Sheffield Utd have returned to the top of the FA Women's Championship, after they won 3-0 against Crystal Palace.
The first half was goalless as Palace defended very well but their resistance was broken three minutes after the restart when Jade Pennock put United in front. Pennock turned provider as she set up Courtney Sweetman-Kirk for the second and Katie Wilkinson completed the scoring. With Durham Women not having a game, the Blades therefore move above them on goal difference.
Leicester City lost ground on the top two as they were beaten for the first time, 4-1 by London City Lionesses. It looked as though the Foxes might be on their way towards another win when Paige Bailey-Gayle put them in the lead midway through the first half but the Lionesses responded quickly and Atlanta Primus equalised four minutes later. Primus then scored her second five minutes after the interval and Lily Agg broke through to make it three. Ellie Mason then rounded off a fine day and result for her club by scoring the final goal, nine minutes from time.
Liverpool have moved back above Leicester into third place after sharing a 2-2 draw with Lewes, whose own good start continued. Amalie Thestrup gave Liverpool the lead on 25 minutes, with Katie Rood levelling the scores just before half time. Rinsola Babajide put the Reds back in front before the hour but the Rookettes hit back once again, substitute Ellie Hack equalising with sixteen minutes to go, to earn Lewes a share of the spoils and stretch their unbeaten league run to five matches.
London Bees recorded their first league victory and points of the season when they beat Charlton Athletic 1-0. Eartha Cumings was in fine form in goal for the Addicks but with eighteen minutes remaining, the Charlton defence were unable to clear a corner and following a scramble in the area, Georgia Robert forced the ball home for the only goal of the game and bring an end to the Bees' run of six straight defeats in the league.
