Doncaster Rovers Belles 1 (Pacheco 15)
Sunderland 4 (Williams 34, Holmes 39, McDougall 68, Hill 80)
Sunderland have taken a huge step towards securing their WSL 1 place next season with an emphatic victory at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Doncaster started well and were on the front foot for the first twenty minutes, rewarded for their efforts when Maz Pacheco tapped home her first goal for the club after Victoria Williams headed a cross against her own post.
But individual errors came back to bite Belles. Nicola Hobbs had previously made an outstanding save from Beth Mead but let Williams' shot slide underneath her for the leveller after brilliant work by Mead.
Mead was once again the provider for Abby Holmes to slam home an emphatic second before the visitors were awarded a penalty with just over twenty minutes to go. Hobbs redeemed herself by denying Mead but Kelly McDougall volleyed home the resulting corner.
There was time for a fourth when substitute Madelaine Hill made an instant impact, emphatically smashing the ball beyond Hobbs after another assist from Mead.
