FA Women's Championship leaders Manchester Utd hit the ground running as they resumed their season, scoring nine times without reply past London Bees.
Charlie Devlin gave United the lead with two minutes on the clock, with Ella Toone adding the second just before the half hour. Lizzie Arnot and Mollie Green then scored twice in quick succession to double their advantage going into the interval. Devlin and Toone each completed their doubles during the second half and Lauren James also netted twice, with Katie Zelem rounding off the scoring from the penalty spot, ten minutes from time.
Tottenham Hotspur moved back into second place following their 2-1 success away to Sheffield Utd. Rianna Dean gave Spurs a fifth minute lead which was cancelled out a minute later by an own goal from Jenna Schillaci, with Sarah Wiltshire netting the decisive goal six minutes into the second half.
Charlton Athletic and Durham Women remain in the running after their meeting ended in a 2-2 draw. The Addicks took the lead midway through the first half thanks to Ellie Bailes, but Durham hit back strongly with two goals just before half time from Zoe Ness. The Wildcats held onto their lead until five minutes from time, when Charlotte Gurr salvaged a vital point for her side with a late equaliser.
Leicester City now head the chasing teams after they ended a four-match losing run with a 4-0 victory over Lewes. The Rookettes were playing under the managership of Fran Alonso for the first time and a fifteen minute spell either side of the interval proved to be decisive as Leicester scored three times. Melissa Johnson gave them the lead five minutes before half time and after the break, Fiona Worts added a quickfire brace. Lucy Johnson crowned the victory for her side by netting the final goal late on.
On Saturday night, the two teams at the foot of the table met each other in a derby match with Crystal Palace beating Millwall Lionesses 3-1 to claim their second win of the season. Chloe Burr gave Palace a sixth minute lead, which they took into half time, but the goalscorer was then forced to play in goal during the second half after Shanell Salgado had been injured. Hannah MacKenzie put Palace two ahead seven minutes after the restart but Millwall's reply was a swift one, Gabby Ravenscroft pulling a goal back barely a minute later. Palace were to seal the points ten minutes later though as Gemma Bryan marked her return to the club by heading in the third goal.
