Northern Division One
Guiseley Vixens now have a lead of thirteen points at the top of the table following their 6-2 victory over second placed Hull City. Chantelle O'Hara led the scoring for the title winners with a hat-trick and also on target were Sarah Danby, Danica Roberts and Natalie Brace, with Rebecca Beech and Alice Stewart replying.
There was better news for Hull though, as Liverpool Marshalls Feds went down to a 3-2 defeat at home to Chester-le-Street Town, leaving Hull in the driving seat for second place. Chloe Johnson netted twice and Nichole Goundry-Havery the other for the Cestrians, who move into fourth, one place below the Feds who responded through Laura Bartup and Lynsey Longhurst.
Morecambe meanwhile returned from Leeds Ladies with a 2-1 win under their belts. Melissa Brown and Emma Kay were on target for the Lancashire side, while Leeds' consolation goal came from Veatriki Sarri.
Midlands Division One
Loughborough Foxes stay on top of the table by a point but a midweek defeat to Radcliffe Olympic might turn out to be fatal to their title chances. They bounced back to notch up a fine 5-3 win away to TNS Ladies on Sunday, Emma Pilling netting twice along with Siobhan Eastham, Lindsey Tugby and Chloe Young. Charlotte Canlett, Laura Morris and Emily Ridge were all on target for TNS who stay in fourth and can still challenge for the top three.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have matters in their hands and if they can pick up maximum points from their final two games, they will be crowned as Champions. They kept themselves on course by running out 5-1 winners away to Steel City Wanderers, courtesy of an Amber Quick hat-trick and Jade Cross double, with Sarah Middleton grabbing a consolation for the Steels.
Neither Birmingham & West Midlands or Radcliffe Olympic had drawn a single league game this season ahead of their meeting on Sunday, so perhaps, inevitably, the game ended in a 1-1 draw. Both goals came during the first half, Kennesha Nanette netting for BWM and Radcliffe replying through Alina Tebbutt.
Leicester City Women climbed out of the bottom two on the back of a 2-1 victory over Solihull Ladies. After a goalless first half, Lois Jeffries gave Solihull the lead just before the hour mark but Leicester hit back to claim three precious points, thanks to two goals from Carmelina Colange.
South East Division One
Gillingham march on after winning the title and have a lead of fourteen points following their 2-1 success away to Cambridge Utd, whose hopes of the runners-up position took a knock. Late goals from Fliss Gibbons and Charlotte Gurr kept the Gills' winning run going, with Cambridge replying through Laura Mills.
Milton Keynes Dons won 2-1 at Enfield Town and have moved back into second place. Hannah Barrett and Tayla Duffy were on target for the Dons, whilst Enfield's consolation came from Juliet Thomas.
Luton Town moved back into fifth by winning 3-0 away to Lowestoft Town. Jess McKay bagged a brace and Asia Brown added the other for Luton who can still mathematically finish in the top three, whilst Lowestoft can no longer climb out of the bottom two.
Actonians Ladies will finish in the top two but they went down 2-1 at home to Ipswich Town, who are ending the season in good form. Jade Henry and Sophie Welton were the markswomen for Ipswich, with Melissa Jung replying.
Norwich City completed a perfect day for the visiting teams when they defeated Denham Utd 4-2 to keep their survival hopes alive. Two own goals helped the Canaries on their way to the points, with Chelsea Garrett and Paige Shorten also on target, Denham finding the net through Rebecca French and Aimee Durn.
South West Division One
Plymouth Argyle clinched the runners-up position behind Champions Chichester City with a 3-1 victory away to Keynsham Town. The home side led at the break through an early goal from Stephane Souza Nascimento but a second half hat-trick from Tori Marks ended Keynsham's eight match unbeaten run at home and gave Argyle the result they needed for second place.
Southampton Saints have moved back into the top three after winning 3-0 at Cheltenham Town. After a goalless first half, Becki Bath netted twice and Emma King added the other goal for Southampton.
Brislington will finish in the top half in their first season in the league after narrowly getting the better of Maidenhead Utd by the odd goal in nine. Polly Wardle led the scoring with a hat-trick while Sophie Whelan and Georgia Vandries were also on target, Rachel Panting hitting a hat-trick in reply along with Lucy Smith.
Basingstoke Town recorded their fourth victory of the season when beating St Nicholas 2-0, Helen Ogle netting a goal in each half for the Hampshire side.
