The two title contenders in the Northern Division each recorded large away victories to step up their respective challenges.
OOH Lincoln scored six without reply at Tranmere Rovers to maintain their advantage of nine points. Carla Ward gave them the lead in the opening minute and Jodie Michalska added two ahead of the interval. Leandra Little netted the fourth on the hour and Michalska completed a four-goal haul with two goals in a five minute spell to give the Lady Imps another victory, but they only have one game left to play.
Sunderland meanwhile notched up their record Premier League win, 11-0 against Rotherham Utd who have been condemned to relegation. After Gemma Wilson and Sarah Danby had struck inside the opening four minutes, Kelly McDougall added a third, Sophie Williams bagged a hat-trick and Natalie Gutteridge also netted before the break as Rotherham caught the backlash from Sunderland's defeat the previous Sunday. Lucy Bronze found the net before Williams added two more to take her personal tally to five and Jordan Nobbs completed the tally in the dying minutes. Sunderland have six games remaining and need 13 points to be sure of winning the title.
Manchester City built on last week's win over Sunderland to beat Aston Villa 2-0 and go into third place. Sarah Penney added to her growing reputation by netting both goals, the first from the penalty spot and the second on the stroke of half time.
Reading FC Women are another side finishing the season in good form and they are looking set for a top half position following their 2-1 victory over Leicester City. Stacey Wiggins netted her first goal for two years to give Reading a first half lead which was doubled on the half hour by Jen Osmond, with Natasha Meade pulling a late goal back for Leicester.
