Lori Hudson scored the only goal of the game early on.

Harworth had much the better of the play with their goalkeeper Julie Key rarely called upon.

Harworth moved eight points clear of second-placed Dronfield Town following their ninth victory from 12 games.

Harworth go to third-placed Rotherham United Whitehill on Sunday and conclude their season at home to AFC Bentley on April 10.

Six points from their last two games would put them out of reach of three other teams who could still finish top.
