Southern Division table toppers Gillingham notched up arguably their most impressive win of the season so far, 4-0 away to Coventry City.
Danielle Carlton, Fliss Gibbons, Jade Keogh and Lauren Williams all scored a goal apiece to ensure that the Gills remain three points clear at the top of the table.
Cardiff City Ladies stay hard on the heels of Gillingham but only after a narrow 4-3 victory over Keynsham Town. Kelly Aldridge gave Cardiff the lead against her former club and Sarah Wiltshire added a second on the half hour, but Katarzyna Rusek halved the deficit ahead of the break. In the second half, Keynsham, who are still looking for their first points of the season, hit back and equalised through an own goal and then Rusek put them ahead for the first time when she scored her second goal. Lauren Townsend levelled the scores once again and in injury time, Wiltshire netted a dramatic winner to give Cardiff their third win in a row.
Brighton & Hove Albion are up into third after five second half goals carried them to a 6-0 local derby victory away to Lewes. The Seagulls led at half time through a 12th minute strike from Sophie Perry and they took control of the game when Tammy Waine and Charlotte Young netted two goals in a three minute spell shortly ahead of the hour mark. Kate Natkiel added a fourth before going on to add two more in injury time to make it a hat-trick in total.
Charlton Athletic kept up their improving form by beating Chesham Utd 3-2 to move themselves into the top four. The Addicks took an early two-goal lead with strikes from Jenny Newman and Kim Dixson and although Vicky Gallagher reduced the arrears before half time, Sam Pittuck restored the two-goal advantage five minutes into the second half. Nat Adams gave Chesham late hope when she pulled a goal back with eight minutes left but Charlton held on for a second win in successive weeks.
West Ham Utd and Tottenham Hotspur occupy the mid-table positions after battling out a 1-1 draw in their derby meeting. Lindsey Morgan was on target for the Hammers while Spurs found the net through Andrea Marocci.
