Manchester Utd clinched the on Saturday afternoon as they scored seven times without reply past Crystal Palace.
Lauren James opened the scoring in the eighth minute and the second came just after the half hour when the unfortunate Hannah McKenzie diverted a cross into her own net. Leah Galton made it three two minutes later and the fourth came just seconds into the second half through Jess Sigsworth. James rounded off a great day for her club and on a personal note when she scored three times in six minutes late on, to complete a four-goal haul.
Tottenham Hotspur remain in the driving seat for second place but they needed to come from two goals behind to beat Charlton Athletic 3-2 and keep their promotion challenge on course. The Addicks needed to win to stay in the hunt and things were going well as Liz Ejupi and Kit Graham scored either side of half time. However, the game turned on a 53rd minute penalty, slotted home by leading scorer Rianna Dean after a foul on Angela Addison, before two corners, both headed in by Ashleigh Neville, put the seal on the fightback and kept her side four points ahead of third placed Durham Women.
Durham themselves maintained their hopes by beating Millwall Lionesses 1-0. The Wildcats dominated for long periods of the match but came up against a stubborn Millwall defence, with goalkeeper Rhiannon Stewart in excellent form. Durham winger Emily Roberts had earlier been denied by a brilliant save but she was to grab the vital goal, midway through the second half, when she curled home an unstoppable shot after a run which had taken her past three opponents.
Sheffield Utd's superb run of form is showing no signs of slowing up, beating London Bees 4-1 to make it five wins on the trot. United took the lead ten minutes before half time through Danielle Cox and after Ruesha Littlejohn had levelled the scores early in the second half, Veatriki Sarri put the Blades back in front two minutes later and they went on to crown the win with further goals from Rebecca Rayner and Jade Pennock.
Aston Villa had looked to be course for victory against Lewes, but a Rood awakening saw the Rookettes hit back for a point. Asmita Ale gave Villa an early lead when she scored from close range and Jodie Hutton drilled home the second, midway through the first half. Katie Rood reduced the arrears with a well taken goal just before half time and the striker earned her side a share of the spoils when she slotted home a low cross from Rosie Paye for the equaliser in injury time.
