Leeds Carnegie ran out 5-0 winners at Nottingham Forest to go top of the National Division for the first time.
Sue Smith gave them the lead in the opening minute and Sophie Bradley netted twice, before Remi Allen added a fourth ten minutes ahead of half time. Jess Clarke completed the victory with the final goal, fifteen minutes from time.
A victory would have taken Chelsea top but instead they needed a fightback to earn themselves a 2-2 draw away to Doncaster Rovers Belles. The Belles raced into a two-goal lead thanks to Vicky Exley and Rachel Williams, with Stef Curtis halving the deficit on the half hour. Curtis then kept up her superb goalscoring form after the break, taking her tally to six in three games with an equaliser midway through the half.
Arsenal continue to close in and are just three points off the pace following their 4-1 victory at Bristol Academy. Gemma Davison gave the Gunners a sixth minute lead which was cancelled out by Sharla Passiarello, but Kim Little's left foot strike put Arsenal back in front ahead of the break. Academy battled very hard to stay in the game but their resistance was killed off as Katie Chapman headed in the third from Little's cross and Davison scored her second with a fine individual goal.
Sunderland claimed their fourth win of the season, 3-1 against Birmingham City. Jordan Nobbs gave them a first half lead with Natalie Gutteridge and Sophie Williams adding further goals after the break, before Michaela Howell scored a late consolation for the Blues.
Everton kept up their high scoring start to their campaign as they defeated Watford 5-0. Natasha Dowie opened the scoring against her former club with Emily Westwood, Jill Scott and Toni Duggan also on target before half time. Jody Handley rounded off the win with the fifth goal, midway through the second half.
