Tottenham Hotspur have made an excellent start to the new season and they sit on top of the Southern Division table with a three point lead after toppling previous leaders Charlton Athletic 5-2.
Wendy Martin led the scoring for Spurs with a hat-trick and Bianca Baptiste weighed in with a brace, while Kit Graham netting twice in reply for the Addicks.
Brighton & Hove Albion were also beaten for the first time, going down 2-0 at home to Portsmouth. Nadine Bazan fired Pompey in front just before half time and Gemma Hillier netted a second to clinch the win but the star performer for Portsmouth was goalkeeper Sadie Blakeley who made a string of excellent saves to keep the Seagulls at bay.
West Ham Utd bounced back from a midweek defeat to win 1-0 away to Lewes and move themselves up to fourth place in the fledgling table. Stacey Little scored the only goal of the game during the first half for the Hammers.
Two of the newly promoted sides came face to face and it was Queen's Park Rangers who ran out 3-0 winners over Copsewood (Coventry). All of Rangers' goals came from corners, Lauren May and Sarah Staples giving them a two-goal lead at the break with Kasha Petit adding the third for Martino Chevannes' side on the hour mark.
Another of the newcomers celebrated victory on Sunday with Plymouth Argyle beating Cardiff City Ladies 2-1. Jodie Chubb and Ellie Dorey netted the goals which earned the points for Argyle, while Cardiff replied through Abbie Britton after Lauren Townsend's initial penalty had been saved.
Gillingham's first match at the Priestfield Stadium ended in a 2-1 victory against Keynsham Town. Charlotte Long gave them an early lead in a well contested game and after Ashlee Hincks had hit the bar early in the second half, Lauren Williams scored a second with eight minutes remaining. Keynsham tried to fight back and reduced the arrears through Andreea Alexandru but the Gills held on to notch up their first league win of the season.
