Southern Division leaders WFC Fulham were held for the second successive week as they shared a 1-1 draw with AFC Team Bath.
Gemma Fraser was on target for the Whites with Michelle Munro finding the net to give Team Bath a precious point in their battle against relegation. Both teams could have won the game, Fulham having long periods of pressure but could not break the resistance of the Team Bath defence and goalkeeper Lauren Wells, who pulled off a number of fine saves, and at the other end Holly Miles struck the bar with a 30-yard shot late on.
Fulham now need to win two of their last three games to make sure of winning the title, as second placed Barnet caught up some ground by scoring eight without reply against Reading Royals. Katie O'Leary opened up for the Bees with the first of a four-goal haul, and there was a goal apiece from Gemma Rudman, Charlotte Herson, Gemma Shepherd and Madeleine Hills. The result confirms that the Royals are now relegated to Combination football next season.
Millwall Lionesses' remaining hopes received a fatal blow as they were beaten 2-0 at home by Keynsham Town. Sheila Rocha gave the Somerset side a fifteenth minute lead and Hari Sabic secured the victory midway through the second half.
Crystal Palace can still finish in the top three and they kept up that challenge with an excellent 3-0 victory away to Portsmouth. All of the goals came in the first half, an own goal by Leeta Rutherford giving Palace the lead before they added further strikes from Jen Poole and Beth Curtis.
West Ham Utd ran out 4-1 winners away to Newquay to climb into fifth place. Natalie Grafton put the Hammers in front with Lisa Hegarty equalising for the home team, but in the second half a Rebecca Roll double and Clare Rogers sealed a convincing win for the young West Ham side.
