WFC Fulham's lead in the Southern Division was reduced to three points after they were held to a 2-2 draw by fellow challengers Millwall Lionesses.
Leah Jones gave Fulham an early lead which was quickly cancelled out by Ellie Stenning, but Susannah Abbott put the league leaders back in front at the interval. However just after the hour mark, Harley Bennett scored to give Millwall an important point and halt Fulham's nine match winning run.
Barnet were one of the teams which narrowed the gap, thanks to a 5-1 victory over Crystal Palace. Gemma Shepherd, Stacey Sowden and Gemma Rudman all found the net for Barnet in the first half, with Natalie Curtis replying for Palace from the penalty spot. After the break, Rudman netted her second goal and Davina Smith rounded off the scoring.
Portsmouth also kept up their challenge by scoring five without reply against AFC Team Bath. Zoe Nash and Kirsty McGee put Pompey two ahead at the interval but it wasn't until the final fifteen minutes that they added the other goals through Leeta Rutherford, Molly Clark and Fiona McMillan.
Brighton & Hove Albion almost claimed their third victory in a row but were checked by a late equaliser from Newquay. Tammy Waine kept up her fine recent form by giving the Seagulls the lead on the hour, with Leanne Lapham making sure that Newquay made the long journey home with a point under their belts.
Improving West Ham Utd claimed an impressive 2-0 victory away to Keynsham Town to move towards a mid-table position. Katy Ling opened the scoring for the Hammers with a neat finish and Sam Pittuck added the second after springing the Keynsham offside trap. In the second half, West Ham withstood Keynsham pressure to hold on to their lead and almost added a third late on but Natalie Crinean was denied by a great save from Linette Newton.
Colchester Utd added to Reading Royals' woes with a 6-1 win, after inflicting the major damage in the early stages. Helen Bass struck twice and Emma Dunmore also struck to put the U's three ahead in the opening eleven minutes and, despite Claire Jones pulling one back for the Royals, Bass went on to complete her hat-trick and Kate Longhurst added a double.
