Everton closed the gap on National Division leaders Arsenal to six points, with three games in hand, as they produced a win whilst their rivals drew.
Arsenal were left frustrated by a goalless draw with Doncaster Rovers Belles, who gained a modicum of revenge for their 5-0 defeat in the Premier League Cup Final by sharing the spoils in a hard fought match.
Everton meanwhile ran up a 6-0 victory against relegated WFC Fulham. Toni Duggan and Jill Scott netted first half goals to send the Toffees on their way before captain Fara Williams bagged a second half hat-trick and Jody Handley rounded off the scoring.
Chelsea clinched a top three place for the first time in their history, thanks to a 3-1 win against Nottingham Forest. Sarah Kempson took her tally to five goals in three games by netting twice and Lianne Sanderson was also on target for the Blues, with Forest replying through Kelly Finley.
Leeds Carnegie came away from Bristol Academy with a 2-1 victory but the result was marred as England international Steph Houghton sustained what appeared to be a serious knee injury. In an eventful first half, Sue Smith scored the only goal and Carla Cantrell twice rattled the woodwork but at the other end, Carly Telford made excellent saves from Corinne Yorston and Loren Dykes while Emma Jones had a header cleared off the line. The second half was more scrappy but Leeds sealed the points when Cantrell finished off a fine move involving Smith and Ellen White, before Yorston scored a late consolation for Academy from the penalty spot.
