Portsmouth's superb start to the season gathered further pace as they maintained their lead of two points with a 6-0 victory away to Millwall Lionesses.
Kirsty McGee gave Pompey the lead with a left foot strike and Gemma Hillier added the second from close range. Jemma Tewkesbury and Lindsey Roe scored either side of half time before Hillier completed her double and Lysette Russell finished off the scoring in the dying minutes.
Brighton & Hove Albion are the only team managing to keep pace with Portsmouth at the moment and they moved into second place by beating Plymouth Argyle 3-0. Kim Stenning sent the Seagulls into a twelfth minute lead and two Amy Found goals in a five minute spell after the break sealed the points for Brighton.
Colchester Utd swept to their first victory of the season, a 4-1 success away to Gillingham. Megan Jiggins put the U's ahead early on and an own goal doubled their lead on the half hour. With nine minutes remaining, Hannah Gowland added a third and, despite Dani Farmer pulled a goal back for the Gills, Maegen Doyle rounded off the scoring with the fourth goal for Colchester.
The game of the day came at West Ham Utd where visitors Keynsham Town returned home with a 4-3 win. Gemma Shepherd put the Hammers ahead after only 40 seconds but Keynsham were back on terms by the break through Juliana Da Silva, who then gave them the lead on the hour. Natalie Grafton equalised for West Ham before Louise Hutton headed Keynsham back in front. Shepherd looked to have earned the home side a point when she netted her second from the penalty spot but Da Silva had the final say by grabbing the winner and completing her hat-trick with a 25-yard strike seven minutes from time.
Tottenham Hotspur celebrated their first ever win in the Premier League, a 4-0 success away to Queen's Park Rangers. After Wendy Martin had given Spurs an early lead, Bianca Baptiste wrapped up the points by hitting a second half hat-trick.
