The other match in Group Three ended with honours even as Coventry City drew 1-1 with Aston Villa. Katy Ward gave Coventry the lead midway through the first half, Erin Vaughan equalising for Villa after the break.
Holly Sandow hit a hat-trick to send Barnet to the top of Group One, Alex Keown adding the other to give the Bees a 4-0 win over Colchester Utd.

The home side took a first half lead through Laura Walker but Curzon hit back after the break, Jodie Redgrave levelling the scores and Nicky Maylett snatching a winner with fifteen minutes remaining.

Sarah Kempson gave the Seagulls a half hour lead and, although Stef Simmons equalised for Charlton ten minutes into the second half, Kim Stenning went on to net the winning goal for Brighton. Millwall Lionesses looked to be on their way victory at Gillingham as Leah Jones and a Sian Cheedy own goal put them two ahead, but Ashlee Hincks and Natalie Crinean both struck to earn the Gills a share of the spoils.
Nottingham Forest were 4-1 winners over Derby County in their derby match to put themselves at the head of Group Five. Marie Wayne did give Derby a first half lead but Jemma Connor-Iommi levelled just ahead of half time and second half goals from Suzanne Davies, Lauren Cresswell and Ellie Gilliatt gave Forest the points.

Keri Ryan then gave Pompey the lead for the first time and they sealed victory three minutes from time through Molly Clark. In the other group game, Yeovil Town's first match at this level ended in a 2-0 defeat at home to top flight Reading FC Women, Mikaela Howell netting both goals during the first half.
Leeds City Vixens gained quick revenge for their defeat by Newcastle Utd in the league seven days earlier, to win their Group Seven meeting 4-1.
