Things remain tight at the top of the Southern Division after the top five all recorded victories on Sunday.
The table is still led on goal difference by Cardiff City Ladies who were 2-0 winners away to Lewes, thanks to a brace of goals from Shannelle Edwards.
Portsmouth made sure of keeping pace with Cardiff as they triumphed 3-0 at Plymouth Argyle. Charley Wilson and Gemma Hillier ensured that Pompey led by two goals at the interval and substitute Ini Umatong wrapped up the win with the third goal late on.
Charlton Athletic remain close at hand in third place, one point behind the top two after beating Gillingham 3-0. Katie Flack gave the Addicks a lead which was doubled in first half injury time by Kit Graham and Charley Clifford joined them on the scoresheet with fifteen minutes remaining.
A 5-2 victory away to Tottenham Hotspur means that Brighton & Hove Albion remain three points off the pace. The first half actually ended goalless and Tottenham took the lead early in the second half through Wendy Martin, but Charley Boswell and Charlotte Owen turned matters around in Brighton's favour. Sophie Perry and a Natalie Grafton own goal put the Seagulls further ahead and although Martin reduced the arrears with her second goal, Jay Blackie rounded off the scoring for Brighton in injury time.
West Ham Utd made sure of hanging onto the tails of the leaders by winning 3-0 at Copsewood (Coventry). All of the Hammers' goals came in the first half, Lily Mellors opening the scoring before Vicky Kinsman and Sarah McCrea added further goals.
Five of the six matches in the division resulted in away wins, the highest going the way of Queen's Park Rangers who defeated Keynsham Town 8-1. Natalie Adams gave Rangers a first half lead which was cancelled out by a volley from Hannah Sims, but a succession of injuries reduced Keynsham to just nine players and a ruthless second half display from Rangers saw them find the net seven times. Gemma Rudman restored their lead and Adams netted her second on the hour, with Kasha Petit, Jennifer Critchley, Sarah Staples, Sophie Fogarty and Rudman all adding further goals.
