Hazel Musgrove's early strike for Liverpool was the only goal until Emma Bartlett equalised three minutes into the third period. A Manchester exclusion soon gave Kathryn Fowler the chance to edge Liverpool ahead again. And the champions then took charge in the final quarter, scoring four times without reply through Rachel Drabble, Fiona McCann, Katie Hesketh and Laura Hesketh to win 6-1.
Danielle Elliot scored four of Coventry's eight first quarter goals on the way to a 15-7 defeat of Caledonia.
In women's Championship 2, Devonport maintained a 100 per cent record with an 11-6 victory over Leeds Hammerheads, including five goals from Robyn Greenslade and three from Bethany Ward.
