Sunderland's winning start to the new season was checked as they were held to a 2-2 draw by third placed Watford.
Watford took the lead five minutes ahead of half time when Jo Wilson latched onto Kate Natkiel's pass to score but early in the second half, Keira Ramshaw levelled the scores with a good finish. Kelly McDougall put Sunderland ahead for the first time from the penalty spot after Beth Mead had been fouled in the area but in the dying minutes, Watford themselves were awarded a penalty and Sarah Wiltshire made no mistake from the spot.
Sunderland have extended their lead to four points though due to Leeds Utd going down to a surprise 2-1 defeat at home to Aston Villa. All of the goals came in the last fifteen minutes, Villa - bouncing back from a four-goal defeat seven days earlier - going into a two-goal lead through Kelly Clarke and Natasha Merritt and although Leeds reduced the arrears through Tanya Rich, Villa held on for their second victory of the season.
A win could have taken Cardiff City Ladies into the top three but they suffered a 1-0 reverse at home to Charlton Athletic, who are now one place below them in the table. In-form striker Gemma Bryan scored the only goal of the game on the hour mark to hand the Addicks their second victory in successive weeks.
Manchester City are one of four clubs on seven points in mid-table after they defeated Coventry City 2-1. The Sky Blues had led through a goal midway through the first half from Dani Saulter but City were back on level terms early in the second half when Sarah Buffel equalised. With nine minutes left, Amanda Goodwin scored a decisive goal to earn Man City their first league win since the opening day of the season.
Barnet registered their first point of the season when sharing a 2-2 draw with Portsmouth. Looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat the previous Sunday, Pompey took an early lead through Jemma Tewkesbury but eight minutes into the second half, Barnet were level via a strike from Holly Sandow. Kirsty McGee put Portsmouth back in front before Vicky Boardman earned the Bees a valuable point with a late equaliser.
