Arsenal sewed up their seventh Premier League title in a row and gained revenge for their F.A.Women's Cup Final defeat by beating Everton 4-2 at Boreham Wood.
The Gunners went into the game needing a point to secure the Championship and put themselves into a strong position as Rachel Yankey gave them the lead on the half hour and Gemma Davison added a second just ahead of the break.
Everton fought back early in the second half and Fara Williams reduced the arrears from a free kick, then Natasha Dowie struck just after the hour mark to level the scores. However this time they could not repeat their Final heroics and Arsenal restored their lead when Davison scored her second goal and Julie Fleeting wrapped up the victory with eight minutes remaining.
The race is still on for second place and Chelsea gave themselves a great chance of the runners-up spot, and a place in the UEFA Women's Champions League, with a fine 3-0 victory away to Blackburn Rovers.
Sophie Perry and Ann Marie Heatherson netted either side of half time for the Blues and Drew Spence completed the win with the third goal, twelve minutes from time.
Leeds Carnegie still lie in second place with one game to play, away to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday. Chelsea are one point adrift with one matches whilst Everton are a further two points behind and have two matches left - a superior goal difference meaning that Everton will take second place by winning their final two matches.
Sunderland rounded off an excellent first season after promotion in style, by winning 3-0 at Nottingham Forest. Gemma Wilson gave the Wearsiders a first half lead from a corner while Jordan Nobbs and Kelly McDougall both hit the bar. McDougall also hit the post after the break before Lucy Staniforth netted the second from a free kick and McDougall rounded off the scoring with fifteen minutes remaining.
Bristol Academy recorded their first draw of the season in their final match, 1-1 against Watford. Academy had looked to be on their way to only their fourth win of the season when Helen King gave them a first half lead but Watford earned themselves a share of the spoils in injury time when Sally Wade equalised from the penalty spot.
