Sunderland's magnificent season keeps going from strength to strength and they regained the leadership of the National Division with a 2-0 victory over Chelsea.
Following on from their win over Arsenal, seven days earlier, the Wearsiders produced another good performance in this top of the table clash. They took a fifth minute lead when Sarah Danby, recently re-signed from Sheffield Wednesday, took advantage of a defensive mix-up to slot the ball into the empty net. Chelsea hit back with Lianne Sanderson hitting the bar and Rachael Laws saving well from Leanne Champ but Sunderland held on to their lead at the interval.
Sunderland doubled their lead just before the hour mark when a good move culminated with Demi Stokes cutting in from the right to drill a powerful shot into the far corner of the net. Steph Bannon and Jordan Nobbs both had efforts cleared off the line as Sunderland could have added to their lead in the later stages.
Doncaster Rovers Belles climbed into third place by beating Birmingham City 3-1. Precious Hamilton put the Belles in front against her former club with a 25-yard strike and captain Vicky Exley wrapped up the points via two penalties, early in the second half. Dannii Bird replied with a late consolation for the Blues.
Leeds Carnegie met Bristol Academy in the only other match to go ahead but there was only one winner - the weather. Remi Allen gave Leeds an early lead which was cancelled out just after the half hour by Katie Daley, who equalised from the penalty spot, but a waterlogged pitch forced the game to be abandoned at half time with the score level at 1-1.
