Portsmouth have won the Southern Division title for the second time and go into a play-off for a WSL place following their 3-1 win against West Ham Utd.
Pompey needed to avoid defeat in order to put themselves beyond the reach of Brighton & Hove Albion and in front of a large and expectant crowd at Gosport, Sarah Kempson settled nerves in the eighteenth minute when she gave them the lead from the penalty spot. Jess Frampton fired in a second from long range and Gemma Hillier made it three from a Charley Wilson cross. Stacey Little pulled a goal back for the Hammers just before half time but Portsmouth did enough during the second half to ensure there were no more worries and celebrations began at the final whistle.
Cardiff City Ladies pulled off a stunning 4-1 victory away to Charlton Athletic and, despite finishing their fixtures, still have a mathematical chance of pipping the Addicks to a top three place. Laura Williams, Hope Suominen, Cori Williams and Kerry Bartlett all scored a goal apiece for the South Wales side, with Kit Graham netting Charlton's consolation - her 29th league goal of the season.
Queen's Park Rangers can still claim a mid-table place after their clash with Plymouth Argyle finished level at 1-1. Elly Maggs gave Rangers the lead on the half hour, with Jodie Chubb earning Argyle a share of the spoils by equalising ten minutes into the second half.
After spending several months inside the bottom two, Copsewood (Coventry) achieved survival with a game to spare after they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-1. It was Spurs who opened the scoring through Wendy Martin but Nicola Foskett hit back to level the scores ten minutes later and an own goal put Copsewood in front just before the interval. Foskett wrapped up the win with her second goal to ensure that Copsewood will be playing Southern Division football again next season.
