Doncaster Rovers Belles 4 (England 42, Smith 68,75, Knight 81) Millwall Lionesses 0
The Belles fell short of the FA WSL 2 title despite a 4-0 victory over Millwall Lionesses at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Beth England's header in the 41st minute briefly put Doncaster top of the league, but two minutes later news came through that Reading had also taken the lead.
The Belles responded to Reading's second goal by doubling their lead through Sue Smith after Dionne Lennon blocked England's initial effort on 68 minutes. Former England winger Smith made it 3-0 six minutes later, getting onto a good through ball and dinking over Sarah Quantrill to score.
The Lionesses temporarily staved off Donny's attempts at a fourth, with top scorer Courtney Sweetman-Kirk unable to convert after Quantrill saved well from England.
But there was no stopping substitute Hope Knight as the siege on Quantrill's goal continued nine minutes from time, with the winger bundling home at the far post.
