Sunderland have taken over the leadership of the Northern Division after they defeated rivals OOH Lincoln 3-2.
Lincoln made the early running with Jodie Michalska hitting the bar but the striker made no mistake when giving the Lady Imps a 14th minute lead. Michalska went close again soon afterwards but Sunderland came back into the game and Kay Hawke made a smart save from Demi Stokes.
Sunderland levelled the scores as Natalie Gutteridge headed in a Steph Bannon free kick by Lincoln were back in front by the break as Michalska broke through on goal and slotted her shot past the advancing Helen Alderson.
Sunderland were back on terms again eight minutes after the restart when Sophie Williams scored at the second attempt. Both teams went for a third goal in an end-to-end affair but it was Sunderland who were to go in front for the first time as Williams unleashed a shot which found the net despite Hawke touching it on to the bar. It took a good save from Alderson to prevent Amanda Barr equalising for Lincoln and Gutteridge struck the bar at the other end but the win takes Sunderland two points clear of Lincoln, with two games in hand, and three clubs are a further two points adrift.
Aston Villa are one of these clubs, lifting themselves into fourth place with a 4-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers. Natalie Gibson put Villa ahead midway through the first half and Erin Vaughan doubled their lead by half time. Kelly Saggs added a third on the hour mark and Gibson rounded off the win with her second goal.
