Northern Division One
One match was played in the division on Sunday but it produced a seven-goal thriller in which Stockport County defeated third placed Mossley Hill 4-3. Grace Campbell gave Stockport a first half lead which was cancelled out just before half time by Sophie Perry, before a frantic last twenty minutes produced five goals. Amy Smith and Chloe Mapp netted twice in quick succession for County, then Perry netted a second to renew hopes for Mossley. Georgia France scored a decisive fourth to give Stockport and although Mossley replied through Helen Griffiths, Stockport held on for three important points which lift them into a mid-table position.
Midlands Division One
Loughborough Foxes have gone six points clear at the top of the table after twice coming from behind to win 4-2 away to Mansfield Town. Jemma Douglas gave Mansfield a ninth minute lead which was cancelled out on the half hour by Jodie White, and the home side went back in front on the hour mark through Nicola Flood. The Foxes then hit back with two goals in a four minute spell from Vicky Brackenbury and Lauren Struszczak to lead for the first time and Emma Pilling made the game safe for the leaders, ten minutes from time.
Loughborough Students meanwhile moved into fifth place, their highest position of the season to date, thanks to a 1-0 victory over Leafield Athletic. Hayley James scored the only goal of the game to earn her side their fourth win in a row in all competitions.
South East Division One
In the only match to beat the weather on Sunday, Bedford Ladies made it three wins on the trot in the league and are up into the top half of the table for the first time after beating Enfield Town 3-1. Chelsea Hunter headed Bedford into a first half lead which was cancelled out from the penalty spot by Cally Browne early in the second half. Natasha Fensome was to put Bedford back in front and Rebecca Vass wrapped up the win with the third goal.
South West Division One
The title race has suddenly opened up again after leaders Swindon Town were deducted three points and Forest Green Rovers returned into second place with a 5-1 local derby victory over Cheltenham Town. Cheltenham led at half time through a goal from Emily Skipp but Forest Green hit back strongly after the break, Sammy Hallsworth hitting a hat-trick with Charlotte King and Ella Hitchcox joining her on the scoresheet to bring their side to within three points of the leadership.
Southampton Saints saw their hopes dealt a huge blow as they were beaten 1-0 by Larkhall Athletic. Kelly Cripps netted the only goal of the game for the Larks who remain in sixth.
