Doncaster Rovers Belles have taken over at the top of WSL 2 after running out 4-1 winners away to Tottenham Hotspur.
An own goal by Ryah Vyse gave Doncaster the lead during the first half with Jess Sigsworth adding the second on 33 minutes. Monique Watson made it three midway through the second half and Christie Murray, who had earlier had two goals ruled out for offside, eventually got on the scoresheet before Wendy Martin netted an injury time consolation for Spurs.
Three teams are just a single point behind the Belles, headed by Durham Women who were knocked off the top of the table after being held to a goalless draw by London Bees. Both teams had chances during the game but the Bees will be delighted with their display, which saw them get off the mark for the season.
Millwall Lionesses put an unfortunate week behind them and got their challenge back on track with a 1-0 win against previously unbeaten Oxford Utd. A three point deduction (subject to appeal) meant that Millwall conceded top spot but a long range strike in the ninth minute by Ella Rutherford gave them their fourth win in five matches and moved them back into third place.
Brighton & Hove Albion are the third team who are just one point off the pace after they also won 1-0 against Sheffield FC. A tight game was settled with seventeen minutes remaining, when Kirsty Barton converted a cross from Sophie Perry for the only goal of the game.
Aston Villa celebrated their first win and points of the season when they defeated Watford 4-0. Beth Merrick opened the scoring for Villa with two minutes on the clock, with Ebony Salmon adding the second midway through the first half. Chloe Jones extended their lead with a close range header early after the restart and Merrick completed the win when firing home from a free kick.
