Watford 2 (Mason pen 20, Kerr 80) Everton 1 (Walker 18)
Watford turned the league table on its head to inflict a first defeat of the season on promotion chasing Everton and register their first league win of the campaign.
Everton took the lead just before the twenty minute mark as Claudia Walker's speculative distance shot bobbled awkwardly on the long grass and slid under Lucy Gillett.
The Watford goalkeeper had been by far the busier of the two in the opening exchanges, with the home side struggling to contain Everton's excellent play along both flanks. However the hosts pulled back an equaliser immediately, with Ellie Mason coolly converting from the spot after an Everton handball.
Gillett found herself in huge trouble at the start of the second half, racing out of her box and bundling Walker over and was lucky to escape with just a yellow card.
Watford got the winner when Everton goalkeeper Kirstie Levell left her line to give Kerr the space to fire off a powerful shot that left the net bulging.
