Brighton & Hove Albion strengthened their position at the top of the Southern Division with a 3-2 win away to Portsmouth.
Kate Natkiel gave the Seagulls a seventh minute lead which was quickly cancelled out by Ini Umotong and both sides exchanged chances in a thrilling first half. Just before the hour mark, Lucy Somes put Brighton back in front following a scramble and Amy Taylor drove home what proved to be a decisive third, despite Emma Sherwood pulling one back for Pompey in injury time.
Brighton now head the table by four points, because second placed Cardiff City Ladies went down to a 3-0 defeat at home to Coventry Utd. The South Wales side had gone into the match on the back of a seven-match winning run in the league but a second half goal blitz puts Coventry's season back on track. All of the goals came in an eleven minute spell, Cristina Torkildsen giving them the lead before a quickfire double from Helen Dermody wrapped up the points.
C & K Basildon got back to winning ways with a 2-1 success against Plymouth Argyle, which takes them back into mid-table. Lily Mellors and Claire Lacey scored the goals for C & K, with Argyle replying through a second half own goal (see match report).
West Ham Utd moved out of the bottom two places after picking up a valuable point from a 2-2 draw against Lewes. Indeed, the Hammers went into a two-goal lead during the first half with strikes from Paige Anderson-James and Romina Pinna and looked to be on their way towards victory, but the Rookettes hit back in the last ten minutes with Natasha Wells and Julia Louis-Joseph both scoring to salvage a point for their side.
