Brighton & Hove Albion held on to the leadership of the Southern Division despite going down to a 2-1 defeat at home to Gillingham.
Kim Stenning had sent the Seagulls into a twelfth minute lead but the Gills hit back through Danielle Carlton and Katie Hardaker notched the winner just before the hour mark.
Colchester Utd lifted themselves into second place, one point behind Brighton, thanks to a 2-1 win away to Queen's Park Rangers. First half strikes from Helen Bass and Kate Longhurst secured the points for the U's, despite Sarah Staples pulling a goal back for Rangers after the break.
Portsmouth moved back into the top three by beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-1. Spurs did take a first minute lead through Jessica Cheeseman, which they held until the half hour when Charley Wilson finished off a good move. The decisive moment came on 72 minutes when Jade Kirby set up Shelly Cox to fire home the winning goal for Pompey.
West Ham Utd would have gone top of the table with a victory but instead they are in fourth place after battling out a goalless draw with Millwall Lionesses. A tightly contested local derby ended with honours even, the Hammers going closest when Jess Barling struck the post direct from a corner whilst Kasia Viggor almost snatched victory for the Lionesses in the dying minutes.
There were plenty of goals on display as Keynsham Town picked up their first home victory of the season with an 8-2 success over Plymouth Argyle. Kayleigh Sage hit a first half hat-trick with Leanne Lapham and Candy Hopson, via a 35-yard strike, also netting for Keynsham while Tash Knapman replied at the other end. Kelly Aldridge increased Keynsham's lead and, after Laura Perrett had reduced the arrears from the penalty spot, Lapham and substitute Audrey Moore completed the scoring for the home side.
