The top two remain on course for a title showdown as Arsenal and Everton both preserved their 100% records with away victories.
Arsenal stay six points clear at the summit after they scored four without reply away to Blackburn Rovers. Niamh Fahey gave the Gunners a 27th minute lead which was doubled by Kelly Smith ahead of the break. Karen Carney - playing her last league game for Arsenal before her move to Chicago - added the third before Smith netted her second midway through the second half.
Everton made sure of keeping pace with Arsenal but needed to come from behind to beat Bristol Academy 3-1. Gwennan Harries sent Academy in front with a fourteenth minute strike before Natasha Dowie equalised just after the half hour. It took a brilliant fingertip save from Rachel Brown to deny Kerry Bartlett from putting Bristol back in front early in the second half but growing Everton pressure began to tell and the home side's resistance was broken as Dowie scored from close range to put her side ahead for the first time and the striker did her England prospects no harm as she completed her hat-trick seven minutes from time, slotting home a penalty following a foul on Toni Duggan in the area.
Chelsea's challenge now appears to be over and they look set for third place after they drew 1-1 with fast improving Liverpool. Cheryl Foster continued her excellent season by putting the Reds in front on the half hour and it looked as though it would be enough to give her side the points, until Rebecca Jane salvaged a point for the Blues with an 86th minute equaliser.
Leeds Carnegie have moved into the top half of the table but WFC Fulham are now eight points adrift of safety as the Yorkshire side notched up a 2-0 victory. Jess Clarke opened the scoring for Leeds just before half time but it wasn't until the last five minutes that they were able to secure the points, when Jade Moore netted the second.
