Sporting Club Albion leapt to the top of the Northern Division on the back of a 5-0 victory over Guiseley AFC Vixens.
Abi Cottam opened the scoring for Albion on the half hour and they added further goals ahead of the break through Natalie Poole and Leigh Dugmore. With fifteen minutes remaining, Dugmore netted her second from the penalty spot and Trina Greaves completed the tally late on.
Albion lead the way on goal difference from Derby County who are the other team on maximum points, as they edged out Loughborough Foxes by the odd goal in seven. Katie Lowder gave Derby a third minute lead but the Foxes hit back to lead at the break through Vicky Brackenbury and Emma Pilling. Melissa Johnson levelled again, with Shauna Chambers putting Loughborough back in front, before Hannah Ward and Lowder both scored to maintain Derby's perfect start.
Another team to have started well is Stoke City who are in third place following their 5-2 win against Huddersfield Town. Ashleigh Hayes, Louise Roberts, Laura Garside and Kate Asher ensured that Stoke led by four goals at half time, with Faye McCoy extending their lead early in the second half. Emily Heckler and Kate Mallin pulled goals back for Huddersfield but Stoke are just two points off the pace.
Newcastle Utd had started the day as leaders but went down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 4-0 by Nottingham Forest. All of the goals came in the second half, Natasha Meade and Andi Bell each netting twice to hand Forest their largest league victory since February 2014.
Blackburn Rovers have two wins in three matches following their 2-0 success against Nuneaton Town, which was given to them by goals from Thea Mallett and Danielle Sheen.
Preston North End notched up their first league victory of the season, 2-1 over Bradford City. The Yorkshire side had led through a first half strike from Rosie McDonell, before Keeleigh Savage equalised on the stroke of half time and Chelsea Flanagan netted a decisive second for Preston, deep into injury time.
