Sunderland closed the gap on Northern Division leaders OOH Lincoln to two points as they ran out 4-0 winners away to Tranmere Rovers.
Tranmere goalkeeper Gaynor Collins made a fine save to deny Vicki Greenwell but she could not prevent Sunderland from taking the lead shortly before half time as Sophie Williams curled a shot home from the edge of the area.
After the break, Demi Stokes and Natalie Gutteridge were denied by good saves from Collins before substitute Sarah Danby increased Sunderland's lead midway through the second half. Danby struck the post shortly afterwards but the Wearsiders went on to seal the points through late strikes from Jordan Nobbs and Steph Bannon.
Curzon Ashton meanwhile lifted themselves off the bottom of the table and four places up the table, thanks to a precious 1-0 victory over high riding Newcastle Utd. The only goal of the game came five minutes into the second half as Becky Lee broke clear to lob home and end Newcastle's eight match unbeaten run, but the Magpies were unable to take an opportunity to snatch a point when Kelly Ridley's penalty hit the post.
In the only match to go ahead in the Southern Division on Sunday, Truro City moved off the bottom with a 2-0 win away to second placed Cardiff City.
After Danielle Broadhurst went close for Cardiff early on, Truro took a 20th minute lead as Danni Barr headed home from a free kick.
Leanne Lapham added a second three minutes later and the Truro defence stood firm under Cardiff pressure to secure three valuable points.
