Everton and Leeds Carnegie stepped up their title challenges in the National Division with important victories in away matches played in London.
Everton leapfrogged Chelsea into third place by beating them 5-2 and avenging their defeat at the hands of the Blues earlier in the season. Rebecca Jane did give Chelsea a ninth minute lead but Jill Scott equalised a minute later and Natasha Dowie netted twice, either side of half time. Michelle Hinnigan added a fourth for the Toffees and, although Danielle Buet gave Chelsea renewed hope by pulling a goal back, Fara Williams rounded off the scoring from the penalty spot with eleven minutes remaining.
Leeds Carnegie meanwhile moved into fourth, courtesy of a 4-0 win away to Millwall Lionesses. Ellen White ensured that the Yorkshire side went into half time with a lead and Mel Sutcliffe added a second early after the restart. White then kept up her superb recent form by netting twice more to complete her hat-trick and put herself in the frame for a starting place in the England line up against Austria this Thursday.
The bottom two teams in the table met each other and it was Blackburn Rovers who emerged as 1-0 winners from a largely scrappy game against Bristol Academy. The home side started well but it was Katie Anderton who scored the only goal of the game in the 28th minute. Blackburn could have added to their lead after the break but needed to dig in and defend a series of Bristol corners during the last ten minutes, in order to hold on for the points.
