Arsenal preserved their five point lead at the top of the National Division, thanks to a 2-1 win away to Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Jennifer Beattie gave the Gunners a first half lead which was doubled by an own goal from Chelsea Weston. The Belles reduced the arrears with six minutes remaining through Precious Hamilton but Arsenal need three wins from their last five games to secure yet another title.
Chelsea climbed back into second place with a 2-0 victory over Leeds Carnegie. Claire Rafferty put them ahead midway through the first half and Ann Marie Heatherson sealed a fifth consecutive win for her side with the second goal, on the stroke of half time.
Everton kept their title hopes alive by running out 5-0 winners at Bristol Academy, a result which takes them into third. Natasha Dowie led the scoring for the Toffees with a hat-trick and Jill Scott weighed in with the other two goals.
Sunderland ended their recent losing run with a 3-0 win away to Blackburn Rovers to all but guarantee themselves a top half finish. Jordan Nobbs grabbed the only goal of the first half for the Wearsiders and they went on to clinch the points after the break with further strikes from Kelly McDougall and Demi Stokes.
A late goal gave Birmingham City a much needed 1-0 victory against Nottingham Forest. Kerys Harrop scored the only goal of the game, four minutes from time, to lift her side out of the bottom three.
