Colchester Utd made the perfect start to life in the Premier League with a 4-2 victory away to Crystal Palace.
After Williams had given Palace the lead after just five minutes, the U's levelled the scores before half time when former Ipswich Town striker Helen Bass, the leading scorer in the South East Combination last season, lobbed home. Full back Hannah Porter put Colchester ahead after the interval with a 20-yard strike and, although Curtis soon equalised for Palace, Bass restored the U's lead from the penalty spot and Kate Longhurst wrapped up the victory late on when she headed home Porter's free kick.
Meanwhile Newquay's tough first match away to Millwall Lionesses saw them beaten 2-0, Pam McRoberts netting a goal in each half for the home side. Newquay did strike the woodwork but goalkeeper Sally Thompson also pulled off a number of good saves.
Barnet are another side who are expected to be among the challengers this year and they got off to a good start, winning 2-1 away to Brighton & Hove Albion. Stacey Sowden netted both of the Bees' goals in the opening fifteen minutes, Katie Hodges pulled one back on the half hour for Brighton but Barnet held on to take the points.
In each of the last two seasons, West Ham Utd have lost their opening three league games but this time they have made a winning start, 1-0 away to AFC Team Bath. Victoria King scored the only goal of the game for the Hammers, five minutes before half time.
Honours were even as Keynsham Town battled out a 1-1 draw with last season's runners-up Portsmouth. Kayleigh Sage gave Keynsham the lead with Gemma Hillier equalising for Pompey, however the match was marred as Keynsham striker Sheila Rocha suffered a bad head injury which saw her taken to hospital but thankfully has been discharged after an overnight stay.
