The Southern Division hosts took only 5 minutes to score as Helen Dermody's corner was headed in by Alison Hall.

Jade Formaston thumped in the second 5 minutes after the interval and hope of an Oxford comeback was thwarted by the post.

Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur 

Tottenham came out on top in the meeting of the FAWPL Northern and Southern leaders, coming from behind to beat hosts Blackburn with a stoppage-time decider.

Rovers took an early lead as Danielle Whitham's cross was finished at the far post by Ella Toone but Spurs were level on 19 minutes thanks to a Bianca Baptiste first-time lob.

Wendy Martin had a goal ruled out but in the dying moments nodded the ball through for Baptiste to cut inside and firing over Danielle Hill into the net.

Derby County 0-1 Nottingham Forest 

Nottingham Forest pulled off a 1-0 away victory in the very well-attended East Midlands clash at Derby.

Kelly Kennaugh made the decisive contribution, turning home Annabel McKechnie's whipped in corner.

The Rams went close to an equaliser but were kept out by Laura-Jane O'Neill's diving header, keeper Aja Aguirre tipping over a Natalie Reay effort and late on saving from Hannah Jones with Camilla Newton unable to net the rebound.

Millwall Lionesses 1-0 London Bees 

Just one goal in it too as Millwall won the all-WSL tie against London Bees.  

With 12 minutes played, Megan Wynne scrambled the ball home via a cross from Amber Gaylor.

The Lionesses went closest to doubling their advantage when Leighanne Robe's free kick delivered found Ashlee Hincks who slotted the ball just wide.

Charlton Athletic 0-2 Sheffield FC

Sheffield FC came through their visit to Charlton safely with a two-goal winning margin, both goals coming in the second period.

Sophie Jones eventually broke the deadlock when she headed home from Hannah Dale's free kick,

Kit Graham was denied a leveller by Jules Draycott and later had a chance headed off the line, before Natasha Flint fired home from 25 yards to extend the lead.

AFC Wimbledon 1-4 Brighton & Hove Albion

AFC Wimbledon had a big turnout for the visit of Brighton but the WSL newcomers proved too strong for the Dons.

Three goals in a 16-minute spell before the break saw Albion take control, with Ellie Dorey, Amy Taylor and Sophie Perry scoring, the latter with a penalty.

Hannah Searle pulled a goal back just after the hour mark but there was no further addition to the score until Lucy Somes got the fourth for the Seagulls 6 minutes from time.

West Bromwich Albion 3-1 Lewes 

West Brom saw off visitors Lewes by three goals to one but it was the Sussex side that struck first.

Danielle Lane nodded in from a corner but Trina Greaves brought the Baggies back on level terms by the half hour.

Greaves got her second after 63 minutes and substitute Leigh Dugmore sealed the win with 15 minutes to go.

Leicester City Women 2-1 Liverpool Marshall Feds 

Leicester had a narrow win over Northern Division 1 title hopefuls Liverpool Feds.

City opened the scoring on 9 minutes when Katie Waddell picked out Lauren Cartwright to race through and slot home.

The Feds hit the woodwork as they looked to reply but midway through the second half, Sophie Domingo broke away to net City's second from 18 yards.

A tense finish was set up as Feds pulled one back, despite two fine saves from Vanessa Kinnerley, as the third attempt beat her.

Brighouse Town 1-8 Everton 

Brighouse's biggest ever match brought them a 400+ crowd but former finalists Everton went away with a big win.

Simone Magill got a couple in the first half, Claudia Walker and Michelle Hinnigan taking the tally to four by the interval.

Brighouse's Annabelle Cass arrowed a powerful drive beyond Kirstie Levell to raise the spirits of the home crowd but debutant Olivia Chance scored twice, as did Walker to complete her hat-trick.

Aston Villa 7-1 Cambridge United

FAWPL South East Division 1 side Cambridge United succumbed 7-1 at Aston Villa. 

Chloe Jones rose high to head in the first, Beth Merrick netted from the edge of the box and Many Cusack made it 3-0 soon after. 

Cambridge got a goal back after the break through Becky Taylor but Mollie Rouse then twice netted from distance.

New signing Alice Hassall got off the mark for her new club, with Academy product Chloe Dale claiming her first seniors goal for Villa.

Keynsham Town 0-7 Durham

Durham cruised through 7-0 at Keynsham, where Zoe Ness and Sarah McFadden bagged a brace each.

Natalie Gutteridge made it 4-0 early in the second half, with Becky Salicki and Emily Roberts also getting on the scoresheet.
