Newcastle Utd and Sheffield FC battled out a 1-1 draw in the Northern Division, a result which means that Sheffield were unable to displace Bradford City from the top of the table and remain in second on goal difference. Newcastle did lead for the vast majority of the game after Jade Anderson had given them an eighteenth minute lead but Sheffield pegged them back in injury time when Ashton Crouch grabbed an equaliser.
It was a local derby day in the Midland Division as the all-Leicester clash was the only match to make it through the bad weather. It turned out to be a good day for Leicester City Women as they ran out 7-0 winners over Leicester City Ladies to catch up ground on the top three. Jessica Keeling opened the scoring on the quarter hour before Abbie Hinton contributed a brace ahead of half time. After the break, Eleanor Towers increased their lead, then Kayleigh Needham and Kim Farrow added further goals before Towers netted her second late on.
The weather claimed a number of victims including the Reserve Section League Cup quarter final between Cardiff City Ladies and Coventry City, which has now been put back to next week, as well as the Southern Division top of the table clash in which Brighton & Hove Albion were due to take on Charlton Athletic.
It was the same story in the FA WSL Development League as the scheduled fixtures were decimated on the teams' return to action following the mid-season break, with only two matches managing to go ahead in the Northern Division.
Manchester City have opened up a three point lead at the top of the table after winning 3-0 away to second placed Aston Villa. Alice Hey led the scoring for City with a brace of goals and Natasha Flint was also on target. Meanwhile Doncaster Rovers Belles registered their first points of the season when beating Durham Women 4-3. However the Belles needed to withstand a second half fightback from the visitors, having led by three goals at one stage. Lucy Sowerby scored either side of a goal from Jemma Purfield and Emma Johnson grabbed what proved to be the winning goal, with Stacy Crooks hitting a hat-trick in reply for Durham.
