Sunderland's strong start to the new season continued as they ran out 4-1 winners away to Coventry City to open up a lead of three points at the top of the National Division.
Keira Ramshaw sent the Wearsiders into a seventh minute lead, which they took into the half time interval. Kelly McDougall doubled their advantage ten minutes after the restart and Beth Mead added a third on the hour. Helen Dermody reduced the arrears for the Sky Blues from the penalty spot but McDougall rounded off a great day for the league leaders with her second goal, eight minutes from time.
The two newly promoted sides met each other and it was Portsmouth who came from behind to beat Manchester City 3-2, lifting themselves into second place in the process. In a thrilling encounter, Shelly Cox fired Pompey into a ninth minute lead with Sarah Danby levelling midway through the first half. After the break, Lindsey Roe restored Portsmouth's lead before City hit back again through a second equaliser from Amanda Goodwin. The game looked to be heading towards draw until injury time when Kirsty McGee produced a cool finish to give her side their second successive victory in the league.
Watford had started the day sporting the division's other 100% record but they were beaten for the first time, 2-1 by Leeds Utd who join them on six points. Carey Huegett put Leeds in front in the third minute and although Jo Wilson levelled matters just before the half hour, Huegett struck again midway through the second half to earn her side the points.
Honours were even as Cardiff City Ladies and Barnet battled out a goalless draw which earned the Bees their first point of the season, whilst keeping Cardiff in a mid-table position.
Two goals in two first half minutes proved to be enough to give Aston Villa their first victory, 2-1 against Charlton Athletic. Katie Wilkinson, who scored a hat-trick in the League Cup seven days earlier, kept up her good form by giving Villa the lead and Carly Davies added a second moments later. Gemma Shepherd pulled a goal back for the Addicks via a penalty with seventeen minutes remaining but Villa held out for an important win.
