Manchester Utd inflicted a first defeat of the season on Championship leaders Tottenham Hotspur and narrowed the gap on them to two points in the process.
Lauren James gave United a tenth minute lead and leading scorer Jess Sigsworth weighed in with a brace ahead of half time. Charlie Devlin completed a good day for her side when she scored their fourth goal, before Angela Addison netted a late consolation for Spurs - the first league goal United have conceded this season.
Charlton Athletic are also only two points off the pace following their 2-0 victory over London Bees. In-form midfielder Elizabeta Ejupi gave Charlton the lead with only three minutes on the clock and Gemma Bryan added the Addicks' other goal, just ahead of half time.
Durham Women still sport the Championship's other unbeaten record and produced some of their best form this season when beating Lewes 5-0. The Wildcats produced an astonishing five-goal blitz in sixteen first half minutes, Becky Salicki heading them in front and Zoe Ness adding a second a second shortly afterwards. Abi Cottam then took centre stage, the striker netting an eleven minute hat-trick to crown a fine result for her team.
Sheffield Utd meanwhile made it two victories on the trot and moved to within one point of Leicester City after winning their meeting 1-0. The Blades had the better of matters throughout the match with both Ellie Gilliatt and Beth Merrick striking the woodwork, but they managed to grab a winning goal with seven minutes remaining, thanks to a deflected effort from Rebecca Rayner.
Aston Villa are out of the bottom two after notching up their first win of the season, 2-0 against Millwall Lionesses. Kerri Welsh gave Villa the lead by heading in from a Sophie Haywood cross during the first half and a cross-cum-shot by Amy West, five minutes after half time, sealed the points.
