A 2-0 win away to Keynsham Town has returned Portsmouth to the top of the Southern Division on goal difference.
Shelly Cox fired Pompey ahead and there were opportunities for both teams at either end before Charley Wilson diverted in a shot from Leeta Rutherford to secure the points for Vanessa Raynbird's side.
West Ham Utd are now in second place after they also won on their travels, 2-1 at Plymouth Argyle. Both of the Hammers' goals came in the opening fifteen minutes, Gemma Shepherd netting on both occasions to take her tally to nine for the season. Plymouth pulled a goal back in injury time when Katie Middleton's pass released Laura Perrett to cross for leading scorer Tash Knapman to volley home a consolation.
Two of the other main contenders, Brighton & Hove Albion and Colchester Utd, met each other and honours were shared as they finished level at 2-2. Kim Whitcombe gave Brighton an eighth minute lead which was cancelled out ten minutes later by Kate Longhurst, with Alex Shepherd putting the U's in front before the break. Substitute Kirsty Barton netted an equaliser five minutes from time for Brighton to leave her side fourth, one place and two points behind Colchester.
The top five teams in the table have broken away from the others and Gillingham have tagged themselves along with the top half following their 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur. Natalie Crinean netted the only goal of the game after just 75 seconds of play to leave the Gills five points off the pace.
At the other end of the table, Queen's Park Rangers and Millwall Lionesses met each other in an important clash which culminated in a 2-2 draw. Holly Sandow gave Rangers a first half lead which was cancelled out a minute later by Kayleigh Xidhas, who scored for the second week in a row. Sandow put QPR back in front midway through the second half but the Lionesses battled back once more, earning themselves a vital point when Shauni Griffiths equalised ten minutes from time.
