A Laura Dabner hat-trick helped Coastal Spirit seal the Mainland Football women's premier league today.

Coastal Spirit were far too strong for University 5-0 and their 12 point competition lead can not be overtaken.

Coastal Spirit are unbeaten this season and that record was never in threat as they cruised out to a 4-0 halftime lead.

Their nearest rivals, Western, were thrashed 6-1 by FC Twenty11 keeping the battle for second tight.

FC Twenty11 are just two points behind Western now and Cashmere Technical, who beat Halswell 4-2, are a further three back.

In the men's competition, the top four sides all had wins meaning Ferrymead Bays moved closer to the title.

They beat Western 4-0 while closest rivals Cashmere Technical and Nelson Suburbs both won too.

Cashmere Tech had the biggest win of the season with former Canterbury and Otago player Nathan Knox scoring a hat-trick in the 6-0 rout over FC Twenty11.

Nelson Suburbs kept their slim hopes of a title alive with a late winner to Jordan Swaney as Suburbs beat Christchurch United 1-0 and fourth placed Coastal Spirit beat Halswell 1-0.
