OOH Lincoln gave their Northern Division title challenge a shot in the arm with a 2-1 victory over previously unbeaten Sunderland.
The sides produced an evenly matched contest in freezing conditions but, after their goalkeeper Kay Hawke had made a fine save from Sophie Williams early on, it was Lincoln who went ahead on the quarter hour as full back Sophie Krivinskas scored from the edge of the area.
After the break, Sunderland levelled the scores when Kelly McDougall released Williams on goal and she produced an accurate finish inside the far post but Lincoln were to have the final say, Carla Ward rising high to head in a Leandra Little cross and send her side to the top of the table, although Sunderland still possess three games in hand.
Manchester City remain in fourth place following their 1-1 draw away to Leicester City. Young striker Sarah Penney kept up her recent excellent form by giving City the lead midway through the first half, before Natalie Reay earned Leicester a share of the spoils by equalising shortly before the interval.
Reading FC Women are closing in on the top half, thanks to a 2-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday. Josette Pearmine gave Reading a first half lead, Natasha Caswell wrapping up the win with her 10th league goal of the season on the hour mark.
Two of the teams around the relegation zone came face to face and honours finished even as Rotherham Utd and Curzon Ashton shared a 2-2 draw. Helen Lynskey opened the scoring for Rotherham in the fourth minute but late goals from Kelly Dean and Carla Cleworth looked to have given Curzon three vital points. However Lynskey popped up in the dying minutes to net her second goal and move Rotherham up a place to ninth whilst Curzon are now second from bottom, level on points with Sheffield Wednesday.
The Southern Division was once again very badly affected by the weather and only one match managed to go ahead.
Cardiff City remain in second place after they drew 2-2 with Colchester Utd, who are out of the bottom three as a result. Natasha Harding got Cardiff off to a great start with a sixth minute goal, before Helen Bass levelled the scores ahead of the break. Midway through the second half, an own goal restored Cardiff's lead but Hannah Porter ensured the U's picked up a point by equalising just three minutes later.
