Five different teams have won both of their opening games so far in the Northern Division.
The fledgling table is headed by Lincoln City who won 5-1 for the second successive week, this time at home to Sunderland. Jodie Snelson gave the Lady Imps a sixth minute lead from 25 yards and Stacey Aisthorpe quickly added a second. After the break, Aisthorpe completed her double before a Stephanie Bannon own goal and second from the prolific Snelson secured the points for Lincoln, Jessica Havelock grabbing a consolation for Sunderland four minutes from time.
Stockport County sit in second place following a 2-1 local derby victory over Crewe Alexandra. Stockport took the lead on 25 minutes when Keeleigh Savage got on to the end of a Kerry Jackson pass and fired a 20-yard shot into the roof of the Crewe goal. Dee Mannion headed a Krystal Johnson cross against the bar but County were two ahead early in the second half, 16-year-old Savage heading home her second goal from a Mannion corner. Emma Lambourne gave Crewe hope as she pulled one back just after the hour but Stockport held out to maintain their perfect start.
Aston Villa's good start continued as they came away from Manchester City with a 4-2 win. Hannah Smith and Hayley Packer gave Villa a two-goal half time lead which was quickly increased by Natalie Gibson, before Ellena Turner reduced the deficit on the hour. Cherelle Archibald restored Villa's advantage with Lindsay Savage scoring a late consolation for City.
Nottingham Forest possess exactly the same record as Villa after winning a high scoring affair 6-3 at Rotherham Utd. Kelly Finley and Catherine Lawson put Forest two ahead inside the opening six minutes, with Kerry Longstone pulling a goal back for the home side. Lawson then netted her second and Natalie Clarke added another just before the interval. Cath Stainthorpe made it five and, after Hayley Wood netted for Rotherham, Stainthorpe then scored Forest's sixth before Longstone grabbed the final goal in injury time.
Hannah Bailey was the hero as Preston North End also remain on maximum points, following a fine 3-1 success away to Newcastle Utd. Melanie Reay had given Newcastle an early lead but the former Blackburn winger scored a hat-trick to give her side the points.
Sheffield Wednesday claimed their first victory back in the Premier League in style, 4-0 at home to Tranmere Rovers. However it wasn't until the final quarter of the game that Wednesday struck, Sarah Smith giving them a 64th minute with the first of her two goals, Rachel Skeemer also weighing in with a double.
