Southern Division leaders Portsmouth went down to their first defeat of the season when they were beaten 2-1 at home by West Ham Utd.
Kelley Blanchflower netted a goal in each half for the Hammers, who climb into second place as a result, before Leeta Rutherford scored a late penalty for Pompey.
Brighton & Hove Albion had started the day in second but they were unable to take the opportunity to go level on points with Pompey as they also lost, 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur for whom Emma Plewa scored the only goal of the game.
Gillingham climbed into fourth, just three points off the pace, after they won 3-1 away to Keynsham Town. All of the Gills' goals came in the first half, Sarah Jones giving them the lead before they added further strikes from Lauren Phillips and Danni Farmer, before Ashley Reinecke grabbed a second half consolation for Keynsham.
Queen's Park Rangers survived a late fightback from Plymouth Argyle and held on for a 5-4 victory which takes them into mid-table. Cherrelle Albert's early goal for Rangers was cancelled out by Tash Knapman and, after Laura Perrett had put Plymouth in front, Seun Odeniyi levelled the scores on the stroke of half time. After the break, Odeniyi and Lisa Burrows netted in quick succession before Odeniyi completed her hat-trick just after the hour mark. Argyle then hit back with Katie Middleton and Knapman both finding the net but Rangers saw the game out for three important points.
Millwall Lionesses remain at the foot of the table but picked up their first win of the season, 3-2 against Colchester Utd. Kate Longhurst gave Colchester a first half lead against her former club and ten minutes after the break, Shauni Griffiths levelled the scores for Millwall. Angharad Chambers then put Millwall in front and an own goal from Isabel Kulinski equalised for the U's, but Kasia Viggor had the final say with a last minute goal for the Lionesses.
