Portsmouth have taken over at the top of the table for the first time this season following a 3-0 victory away to West Ham Utd.
Charley Wilson was the hero for Pompey as she scored a hat-trick to hand Perry Northeast's side their fifth win on the trot.
Brighton & Hove Albion meanwhile inched themselves back up into second place, thanks to a 3-1 success at Queen's Park Rangers. The Seagulls led at half time through a goal from Fliss Gibbons and Lucy Somes added a second early in the second half. Jay Blackie netted her first of the season to complete the scoring for Brighton, with Sophie Fogarty scoring a consolation for Rangers six minutes from time.
Tottenham Hotspur had started the day as leaders but are back in third place after being jolted with a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Cardiff City Ladies. Cori Williams opened the scoring for the South Wales side on the stroke of half time and after the break, Michelle Green netted twice, either side of a Lauren Townsend goal, to move Cardiff up to fourth.
Charlton Athletic completed a double over Keynsham Town but the visitors did salvage some pride after conceding double figures to the Addicks on the opening day of the season. Charlton netted twice in quick succession through Gemma Shepherd and Katie Flack during the first half and they went on to add further goals from leading scorer Kit Graham and Emma Harrison.
Lewes are in a mid-table position following their 3-0 victory over Copsewood (Coventry). The Rookettes led at half time with a goal from Charlotte Bennett, before Sian Heather and Catherine O'Hagan rounded off the win after the break.
Plymouth Argyle meanwhile recorded their second win of the season as they defeated Gillingham by the odd goal in five. Mollie Taylor gave Argyle the lead just before half time and Ezme Wells added a second ten minutes into the second half. An own goal from Nicola Lake reduced the arrears soon afterwards but Wells then scored her second to restore the two-goal advantage. Ashlee Hincks gave the Gills late hope with a 25-yard strike but defeat for her side was put into perspective as they lost Jade Keogh with a dislocated ankle midway through the first half.
