Liverpool hold on to the leadership of the Northern Division after second placed Manchester City were beaten 3-1 by Preston North End.
Sarah McCrea, Sam Cadwallader and Alison Taberner netted the goals inside the opening half hour for Preston who consolidated their place in the top half of the table.
Two of the other challengers met each other at Leicester City, where the home side shared a 2-2 draw with OOH Lincoln. Both sides had to share the spoils in this close encounter, Lincoln opening the scoring after 12 minutes when City keeper Leanne Hall was unable to hold a Jodie Michalska shot and Carla Ward followed up to slam home. Shortly before half time, Leicester captain Rachel Stowell turned and shot past Kay Hawke following good build up play by Hannah Smith and Leah Rawle to go into the interval all square. The Foxes edged in front on the hour mark when Courtney Sweetman-Kirk outpaced the Lincoln defence to clip home from 25 yards. On 74 minutes, Jodie Michalska turned the City defence to fire home the equaliser which keeps her side in third place, just ahead of Leicester.
A late goal earned Newcastle Utd a 2-1 victory against Curzon Ashton. Beth Gardener put them in front in the ninth minute with a neat finish and Curzon were back on level terms midway through the second half when in-form striker Shelley James lobbed home. The game looked to be heading for a draw until Stacy Crooks curled home a winner for Newcastle, her 10th goal of the season.
Leeds City Vixens got back to winning ways with a 5-1 success away to Sheffield Wednesday. Stacey Daniel bagged a hat-trick and there were further goals from Ruth Cockerill and Emma Lipman.
Luton Town looked to heading on their way towards their first victory of the season until being thwarted by a late comeback from Derby County. Micky Taylor and Laveena Betts put them into a two-goal lead before late strikes from Lauren Steadman and Jemma Douglas earned a point for Derby, who also hit the post in the dying minutes. The result takes Derby out of the bottom two at the expense of Sheffield Wednesday.
