Leeds Utd returned to the top of the National Division by running out 5-0 winners over Aston Villa.
Hayley Sharp put Leeds ahead in the sixteenth minute and Millie Bright added a second leading up to half time. Bright then added her second within a minute of the restart and substitute Tanya Rich wrapped up the win with two goals in a three minute spell.
Coventry City had started the day as leaders but are back in second place after they shared a goalless draw with Watford, who picked up their first point of the season. Both teams had chances to take all three points but found goalkeepers Lauren Davey and Sue Wood in excellent form (see match report).
Sunderland moved into third place, just two points off the pace, on the back of a 6-3 victory over Reading FC Women. Two identical goals from Rachel Furness put Sunderland into a two-goal lead before Nikki Watts' long range drive brought Reading back into the game just before half time. Beth Mead restored Sunderland's two-goal cushion ten minutes after the break but Watts slotted home hers and Reading's second to pull the game back to 3-2. Stacey Wiggins was then adjudged to have handled in the box and Kelly McDougall coolly stroked the ball home from the spot. Sophie Williams made it 5-2 eleven minutes later after a surging run and finish before substitute Kiera Ramshaw and Mead linked up well to give Nicola Devine the easiest of tap ins. Becky Jane halved the deficit in the dying minutes with a fine lob but it was Sunderland who walked away with all three points.
After four straight defeats, Nottingham Forest recorded their first points of the season when they defeated Barnet 3-0. After the first half ended goalless, Natasha Meade gave Forest the lead three minutes into the second half and Suzanne Davies doubled their advantage. Meade rounded off the win for Danny Johnson's side with her second goal, fifteen minutes from time.
