Durham Women continued their good start to the season on Sunday and their 2-1 victory leaves them on top of the FA Women's Championship on goal difference.
Palace started the game well and went ahead in the ninth minute through Ashleigh Goddard but Lisa Robertson brought the Wildcats level early in the second half with a 25-yard strike. The game looked to be heading towards a draw but in injury time, Sarah Robson bundled in a late goal following a free kick to hand Durham their second win in successive matches.
Joining Durham on maximum points are Aston Villa who recorded their second 3-2 win on the trot, this time away to London City Lionesses. Amy West gave Villa a tenth minute lead but Elizabeta Ejupi equalised for the Lionesses on the half hour and, five minutes into the second half, she put them ahead for the first time with her second goal. The match turned in a three minute spell, midway through the second half, as Natalie Haigh levelled matters once again and Shania Hayles grabbed what proved to be the winner for Villa, who needed to withstand late Lionesses pressure for the three points.
Lewes follow on in third place, two points off the pace after battling out a goalless draw with Charlton Athletic. The Addicks were playing their first match of the season and almost marked it with a win when Charlie Estcourt shot over late on, but Lewes had gone very close on two occasions themselves when Charley Boswell and Jess King both struck the woodwork.
Sheffield Utd bounced back from an opening day defeat to run out 7-1 winners over Leicester City. The Blades made a storming start to the match with four goals inside the opening 25 minutes, Sophie Barker putting them in front before Katie Wilkinson notched a brace and Aimee Palmer, making her debut after joining on loan from Manchester United, added the fourth. Veatriki Sarri made it five on the stroke of half time, with Olivia Fergusson increasing their lead on the hour and Palmer netting her second shortly afterwards, before Lachante Paul grabbed a late consolation for Leicester.
Blackburn Rovers' first home match in the league following promotion ended in defeat as London Bees won 1-0 to register their first points of the season. The only goal of the game came five minutes before half time as Nikita Whinnett raced through to lob home and the Bees defended stoutly in the second half to preserve their lead, with goalkeeper Sarah Quantrill in excellent form.
