenal have taken over the leadership of the National Division for the first time this season after their 3-1 win at Blackburn Rovers.
The first half ended goalless with Faye White giving Arsenal the lead early after the restart and Julie Fleeting added the second. Katie Anderton pulled a goal back for Blackburn but Kelly Smith secured the points for the Gunners, five minutes from time.
Bristol Academy had led the table since October but are now back in second place after they were beaten 3-1 at home by Everton. Natasha Dowie gave Everton a fifteenth minute lead which Jody Handley doubled on the hour mark. Kerrie Manley bundled the ball home to reduce the arrears for Academy but with ten minutes remaining, Handley made the game safe with her second goal.
Leeds Utd moved into fourth place with a hard earned 3-2 victory at Birmingham City. Amanda Barr gave Leeds a thirteenth minute lead which was quickly cancelled out by Becky Hall, Steph Samuels then put the Blues in front with Sue Smith equalising on the stroke of half time. Midway through the second half, Steph Houghton netted her first goal of the season to settle matters in Leeds' favour.
Doncaster Rovers Belles edged out Chelsea by the odd goal in seven. Dunia Susi gave Chelsea an early lead but the Belles hit back with Carla Cantrell, Liz Hanson and VIcky Exley all netting before half time. Susi scored her second just after the hour before Hanson restored the Belles' two-goal advantage. Jess Smith gave Chelsea late hope but Doncaster held on for a 4-3 victory.
Liverpool netted four times without reply against Cardiff City, whose fight for survival is becoming a tougher task each week. Kelly Jones, Jo Traynor, Cheryl Foster and Gill Hart were all on target for the Reds who are now a huge twelve points clear of the relegation zone.
