The Southern Division is shaping up to be tightly contested this year as Sunday's results mean that just one point separates the top nine teams in the table.
Leading the way on four points apiece are Cardiff City Ladies and Gillingham, who keep themselves in pole position on goal difference after their meeting ended in a goalless draw.
The next seven teams all have three points to their name, headed by Tottenham Hotspur who belatedly began their season with a 3-0 victory away to newly promoted Chesham Utd. Joanne Woodgates gave Spurs the lead and they went on to add further goals through Molly Kmita and Bianca Baptiste.
There were plenty of goals on offer at Keynsham Town where visitors Brighton & Hove Albion registered their first points of the season with a 6-3 win. Brighton, who have a good record at the AJN Stadium, made a flying start and netted three times in the opening half hour through Lily Agg, Kirsty Barton and Cherelle Khassal, before Vera Bernabe and Leanne Lapham brought the home side back into the game ahead of the break. Cally Beaumont scored her first goal of the new campaign just after the hour to put the Seagulls 4-2 ahead and they went on to make the points safe with further strikes from Tammy Waine and Agg, before Abbie Britton pulled one back for Keynsham late on.
Lewes claimed arguably the result of the day in the league with a 2-1 success against Charlton Athletic. After the first half ended goalless, Kit Graham headed Charlton in front on 53 minutes but the Rookettes hit back and goals from Naomi Cole and Catherine O'Hagan gave them victory (see match report).
Two first half goals turned out to be enough to give West Ham Utd a 2-1 win at the expense of Portsmouth. Natalie Crinean pounced on a bad back pass to send the Hammers in front and they added a second ten minutes later, Vicki King lobbing home from long range. Pompey came storming back after the break but found Toni-Anne Wayne in excellent form in the West Ham goal before Lucy Quinn gave them hope by halving the deficit, direct from a corner. Portsmouth had a goal disallowed late on and Leeta Rutherford hit the bar in injury time but the Hammers held on to notch up their first points.
