Champions Sunderland have gone top of the National Division after they defeated Barnet 2-1.
Beth Mead gave the Wearsiders a fifth minute lead as she latched onto a Kiera Ramshaw pass and scored at the second attempt. The same combination led to Sunderland going further ahead just before half time, Mead again finishing off after being fed by Ramshaw.
Barnet fought back after the break with Stacey Sowden being denied by a good save from Helen Alderson, then Cheryl Williams reduced the arrears from a free kick. Both Williams and Leah Jones hit the woodwork late on as Barnet sought an equaliser but Sunderland held on to take the points.
Reading FC Women had started the day as leaders but they were beaten 5-3 by Charlton Athletic, who move into second. Remarkably all eight goals came in the second half, Fliss Gibbons and Gemma Bryan putting the Addicks two up inside the opening five minutes with Stacey Wiggins replying for the home side. Kim Dixson netted for Charlton and Alice Palmer responded for Reading, before substitute Jenny Newman scored twice to put the Addicks in control, despite Nikki Watts grabbing a late consolation for Reading.
Leeds Utd also surrendered their 100% record as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Coventry City. Maz Gauntlett fired the Sky Blues into a fourth minute with a well executed shot on the turn and Coventry defended well from that point to keep Leeds at bay and record their second straight victory.
Aston Villa recorded their first victory back in the National Division, beating Watford 4-0. Jade Richards headed Villa in front in the sixteenth minute and they doubled their lead early in the second half, Katy Moran netting from close range. Ini Umotong added the third and Lou Fellows rounded off the victory.
