West Ham Utd claimed a top three place in the Southern Division for the first time in their history with a 3-0 victory over Portsmouth.
An own goal by Cally Beaumont separated the sides at half time but the Hammers rounded off an excellent season, in which they were beaten only three times, when Holly Griffin added the second just after the hour and Gemma Shepherd wrapped up the win with three minutes remaining.
The result puts West Ham level on points with Barnet but the Bees are virtually guaranteed the runners-up spot barring a disaster in their final game against Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.
Millwall Lionesses meanwhile completed their campaign with another victory, 1-0 away to Brighton & Hove Albion. Meghan McKeag scored the only goal of the game, seven minutes before half time.
There was plenty of goalmouth action at Keynsham Town where visitors Charlton Athletic recorded a 3-2 victory. Harley Bennett netted twice for the Addicks within the opening fifteen minutes and, although Brianna Oeser halved the deficit, Ellie Stenning added a third just before the half hour. Amy Clark netted a second for Keynsham but in the second half, Charlton went close on numerous occasions, striking the woodwork three times and finding Keynsham goalkeeper Linette Newton in outstanding form.
Crystal Palace won 2-1 away to Truro City to banish their relegation fears at the expense of Ipswich Town, who will return to the South East Combination after just one year. Kenne Ogunneye and Rachel Anson netted first half goals for Palace, with Sarah Mansfield pulling a goal back for Truro ten minutes from time.
One match was played in the Northern Division, where Sheffield Wednesday ensured they will finish outside of the bottom three by beating Preston North End 2-0. Tanya Rich has proved to be a valuable mid-season acquisition for the Owls and she netted both goals to take her league tally since joining Wednesday to 11.
