Leeds Carnegie suffered a huge blow to their title chances as they went down to a 1-0 defeat at home to Chelsea.
On a day in which all five National Division matches ended in away victories, the decisive moment of the match came in the 28th minute when Ann Marie Heatherson scored the only goal of the game. Chelsea's fourth win in five games has now taken them up into third place.
Arsenal took full advantage and closed the gap on Leeds to a single point, with two games in hand, with a 1-0 win over Everton whose own title hopes are beginning to fade. Rachel Yankey gave the Gunners a sixth minute lead but they had to dig in deep to hold on for the points, particularly after captain Jayne Ludlow was sent off with fifteen minutes remaining.
Doncaster Rovers Belles moved themselves to within one point of fifth placed Sunderland by beating them 3-0. Rachel Williams put the Belles in front after five minutes and Vicky Exley added a second just before the half hour mark, with Sarah Owen sealing the win midway through the second half.
Blackburn Rovers are out of the bottom three following their 2-0 success at Millwall Lionesses. Katie Anderton took her league tally into double figures with two second half strikes for in-form Rovers.
Bristol Academy meanwhile claimed only their third win of the season and raised hopes of climbing off the bottom after their 2-1 victory at Nottingham Forest. Reanne Thomas put Forest in front just before half time but Bristol, who were missing a number of first choice players, hit back after the break with Emma Jones equalising and Helen Bleazard netting the winner shortly after the hour.
