The National Division table is taking on a congested look following the results on Sunday.
Just five points now covers the top eight teams with the two title favourites, Arsenal and Everton, following on just behind with several games in hand.
Millwall Lionesses are still three points ahead despite going down to a 5-0 defeat at home to Everton. Natasha Dowie netted the opening two goals with Jody Handley adding a third on the stroke of half time. After the break, Dowie duly completed her hat-trick before Toni Duggan completed the scoring.
Nottingham Forest are back in second place after they came away from Blackburn Rovers with a 1-0 victory. Levi Penny netted the only goal of the game against her former club, early in the second half.
Bristol Academy registered their first win and points of the season, 2-0 against third placed Watford. 17-year-old striker Sharla Passiarello netted both goals in the first half for Academy who also kept their first clean sheet of the season, Watford going closest with an Annie Barratt free kick which struck the bar.
Chelsea climbed into fourth after beating Sunderland 3-1. All of the goals came in the second half, Stef Curtis giving Chelsea the lead before further goals came from Danielle Buet and Sarah Kempson, with Kelly McDougall scoring a late consolation for the Wearsiders.
There were also a number of late goals on view as Leeds Carnegie defeated Birmingham City 4-2. Carla Cantrell gave Leeds a first half lead which was doubled by Ellen White, with Kerry Bartlett halving the deficit fourteen minutes from time. White went on to complete her hat-trick with two further strikes, either side of a goal from Dannii Bird.
Arsenal took their awesome goalscoring form in Europe into the Premier League by running out 8-1 winners over Doncaster Rovers Belles. Gemma Davison put the Gunners in front with Liz Hansen equalising, but Davison quickly restored Arsenal's lead before Kim Little, Faye White and Rachel Yankey all found the net before half time. Helen Lander added the sixth just after the hour with Little netting her second and Jennifer Beattie completing the scoring.
