Millwall Lionesses held on to the leadership of the Southern Division with a 2-1 victory over newly promoted Lewes.
Emma Whitter and Amelia Frett scored the goals, with Joana De Soksa-Marques replying, to help the Lionesses avenge their Premier League Cup defeat to Lewes seven days earlier and extend their lead at the top of the table to three points.
Reading FC Women meanwhile replaced Gillingham in second place by beating them 7-0. Stacie Donnelly put the Royals ahead after five minutes and Becky Jane went on to score a hat-trick. Fran Kirby kept up her good start to the season by netting twice and Lois Roche was also on target.
Brighton & Hove Albion moved up to third after they edged out Colchester Utd 4-3. Charley Boswell gave the Seagulls a tenth minute lead with Zoe Rushen equalising, before Kim Stenning put Brighton back in front just before half time. Hannah Gowland levelled again but Stenning then netted twice to round off a hat-trick and although Gemma Codling pulled a goal back with twelve minutes remaining, Brighton held on to take themselves onto six points.
West Ham Utd are starting to pick up their form and two early goals saw them to a 2-0 success at Queen's Park Rangers. Kelley Blanchflower and Emma Thomas both netted inside the opening twelve minutes to hand the Hammers their second league win in a row.
Yeovil Town still hold the division's other unbeaten record - along with Millwall Lionesses - following their 4-4 draw at home to Tottenham Hotspur. However the Glovers trailed by two goals at one stage before strikes from Laura Bray, Jade Radburn, Grace Rapp and Jodi Cornwall earned them a point. Wendy Martin and Jess Cheeseman each scored twice for Spurs to give them a result which takes them off the bottom of the table.
