Everton clinched the WSL 2 Spring Series title in style when they won 4-0 against London Bees.
Needing a point going into the game, there was a scare early on when Sophie Fogarty hit the bar for the Bees but the Toffees went on to open the scoring via a deflected shot from Mollie Green and Michelle Hinnigan headed in the second. Claudia Walker extended Everton's lead from the penalty spot midway through the second half and the leading scorer rounded off her side's day by drilling home a 20-yard shot in injury time.
Doncaster Rovers Belles have taken the runners-up spot after also winning 4-0 at Oxford Utd. Christie Murray finished off a good move to give the Belles the lead and Kirsty Hanson lobbed home the second on the stroke of half time. Sophie Barker made it three early in the second half, with Rebecca Rayner completing the victory late on.
Millwall Lionesses complete the top three following their 2-1 success away to Watford on Saturday. After a goalless first half, Billie Brooks headed Millwall in front but Watford battled back strongly and equalised through Merrick Will with fifteen minutes remaining. Olesha Charles then hit the post for Watford but it was Millwall who were to have the final say and Ashlee Hincks grabbed a last minute winner to ensure that the Lionesses ended their season with five straight wins.
Durham Women had started the day in second place and looked to be on course for runners-up before a stunning comeback from Aston Villa gave them a 5-1 victory. It was Villa who took the lead through a Jade Richards goal but Durham replied with a Zoe Ness hat-trick which put them in front at the break. Beth Hepple then made it 4-1 from the penalty spot, with Richards heading in her second to give Villa hope. With six minutes remaining, Lucy Shepherd pulled another one back and Maddy Cusack equalised but Villa were not finished there - substitute Alys Hinchcliffe netted an injury time winner to round off a remarkable recovery and secure a result which means that Villa finish above the Wildcats in fourth.
Brighton & Hove Albion meanwhile ended their campaign on a winning note, beating Sheffield FC 3-1 at the Amex Stadium. Kate Natkiel scored the opening goal for the Seagulls midway through the first half and a Kenedy Owen own goal doubled their advantage on the half hour. Alessia Russo sealed the points with a late long range strike, before Carla Ward netted a late consolation from the penalty spot for Sheffield.
