Colchester Utd maintained their two point lead at the top of the Southern Division with a 5-0 victory over Millwall Lionesses.
However for an hour, it looked as though the Lionesses would pick up a vital point against the league leaders until the U's netted five times in the last thirty minutes. Helen Bass gave them the lead on the hour mark and added a second with twelve minutes remaining, then goals in the last seven minutes from Maegen Doyle, Kate Longhurst and Laura Guyon sealed an important win for Colchester.
The two teams immediately below Colchester in the table, West Ham Utd and Portsmouth, met each other and it was the Hammers who took the points with a 4-3 victory. Carly Roache gave West Ham an early lead which was cancelled out by Lindsey Roe, before Jess Barling and Gemma Shepherd put the Hammers 3-1 up at half time. Jemma Tewkesbury reduced the arrears but Becky Merritt scored a decisive fourth on 83 minutes, despite Tewkesbury netting a second via an injury time penalty (see match report).
Gillingham moved up into fourth place on the back of a narrow 2-1 win against Keynsham Town, who remain just above the bottom two. Lauren Phillips gave the Gills a second minute lead which was cancelled out shortly before half time by Suzanne Grant, but Vicky Ashton-Jones settled matters with the winning strike just after the hour.
Brighton & Hove Albion's title challenge took a blow as they went down to a 2-0 defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur, who took a big stride towards mid-table security. Emma Plewa put Spurs in front on the half hour and they sealed a crucial win when Jenna Schillaci netted the second with three minutes remaining.
