Blackburn Rovers returned to league action with their tenth straight victory on Sunday, beating Doncaster Rovers Belles 9-2 to preserve their lead of three points.
Rovers were three goals up inside the opening thirteen minutes, Natasha Flint netting either side of a Lagan Makin goal. An own goal reduced the arrears but Beth Donoghue added a fourth at the mid-point of the first half, Stewart netted the next and Flint then completed her hat-trick. Izzy Whittle pulled one back for the Belles but a remarkable first half ended with Flint scoring her fourth, five minutes ahead of the interval. The second half produced two more goals with Makin completing her double and Flint hitting her fifth goal on the day.
Huddersfield Town moved up into second place, thanks to a 3-2 victory over Derby County. Brittany Sanderson's sixth minute strike was cancelled out by Cara Newton but Kate Mallin ensured that Town were back in front by the twenty minute mark. Newton levelled matters again with her second goal, early in the second half, but it was Huddersfield who came up with an injury time winner, Mallin completing her double to seal her side's fourth straight league win.
Stoke City maintained their upsurge in form by beating Hull City 4-1, which takes them into fourth. All of Stoke's goals came during the first half with Natasha Tezgel, Amy Hughes, Ashleigh Hayes and Kelsey Richardson all on target, whilst Hull's consolation came from Rachael Ackroyd.
Four matches were played in the division on Sunday and they yielded a total of 30 goals, with nine of them being scored by fifth placed Fylde Ladies in their win against Bradford City. Emily Hollinshead opened the scoring in the second minute and Georgia Stevens added a brace to put the Coasters three up at half time. Georgia Payton, Sasha Rowe and Sophie Charlton further increased their lead before Stevens netted her third and Hollinshead scored two late goals to also complete her hat-trick.
