Two of the main title challengers in the Southern Division met each other on Sunday and it was Portsmouth who emerged as 2-1 winners over Brighton & Hove Albion.
Lucy Quinn gave Pompey the lead on the half hour and Gemma Hillier added a second after the break. Fliss Gibbons renewed hopes for the Seagulls when she pulled a goal back with ten minutes remaining but Portsmouth held on for a win which takes them into second place, one point behind Cardiff City Ladies and with a game in hand.
Tottenham Hotspur are in fourth place following their 3-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle. Wendy Martin, Sophie McLean and Katie O'Leary scored the goals to hand Spurs their eighth win in nine matches, in all competitions.
The points were shared as West Ham Utd and Queen's Park Rangers battled out a 1-1 draw in their derby match. After a goalless first half, Sophie Fogarty put Rangers in front within five minutes of the restart via a spectacular long range strike and they remained ahead until ten minutes from time, when Vicky Kinsman equalised for the Hammers with another well struck effort from outside the area.
Keynsham Town went close to their first league win of the season but were left frustrated when a late fightback by Lewes resulted in a 2-2 draw. Keynsham led by two goals through Leanne Lapham and Olivera Markovic and goalkeeper Elena Pasare had also saved a penalty but with twenty minutes left, another spot kick for the Rookettes was slotted home by Kim Stenning. Rebecca Thompson-Agbro levelled the scores four minutes later and both teams had opportunities late on but had to settle for a point apiece.
