Sheffield FC raced to the top of the Northern Division on the back of a stunning 7-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers.
Jodie Michalska gave Sheffield an early lead before Krystle Johnston hit a first half hat-trick to put the Yorkshire side in control of matters at the break. Becky Lee headed in the next goal and Johnston had completed a great personal performance with her fourth goal, Suzanne Davies rounded off the scoring with the final goal.
Sheffield head the table on goal difference from Preston North End, who notched up their second win in succession with a fine 5-2 triumph against Leeds Utd. Gemma Watson gave Preston a first half lead which was cancelled out by Carey Huegett to leave the scores level at half time. Preston went back in front within three minutes of the restart through a neat finish from Becky Grocott but Leeds were quickly on terms once again when Huegett scored her second from the penalty spot. Melissa Bell then gave Preston the lead for a third time and Watson completed her double before Sophie Jones added the fifth goal late on.
Sporting Club Albion are one point off the pace after they notched up their first victory of the season, 4-0 against local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers. The first half was goalless but seven minutes into the second half, Abby Pope gave Albion the lead with a spectacular strike from a 25-yard free kick. Siobhan Hodgetts bundled in the second from a corner and Pippa Humphrey put Albion further ahead, before Robyn James completed the scoring in the dying minutes.
It was a good day for Stoke City as they claimed their first ever victory in the Premier League, 3-1 away to Derby County. Laura Garside gave Stoke an early lead and they went on to seal the points with further strikes from Dawn Mallett and Chantelle Gallagher.
Nottingham Forest and Newcastle Utd each drew for the second time when they shared four goals. Newcastle led at the interval through a goal from Megan Pyper but Samantha Conroy and Amber Hughes turned the game around in Forest's favour just after the hour mark. Jessica Havelock struck with fifteen minutes remaining to ensure a share of the spoils for Newcastle.
