Everton ended Arsenal's glorious 108-match unbeaten run with a 3-0 victory which puts them in the driving seat in the Premier League title race.
The Toffees avenged last week's F.A.Women's Cup semi final defeat at the hands of the Gunners and never looked back after scoring twice in the opening 13 minutes through Fara Williams and Michelle Hinnigan. Jill Scott rounded off the win with the third goal early in the second half. Everton now trail Arsenal by six points but have three games in hand and, if they can repeat the feat in their return match, will be in a great position to claim their first title since 1998.
Chelsea further cemented themselves in third place, thanks to a 4-1 win against Doncaster Rovers Belles. The Blues shook off the disappointment of their defeat to Sunderland in the Cup semi finals last week and took a first half lead through Sarah Kempson. Lianne Sanderson netted on the hour and Kempson added a third before Vanessa Leat pulled one back for the Belles, but Sanderson sealed the win from the penalty spot, ten minutes from time.
Birmingham City are having a great season and are now in fourth place following their 1-0 success away to WFC Fulham. However it wasn't until three minutes from time that a resilient Fulham were broken down, when Heather Scheuber scored the winning goal. The result means that Fulham are condemned to finish in the bottom two.
A fourth win in five games has taken Leeds Carnegie to within one point of a place in the top half of the table. Ellen White continued her comeback from a long term injury by scoring the only goal of the game against Watford, just before the hour mark.
Bristol Academy gained their first league win since September and their first on their travels this season, 3-2 against Liverpool to banish any lingering relegation fears. An own goal from Sam Chappell put Academy in front before Gwennan Harries struck twice in quick succession. Danielle Sheen pulled a goal back for the Reds on the stroke of half time and Alyson Hastie gave them hope by scoring a late penalty but Academy held on to end their long league drought.
Nottingham Forest continue to battle hard for survival and gave their chances a great boost by winning 3-0 away to Blackburn Rovers, who themselves are not safe just yet. After Andi Bell gave Forest a first half lead against her former club, another ex-Blackburn player, Levi Penny, scored twice after the interval to give her side their third win in five matches.
