It was a good night on Wednesday for WSL 2 leaders Doncaster Rovers Belles as they stretched their lead to three points with a 4-0 victory away to Aston Villa.
The Belles led at the break through a header from Rhiannon Roberts and second half strikes from Rebecca Rayner, Jess Sigsworth and Kirsty Hanson completed a convincing victory.
Millwall Lionesses stay unbeaten in second place but lost a little ground on Doncaster as they shared a 1-1 draw with London Bees. Taylor O'Leary put the Bees in front in the tenth minute with a firm header and Rianna Dean quickly equalised at the other end, and in a well fought local derby, both teams went close in an end-to-end game but ultimately had to settle for a point apiece.
On Thursday night, Brighton & Hove Albion consolidated themselves in third place by beating Oxford Utd 5-1. Kate Natkiel opened the scoring for the Seagulls with four minutes on the clock and Aileen Whelan made it two just before the half hour. Chloe Chivers reduced the arrears after the break with a long range strike but Whelan netted her second midway through the second half and, after Ini Umotong had increased Brighton's lead with a solo effort, Whelan rounded off the win when she volleyed in her hat-trick goal with six minutes remaining.
Durham Women got back to winning ways in the league with a 3-2 success against Sheffield FC. Beth Hepple opened the scoring, direct from a corner on 32 minutes, and two goals in a minute during the second half from Nicki Gears and Emily Roberts appeared to have put the Wildcats in control. However, Sheffield had other ideas with Katie Anderson pulling a goal back and Melissa Johnson made it an uncomfortable last nine minutes for the home side, but they held on for three hard earned points.
Tottenham Hotspur claimed their second win in successive matches when scoring six times without reply past Watford. Sarah Wiltshire netted twice and Lucia Leon the other as Spurs led by three at the break and in the second half, Wiltshire completed her hat-trick against her old club before Bianca Baptiste added two further goals late on.
