Leicester City took over as the new leaders of the Northern Division with a 7-2 win away to Rotherham Utd.
Leicester opened the scoring after sixteen minutes when Shona Franklin chested the ball down from a Issy Hayes flick on to volley home. Within two minutes the Millers were level when City's Annabel Johnson put through her own net from a Stacey Aisthorpe cross. However, in the 24th minute Johnson made amends when she hit home a raking 35 yard shot and Katie McLoughlin fired home from a Natalie Reay corner ahead of half time. In the 59th minute, Franklin went on a run and was brought down in the area and Hayes coolly converted. Katie Lowder and Franklin combined well to get Hayes in to hit home her second and Destiney Toussaint made it six from a Vicky Gallagher pass. Brogan Jones completed the Foxes' scoring with a fierce 30-yard strike on 79 minutes before Rotherham scored their second late on when Natalie Shaw hit home.
Leicester lead on goal difference from Sporting Club Albion, who were 2-1 winners over Preston North End. A Sophie Le Gros own goal put Albion ahead and their lead was doubled by Emily Owen after the break. Jenna Carroll pulled a goal back for Preston with twelve minutes remaining but Albion held out to keep up their good run of form.
Sheffield FC had started the day as leaders but they are back in third after going down to a 2-0 defeat at home to Derby County. Marie Wayne gave Derby the lead five minutes before half time and Cara Newton wrapped up the win early in the second half.
Rochdale put distance between themselves and the bottom two by scoring eight without reply against Leeds City Vixens. Michelle Walsh gave Dale the lead and they added further goals before half time through Sophie Riley and Walsh again. Jade O'Connor and Riley increased their lead within ten minutes of the restart and Dale went on to seal the victory with further strikes from Chantelle Parry, O'Connor and Faye McCoy.
