Leicester City continue to lead the FA Women's Championship on goal difference after scoring seven times without reply past London Bees.
Two goals just before half time put Leicester in a strong position at the break, Millie Farrow giving them a lead which was quickly doubled by Lachante Paul. After the interval, Paul netted her second, before a quickfire brace from Shannon O'Brien left them five goals ahead. Natasha Flint then joined them on the scoresheet, with Esmee de Graaf rounding off the scoring four minutes from time.
Durham Women meanwhile won 2-0 away to Blackburn Rovers to ensure they stayed level on points with Leicester. In a tight first half, Leah Embley did have a goal disallowed for Rovers, who passed up a couple more opportunities to take the lead. The deadlock was broken midway through the second half when Bridget Galloway scored from close range, and with two minutes remaining, Sarah Robson made the points safe for the Wildcats with the second.
Liverpool have gone level on points with third placed Sheffield Utd, thanks to a 1-0 success at Crystal Palace. A closely contested encounter was decided on 65 minutes, when Niamh Fahey headed in the only goal of the game from a corner.
Charlton Athletic picked up another valuable point as they shared a 1-1 draw with Lewes. The Addicks did take the lead early in the second half through Jess King, in their quest for a second straight win, but the Rookettes hit back four minutes later to earn themselves a share of the spoils, thanks to a well taken equaliser from Ini Umotong, who kept up her recent good form.
After having gone bottom of the table the previous Sunday, Coventry Utd bounced back straight away to move back up a place as they beat London City Lionesses 1-0. The all important goal for Coventry came midway through the first half, via a thumping 30-yard strike from Hayley Crackle.
