Caitlin Bates (2), Jessica Dawson and Jade Pye scored the goals for Hartlepool, with Norton's consolation on the day coming from Shannon Reed.

With Torquay still in the running for the runners-up spot, there was plenty to play for, buy goals from Amber Coates and Carla Staddon ensured that Buckland finish the season with a 100% record and will win the league by at least eleven points.

Exeter City follow on after a Lannece Hole hat-trick, Abbie Britton, Jana Richards, Millie Pearce and an own goal gave them a 7-3 victory over Middlezoy Rovers but they can no longer finish in the top three after going down 3-0 to Keynsham Town Development on Wednesday night. Erin Bloomfield was another hat-trick scorer along with Shannon Crouch (2), Amy Burge and Maisie Parker as Ilminster Town won 7-2 against AEK Boco, whose replies came from Sasha Ferris and Rebecca Watson.
