Southern Division leaders Reading FC Women received a setback as they were edged out by Brighton & Hove Albion in a seven-goal thriller.
The division's two leading goalscorers were in opposition during the match and neither disappointed during the first half, Kim Stenning netting a double for Brighton with Francesca Kirby replying both times as the sides went in level at the break at 2-2. Stenning went on to complete her hat-trick with Tammy Waine adding a fourth for the Seagulls and although Lois Roche pulled a goal back for Reading late on, Brighton held out for an important win which keeps them in third, four points off the pace.
Reading's defeat gave Millwall Lionesses the opportunity to move level on points with them and they did so with a 2-1 victory over Yeovil Town. Emma Whitter and Ciara Sherwood netted their goals with Laura Bray replying for the Glovers.
In the other game, Gillingham picked up three crucial points from a 1-0 win over Lewes which takes them into mid-table. Kallie Balfour grabbed the only goal of the game to give the Gills only their second victory of the season.
