Doncaster Rovers Belles were confirmed as FA WSL 2 Champions before the start of their match with Millwall Lionesses on Sunday, after second placed Brighton & Hove Albion were beaten 4-0 by Durham Women.
Zoe Ness and Nicki Gears put the Wildcats two goals ahead, before Emily Roberts added a second half brace.
This meant that the Belles were out of reach going into their game at Millwall, landing their first league title for 24 years, and the resulting 1-0 victory means they have a seven point lead at the top of the table. Jade Pennock scored the only goal of the game with a deflected effort to inflict a first home defeat on Millwall since February 2017.
Two of the division's form teams met each other in a mid-table clash with London Bees and Sheffield FC battling out a goalless draw. Both teams went close during the course of the match, the Bees coming closest of all with a Katie Wilkinson header which was brilliantly saved by Danielle Gibbons.
Sheffield followed this up in midweek with a 5-0 win away to Watford, which practically guarantees them a top half finish. The first half was goalless but Hannah Cain broke the deadlock early in the second half and Melissa Johnson added a second with just over twenty minutes remaining. In the final six minutes, Ellie Gilliatt hit a hat-trick to crown the victory.
Aston Villa enhanced their chances of climbing out of the bottom two with a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur. Jenna Schillaci scored direct from a corner to give Tottenham the lead just before half time but Villa hit back in the second half and earned themselves a point when Elisha N'Dow headed in from close range.
Prior to their game with Sheffield, Watford had celebrated their first league victory of the season when they came from behind to win 2-1 at Oxford Utd. An own goal from the unfortunate Frances Kitching gave Oxford a lead on the quarter hour but Watford quickly hit back to equalise through Helen Ward and Simona Petkova netted the winning goal, midway through the second half.
