Portsmouth kept up their excellent start to the season and stay as the early Southern Division leaders following their 4-0 victory away to Tottenham Hotspur
An own goal put Pompey ahead just after the half hour mark and Jemma Tewkesbury doubled their lead midway through the second half. Gemma Hillier had provided the second goal for Tewkesbury who returned the favour for the third and with three minutes left, Hillier completed her double by slotting home a Niamh Rawlins cross and rounding off a great victory for Vanessa Raynbird's side.
Pompey are the only team with maximum points from the opening two matches and newly promoted Plymouth Argyle are in second place after defeating Keynsham Town 3-1. Laura Perrett netted two first half goals for Argyle with Juliana Da Silva reducing the arrears on the stroke of half time. The game remained in the balance until late on when Tash Knapman scored a decisive third for Plymouth.
West Ham Utd are in third after also winning 3-1 in their local derby against Millwall Lionesses. Jess Barling gave the Hammers the lead on the half hour and Gemma Shepherd netted just ahead of the interval and despite Kasia Viggor pulling a goal back for Millwall midway through the second half, Kelley Blanchflower sealed the points for West Ham with the third goal.
Brighton & Hove Albion complete a trio of clubs on four points after coming from behind to beat Gillingham 2-1. Danielle Farmer put the Gills in front on 18 minutes but just seven minutes later, Amy Found levelled the scores for the Seagulls. Gemma Fraser secured victory for Brighton with the winning goal on the hour mark.
Colchester Utd and Queen's Park Rangers each got off the mark when battling out a 2-2 draw, meaning each team in the division has at least one point to their name. Zoe Rushen opened the scoring for the U's midway through the first half with Davina Smith levelling ahead of the interval. Katie O'Leary put Rangers in front from the penalty spot ten minutes after the restart, before Maegan Doyle ensured a share of the spoils for Colchester five minutes from time.
