Coventry City preserved their lead of three points at the top of the Northern Division with a 5-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers.
Maz Gauntlett and Helen Dermody each scored twice and Samantha Quayle the other to end third placed Blackburn's unbeaten run of seven matches (see match report).
Sheffield FC stayed hard on Coventry's heels by beating Newcastle Utd 4-1. Jodie Michalska returned to scoring form in spectacular fashion as she bagged a hat-trick with Suzanne Davies adding the other goal, while the Magpies' consolation came from Stacy Crooks.
Bradford City's steady climb up the table is showing no signs of slowing down and they are up into fourth place after winning 2-0 at Stoke City. Molly-Mae Sharp netted both goals for Bradford inside the opening 26 minutes to give them their third league win in a row.
There were plenty of goals on offer at Huddersfield Town as the home side staged a second half fightback to earn a 4-4 draw with Derby County. The visitors had led 4-1 at one stage thanks to a Natalie Reay double, Laura Cooper and Melissa Johnson but Huddersfield, whose first half goal had come from Emily Heckler, hit back strongly and salvaged a point after scoring three times in an eight minute spell through Kate Mallin, Natalie Brace and Camille Clarke.
At the other end of the table, there were significant results for the teams who currently occupy the bottom two positions. Wolverhampton Wanderers picked up their first point of the season following nine straight defeats as they battled to a goalless draw in their local derby against Sporting Club Albion.
Nottingham Forest meanwhile won for the first time, beating Preston North End 2-1. Andi Bell's early strike for Forest was cancelled out by an equaliser from Laura Walker, before Natasha Meade grabbed the winning goal midway through the second half.
