Arsenal moved even further ahead at the top of the National Division but, for the second time this season, were given a hard battle by Doncaster Rovers Belles.
The two teams met last month, with Arsenal winning by the odd goal in seven, and the return game at the Keepmoat Stadium turned out to be nearly as close as this time the Gunners triumphed 4-2 to go thirteen points clear.
Yvonne Tracy bundled Arsenal into an early lead with her second goal of the season but the Belles were quickly back on terms through a strike from Liz Hanson. Lianne Sanderson put Arsenal back in front before the interval. Jayne Ludlow increased the lead and, although Precious Hamilton gave the Belles renewed hope by pulling a goal back, Sanderson fired home her second goal to secure Arsenal's 15th straight victory and take herself to the joint leadership of the goalscoring charts with Katie Anderton.
Everton entered the top three for the first time this season, moving above Blackburn Rovers after coming from behind to beat them 5-1.
Blackburn got off to a flying start and took an early lead through captain Natalie Preston and it was not until after the break that Everton turned the match around.
Natasha Dowie levelled the scores early after the restart and Fara Williams put them ahead for the first time from the penalty spot.
Jody Handley ensured the Toffees took a firm grip on the game and Jo Potter netted twice to round off the victory.
