Sheffield FC have opened up a seven point advantage at the head of the Northern Division following their 3-2 success away to Leeds Utd.
It was Leeds who got off to a good start, taking a tenth minute lead through Danielle Whitham, but Sheffield hit back dramatically with three goals in a ten-minute spell. First Carla Ward equalised and then Issy Hayes and Jodie Michalska ensured that Helen Mitchell's side were two goals ahead with one quarter of the match played. Leeds gave themselves renewed hope when Carey Huegett pulled one back midway through the second half but Sheffield held on for the win and a commanding lead over their nearest rivals.
Wolverhampton Wanderers meanwhile pulled off their best result of the season to date, winning 5-2 at Newcastle Utd to halve the gap on the teams immediately above them. Dani Selmes gave Wolves the lead on seventeen minutes but then Natalie Henderson and Beth Gardner both scored to put Newcastle in front. The game was turned on its head in the three minutes leading up to half time when Selmes restored Wolves' advantage by netting twice to complete her hat-trick. On the hour mark, Selmes found the net for a fourth time to increase her side's lead and then she turned provider to set up Jamillah Palmer for the final goal.
