Charlton Athletic have opened up a lead of five points at the top of the Southern Division following their 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion.
Two goals from Pam McRoberts shortly before half time ensured that the Addicks picked up their fifth win in sixth matches.
West Ham Utd now head the chasing teams, moving themselves into second place by running out 6-1 winners away to Truro City. In-form striker Sam Pittuck scored a hat-trick inside the opening half hour and Lindsey Morgan added a fourth shortly before the break. Pittuck went on to bag a five-goal haul in total to round off the scoring for the Hammers, before Dani Barr grabbed a late consolation for the Cornish side.
Keynsham Town were beaten for the second time in five days, going down 3-1 at home to Colchester Utd. The Somerset side went in front midway through the first half when Frankie Stone bundled in a Helen Bleazard cross from close range but after the break, the U's hit back with Kate Longhurst levelling the scores. Hannah Porter then put Colchester ahead before Longhurst sealed the victory with the third goal.
For the second week running, Portsmouth were involved in a high scoring thriller and their 4-3 win away to Barnet has taken them into fourth place. An early goal for Stacey Sowden was cancelled out on the half hour by Lisa Langrish but it was in the final quarter of the game which saw a flurry of goals. Gemma Ritchie put Pompey ahead before an own goal and Danielle Murphy turned things in Barnet's favour, but Leeta Rutherford and Langrish then struck to give the points to Portsmouth.
Improving Cardiff City are up into the top half after they recorded their second win in a week, 3-0 at Ipswich Town. Jordan Frayne gave them the lead on the half hour with Sophie Ingle adding a second before half time, and Zoe Atkins wrapped up the win with fifteen minutes remaining.
