Leaders Aston Villa saw their 100% record come to an end as they battled out a 1-1 draw with Durham Women.
Nicki Gears gave Durham the lead after eight minutes but Nadine Hanssen headed in an equaliser after the break to maintain Villa's unbeaten record and keep a three point gap between the two teams, although Durham are now in fourth place.
London City Lionesses have nipped into second place, one point behind Villa, following their 3-0 victory over Lewes. The deadlock was broken just before half time through a superb solo effort from Ellie Mason and after Liz Ejupi had doubled their lead midway through the second half, Hannah Short rounded off the scoring with five minutes remaining.
Sheffield Utd's winning streak was brought to a halt when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Charlton Athletic. Jade Pennock did give United the lead after four minutes but Charlton responded well, Ellie Dorey equalising with her team's first league goal of the season and Charlie Devlin then put the Addicks ahead on the stroke of half time. The Blades salvaged a point with fifteen minutes to go when Olivia Fergusson levelled matters with her fifth goal of the campaign.
Crystal Palace are in mid-table after they won 3-2 away to London Bees, after having survived a comeback by the home team. Ella Rutherford fired Palace ahead shortly before half time and Bianca Baptiste added a second just after the break, but the Bees hit back with two goals in seven minutes, levelling the scores through Nikita Whinnett and Merrick Will. The game looked to be heading for a draw but Palace were to have the final say and Rutherford settled matters when she scored her second goal of the game in injury time.
Blackburn Rovers and Coventry Utd shared the points after they fought out a 2-2 draw. Amber Hughes fired Coventry into an early lead but Blackburn battled back and put themselves in the lead as Saffron Jordan scored either side of half time.
