The only match at Combination level to be played over the weekend was on the 3G astroturf pitch at Crown Field where Keynsham Town Development played host to Forest Green Rovers.
Needing a win to move themselves into third place and maintain their title challenge, Forest Green went into the lead during the first half when captain Kirsty Richardson slotted home from the penalty spot.
After the break, Richardson kept up her good recent goalscoring form by doubling her side's lead through a 25-yard strike. Prompted by the impressive Paige Stewart in midfield, Forest Green sought more goals but could not add to their lead.
Keynsham gave themselves renewed hope with eight minutes remaining as Kayleigh Sage headed in from a free kick and the home side pressed hard for a second goal which would earn them a precious point. However Forest Green got over their wobble and, although Charlotte King and Ella Hitchcox both went close late on, settled for a 2-1 win.
