Fareham ladies and their Southampton counterparts are jostling for third place in the South Women's League Division 3B, but both trail unbeaten leaders Eastbourne by five points.
Benefitting from an early Nat Romain strike, Southampton swept to a 5-1 win over Chichester at the Sports Centre.
Lou Hopkins doubled Southampton’s lead before Chichester pulled one back just before half-time. But a Zoe Stride brace and a late Sue Merry penalty stroke ensured an emphatic Southampton win.
Beaten 1-0 by Southampton the previous week, Fareham also went nap, with Vicky Field (2), Gracie Coleman, Tara Jolly and Laura Pendleton, with a drag scoop, on target in the 5-2 win at Horsham.
