Sunderland kept up their impressive start to the new season in the National Division by making it two wins out of two when crushing Barnet 7-0.
Mick Mulhern's side never looked back after taking a fourth minute lead through Beth Mead and Keira Ramshaw went on to add a brace of goals before half time. After the break, Kelly McDougall scored with a cross-cum-shot before Mead netted her second. McDougall promptly added the sixth from the penalty spot and Abby Holmes rounded off the scoring late on.
Watford sport the division's other 100% record after they defeated Cardiff City Ladies 2-1. All of the goals came in the second half, Shelby Hills and Jo Wilson putting the Golden Girls two goals ahead before Naomi Clipston replied with a consolation (see match report).
Manchester City are the other unbeaten team following a dramatic 4-4 draw against Charlton Athletic which saw three goals scored in injury time. Ellie Stenning sent Charlton in front just before half time and Courteney Gibson added a second soon after the restart. City hit back strongly with Chelsea Nightingale and Sarah Buffel levelling the scores by the hour mark, before Lynda Shepherd put them ahead for the first time with eight minutes remaining. Gemma Shepherd looked to have salvaged a point for the Addicks from the penalty spot as the game went past the 90 minute mark but City's response was immediate, Sarah Danby restoring their lead straight away. However this was still not the end of the scoring, Gemma Shepherd then netting her second to earn Charlton their first point of the season.
Portsmouth claimed their first ever points in the top flight when running out 3-0 winners over Aston Villa. Charley Wilson gave Pompey the lead midway through the first half and Gemma Hillier added a second, three minutes ahead of the break. Shelly Cox wrapped up the win for Vanessa Raynbird's side with the final goal, eighteen minutes from time.
There was more late drama at Leeds Utd where the home side got off the mark for the new campaign when beating Coventry City 1-0. A tight and entertaining match was settled in the final minute when Carey Huegett scored the only goal of the game from close range.
