Northern Division One
Hull City will have to wait at least a week in order to claim the title after they went down to a 1-0 defeat away to Newcastle Utd. Rhiannon Gray scored the only goal of the game as Newcastle moved up into mid-table and they can still mathematically finish as high as fourth place.
It is all over though for Liverpool Marshalls Feds as they also lost 1-0 at Bolton Wanderers and they can no longer finish on top of the table. A goal five minutes from time by Emily Hockenhull gave Bolton a fine win which takes them into fourth - their highest position of the season to date.
Brighouse Town are now the only remaining team which can still overhaul Hull and they kept those hopes alive by getting on the right end of a 1-0 scoreline, away to Crewe Alexandra. Jodie Redgrave netted the only goal of the game for Brighouse who remain in third and trail the leaders by seven points, with three matches left to play.
Chorley meanwhile claimed their fourth victory in five matches, a 2-1 win against Chester-le-Street Town and this has taken them into the top half of the table. Scarlett Smith opened the scoring with two minutes on the clock and Vicky Coope added a second early after half time, before Nichole Goundry-Havery netted a consolation goal for the Cestrians.
All five matches in the division on Sunday were decided by the odd goal, including Leeds Utd's crucial 2-1 victory over Mossley Hill which takes them above the Merseysiders and out of the bottom two. Holly Findlay and Carey Huegett netted the goals for Leeds, with Mossley replying through Olivia Ellinson.
Midlands Division One
Sporting Khalsa rekindled their chances of claiming a top half place at the end of the season as they scored six times without reply past Leicester City Ladies. Rebecca Gill-Parsons led the scoring with a hat-trick and she was joined on the scoresheet by Lyndsey Glover, Katie Nardone and Lauren Walker.
In the other game, Birmingham & West Midlands Ladies recorded another good away victory when they triumphed 5-2 at Rotherham Utd. Charlotte Fisher netted two of the goals along with Shannie Jennings, Emily Painter and Louise Price, whilst Libby Hallam bagged a brace in reply for the home side.
South East Division One
AFC Wimbledon have picked up the pace again at the top with a 3-2 success away to Luton Town. Caroline Bisson netted a goal in each half and Katie Stanley added the other for Wimbledon, whilst on target for Luton were Funmi Babalola and Nicola Henman.
Milton Keynes Dons continue to close in though and their 6-2 victory over Norwich City took them up into second place. Heather McDonnell led the scoring with a hat-trick and the others were scored by Charly Clarke, Laura Mills and Kim Farrow with Chelsea Garrett and Natasha Snelling replying.
MK followed this up on Tuesday night with a fine 2-0 win away to in-form Actonians Ladies. Leah Cudone netted two goals to leave her side three points behind leaders AFC Wimbledon, but with two games in hand.
Stevenage Ladies remain on course for a top half place after sharing a 1-1 draw with Denham Utd. Donna McGuigan was on target for Stevenage whilst Denham, who drew for the seventh time this season, scored through Hattie Kettle.
South West Division One
Plymouth Argyle have taken a huge stride towards the title following a 7-1 victory over previously unbeaten leaders Southampton Women. In the first of successive, and eagerly anticipated, meetings between the top two, Plymouth gained a huge advantage thanks to doubles from Amber Pollock and Natasha Knapman, with Becky Dandridge, Katie Middleton and Zoe Cunningham adding the others. Laura Vokes netted a consolation for Southampton who still head the table by three points but Plymouth have two games in hand, and the teams face each other again this week.
Keynsham Town kept themselves in third place by winning 4-1 away to Larkhall Athletic. The teams had met in their County Cup Final three days earlier and it was Keynsham who triumphed again with Kerry Bartlett netting twice, along with Justine Lorton and Ellie Curson, whilst Emily Harrington grabbed a consolation for the Larks.
Southampton Saints will still have their eyes on a top three place though and kept up the challenge as they also won 4-1 against St Nicholas. Catherine Browning bagged a brace for the Saints with Alisha Buckingham and Libby O'Dell adding the others, Rhian Robbins replying.
Brislington survived a late onslaught by Poole Town but held out for a 4-3 victory which takes them away from the bottom places. Polly Wardle was on target twice along with Zoe Gunter and Sophie Whelan as Brislington raced into a 4-1 lead but Poole, who had earlier scored through Katie Paul, staged a late fightback with an Alexis Bussell brace almost salvaging a point late on.
Two days later, Brislington claimed their third win in four matches after coming from behind to beat Larkhall Athletic 3-1. Ann-Marie Hervey gave Larkhall the lead with Polly Wardle equalising, before Georgia Vandries and Amy Jefferies added further goals to give their side a result which takes them up to sixth.
