Surprise package Millwall Lionesses went three points clear at the top of the National Division with a 2-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Lindsey Morgan gave the newly promoted side the lead midway through the first half and they wrapped up the points late on with a goal from Ann Marie Heatherson.
Watford remain in second place despite going down to a 7-0 defeat at home to Chelsea who began the campaign in style. Casey Stoney had a great day as she scored a hat-trick and there was a goal apiece from Dunia Susi, Claire Rafferty, Sarah Kempson and Emma Whitter.
Reigning Champions Arsenal also belatedly started their season with a victory but were made to work very hard for their 1-0 success away to Birmingham City. The only goal of the game was scored by Kim Little in the second minute but the Gunners needed to withstand second half pressure from the Blues to hold on for the points.
Everton opened up by scoring six without reply against third placed Nottingham Forest. Emily Westwood was on target twice inside the opening half hour, with Gwennan Harries and Natasha Dowie adding further goals ahead of the interval. Fern Whelan and Fara Williams rounded off the win with strikes in the second half.
Carla Cantrell had a great day for Leeds Carnegie as they ran out 4-0 winners away to Bristol Academy. The England hopeful netted all four goals in a match which was closer overall than the scoreline suggested. Cantrell put Leeds ahead in the second minute but Academy almost equalised after the break when a free kick from Katie Daley hit the post. Cantrell took advantage of a defensive mix-up to score her second and she completed her hat-trick from the penalty spot after Ellen White had been fouled by Grace McCatty. Cantrell rounded off her day by burying a superb shot from the edge of the area into the far top corner, five minutes from time.
Blackburn Rovers claimed their first victory of the season, 2-1 at Sunderland. Natalie Preston and Katie Anderton sent Rovers into a two-goal lead at the break and, although Sophie Williams pulled a goal back for the home side, they held on to gain a much needed win.
