After reclaiming top spot in the early table on Thursday night, Manchester Utd made sure of staying there on Sunday with a 5-0 victory away to London Bees.
Mollie Green opened the scoring for United in the eighteenth minute and Lauren James added a second, before Millie Turner made in three in first half injury time. After the break, Green completed her double, before Ella Toone rounded off the scoring with ten minutes remaining.
Lewes continue to keep pace with United as they also picked up their third straight win, edging out Leicester City by the odd goal in seven. However it was Leicester who went two ahead inside the opening fourteen minutes, courtesy of a Nat Johnson double, with Rebecca Carter pulling one back just after the half hour. Two goals in four second half minutes saw Carter complete her hat-trick and put the Rookettes in front for the first time. Samantha Quayle finished off a good move with seven minutes remaining and this proved to be decisive, despite Fiona Worts reducing the arrears for Leicester deep into injury time.
Durham Women and Charlton Athletic both remain unbeaten after their meeting finished in a 2-2 draw. The game exploded into life at the midpoint of the first half as the teams shared three goals in as many minutes. Beth Hepple fired Durham in front and Charlton's response was instant, with Kit Graham levelling the scores. Barely a minute had passed though and Emily Roberts had put the Wildcats in front once again. After the break, Charlton stepped up the pressure but were denied on more than one occasion by Hannah Reid who was in fine form in the Durham goal. The Addicks were not to be denied though and Amelia Ritchie headed in to earn them a point, six minutes from time.
Millwall Lionesses and Crystal Palace are both off the mark after their South London derby finished in a 1-1 draw. Ashlee Hincks broke through to give Palace a tenth minute lead against her former club but on the hour mark, Gabby Ravenscroft produced a superb strike which earned Millwall a share of the spoils.
The other scheduled match between Tottenham Hotspur and Sheffield Utd fell victim to a waterlogged pitch and the game will be played at a later date.
