Sheffield FC have retained the Northern Division title after they won 5-0 away to Preston North End and other results went their way on Sunday.
Jodie Michalska opened the scoring for Sheffield in the third minute with Leanne De Silva adding the second soon afterwards, before Michalska grabbed her second just ahead of half time. Two goals in three second half minutes rounded off the win for the newly crowned Champions, a Carly Bayley own goal putting them further ahead and then Michalska completed her hat-trick, which returns her to the top of the division's scoring charts.
Nottingham Forest's challenge came to an end as they went down to a surprise 2-1 defeat at home to bottom of the table Wolverhampton Wanderers, who gave their survival hopes a huge shot in the arm. All of the goals came during the first half, Leanne Rimmer giving Wolves a sixth minute lead with a spectacular 30-yard volley - her first senior goal for ten years - with Andi Bell equalising just after the quarter hour. Dani Selmes then scored her ninth league goal of the season to take Wolves to within one point of safety.
Sheffield were therefore confirmed as Champions with the news that Stoke City had also been beaten, 2-1 at fourth placed Sporting Club Albion. Kayleigh Griffiths kept up her recent good form by netting both goals for Albion.
Bradford City bounced back from defeat seven days earlier to win 2-0 against Newcastle Utd and keep themselves in the running for a top three finish. Charlotte Stuart opened the scoring for City on the half hour and Jodie Redgrave wrapped up the points with the second goal, ten minutes into the second half.
Leeds Utd met Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road in a crucial match at the wrong end of the table and the Lancashire side would have been the happier of the two sides following the resulting 1-1 draw. In front of an attendance of 599, Emma Bentley gave Leeds a first half lead with Blackburn hitting back after the break and equalising through Nichol Forster.
