Portsmouth got back to winning ways and maintained their three point lead at the top of the Southern Division with a 5-1 win away to Plymouth Argyle.
Jemma Tewkesbury fired Pompey ahead in the first half and Gemma Hillier added a second ahead of the interval. After the restart, Lindsey Roe increased Portsmouth's lead and in-form Hillier completed her double. Anusia Rourke pulled a goal back for Plymouth but Charley Wilson rounded off the scoring for Pompey with the fifth goal.
Brighton & Hove Albion reclaimed second place with a hard fought 3-2 victory over West Ham Utd. Kim Whitcombe's early strike for Brighton was cancelled out by Kelley Blanchflower and Becky Merritt put the Hammers ahead early in the second half. Amy Found levelled the scores once more before Briony Parks settled matters with the winning goal, nine minutes from time.
Colchester Utd occupy third place following their 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur. Derrie O'Halloran gave Spurs a first half lead which they held until twelve minutes from time, when Maegen Doyle earned Colchester a share of the spoils.
Gillingham leapt into the top half as they picked up an important 2-1 win against Millwall Lionesses, who are still seeking their first victory of the season. Vicky Ashton-Jones secured the points with a goal in each half, with Millwall's consolation coming via a 30-yard strike from Snezana Malesevic.
Keynsham Town played their first ever match on their brand new third generation playing surface at the Crown Field and battled out a goalless draw with Queen's Park Rangers. Keynsham struck the woodwork twice during the course of the game and Kayleigh Sage went close late on but Rangers defended stoutly to earn themselves a point and could have snatched all three late on when Amber Thornell denied Cherrelle Albert.
