Hull finish on winning note
Northern Premier Division
Burnley FC Women will finish the season in fourth place after beating Middlesbrough 6-1 in their last game. Evie Priestley led the scoring for the Clarets by hitting a hat-trick - which took her to 15 for the season and jointly topping the divisional goal charts - and the others came from Dominique Cooper, Nicola Worthington and Katie Thomas, with Armani Maxwell netting a consolation for 'Boro.
Two first half goals took Hull City to only their second league win of the season, which ensures they will not finish on the bottom. Helen Lynskey netted twice to pull Hull two ahead inside the opening twenty minutes at Huddersfield Town and despite the home side reducing the arrears on the half hour through Laura Elford, Hull held on for a notable 2-1 victory.
