Brighton & Hove Albion regained the leadership of the Southern Division by winning 3-0 at Copsewood (Coventry).
Fliss Gibbons opened the scoring for the Seagulls in the second minute and after the break, Danielle Carlton netted from a free kick and Amy Green added the third to give Brighton their seventh straight victory in all competitions.
Cardiff City Ladies are in second place after running out 7-1 winners away to Gillingham. Kelly Aldridge and Naomi Clipston each netted twice for the South Wales side and there was one apiece from Michelle Green, Kelly Isaac and Cori Williams with Natalie Crinean grabbing a consolation for the Gills.
Charlton Athletic had started the day on top of the table but are back in third after their local derby with West Ham Utd culminated in a thrilling 3-3 draw. The Hammers led at half time through a goal from Sarah McCrea and they doubled their advantage early in the second half when Kelley Blanchflower scored. Charlton then staged a fine comeback with the prolific Kit Graham netting twice and Charley Clifford then putting them in front, before Vicky Kinsman hit back to earn West Ham a share of the spoils.
Portsmouth remain well in contention after they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-1. Molly Clark and Ini Umotong gave Pompey a two-goal lead inside the opening quarter of the game, before Bianca Baptiste reduced the arrears for Spurs. Charley Wilson headed in the third early in the second half and Umotong wrapped up the win with her second goal just after the hour mark. Portsmouth remain three points off the pace, with two games in hand.
The happiest team in the division though were Keynsham Town as they broke their duck with a 3-3 draw against Plymouth Argyle. They needed to withstand a disastrous start though as Emily Mousley and Ellana Moseley put Argyle two ahead inside the opening five minutes, but Pilar Garcia struck twice to bring Keynsham back on level terms and Leanne Lapham gave them a half time lead. Plymouth levelled matters early in the second half through Rebekah Rose and neither team could force a winning goal from there in an entertaining clash.
Queen's Park Rangers made sure their week ended on a high note as they beat Lewes 2-1. The Rookettes had taken a first half lead through Catherine O'Hagan but after the break, Natalie Adams equalised for Rangers and Kasha Petit went on to give her side three valuable points with the winning goal.
