Durham defeated London City Lionesses 3-0, Rio Hardy, Beth Hepple and Sarah Robson the scorers.
Birmingham City went fourth with a narrow win at Coventry United, where Martha Harris headed in Harriet Scott’s cross.
Sunderland’s draw at Charlton saw the Addicks drop to fourth. Jessica Brown scored after the hour mark for the Black Cats and although a quickfire double from Melissa Johnson saw Charlton take the lead, substitute Grace McCatty equalised in stoppage time.
Lewes won at Bramall Lane with Ellie Mason’s second-half brace, Kirsty Barton having earlier equalised after Courtney Sweetman-Kirk’s opener. Naomi Hartley had volleyed the Blades back on terms at 2-2.
Crystal Palace edged Blackburn Rovers with a Molly Sharpe shot just before the break.
