Leaders Chichester City made it nine wins in ten matches when beating C & K Basildon 4-2 and this keeps them two points clear at the top of the table.
C & K led at the break through a Holly Turner goal but substitute Cherelle Khassal was a second half heroine for Chichester, marking her 50th appearance for the club by bagging a hat-trick, with an own goal completing their tally. Courtney Clark reduced the arrears late on but it could not prevent Chichester from notching up a fifth straight league win.
Coventry Utd made sure of keeping hard on Chichester's heels by running out 7-1 winners over Queen's Park Rangers. After Jo Wilson had given Rangers an early lead, Coventry hit back strongly with Maz Gauntlett and Shannon O'Brien ensuring they were in front at half time. After the break, Jade Brook, Lois Jefferies and Amber Hughes extended Coventry's lead before Amy Wathan rounded off the scoring with a late double.
Watford lost ground in third place when they went down to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Milton Keynes Dons. Leah Littlechild scored direct from a corner to give MK a first half lead which was doubled on the half hour by Eleanor Gough. Leah Cudone crowned an excellent day for the Dons six minutes from time when she netted their third goal, to round off their best result of the season so far.
Loughborough Foxes made it three wins on the trot with a 2-1 success against Portsmouth. An own goal sixteen minutes from time proved to be decisive in the Foxes' favour, Rebecca Knight having earlier scored for Loughbrough during the first half and Pompey replying through Rachel Panting.
Oxford Utd moved above Plymouth Argyle into fifth place after winning their meeting 2-1. The U's led at half time through an eleventh minute strike from Sophie Baker, with Katie Middleton equalising for Argyle three minutes into the second half. A well contested game looked to be heading towards a draw until four minutes from time, when Georgia Timms kept up Oxford's improving form by scoring the winning goal from the penalty spot.
