Millwall Lionesses are the only side to have won both of their opening matches in the Southern Division, giving themselves a lead of two points following their 2-0 success away to West Ham Utd.
After a goalless first half, Carly Eagles gave Pru Buckley's side the lead five minutes after the restart and Pam McRoberts kept up her good start to the season by scoring the second.
Barnet looked to be on course for their second win but were pegged back by a late goal. Gemma Shepherd gave the Bees the lead against Keynsham Town but the Somerset side battled back to record their second successive 1-1 draw, thanks to a penalty from Sheila Rocha ten minutes from time.
Portsmouth narrowly had the better of WFC Fulham with a 2-1 victory in boiling hot conditions at Fareham. Brooke Chaplen added to her growing reputation by netting both goals for Pompey, including a match clinching goal in injury time with a neat chipped finish. Ann Marie Heatherson scored a debut goal for Fulham via a looping header with the last touch of the game.
After well documented team raising problems, Reading Royals looked to be on their way to a shock victory as Chloe Rostron gave them a half time lead against Brighton & Hove Albion. The Royals held on until the 66th minute when Tammy Waine scored the first of her hat-trick and further strikes from Regan Coleman and Samantha Mee secured a 5-1 victory for the Seagulls, who move into fourth place.
Newquay claimed their first ever Premier League victory, scoring five without reply against Colchester Utd. The Cornish side never looked back after Leanne Lapham and Candy Hopson put them two ahead in the opening 17 minutes and, after the break, Lapham completed her double before Dawna Dennett and Helen Wood rounded off the scoring.
Crystal Palace were another team to bounce back from an opening day defeat to record a victory, 3-1 against AFC Team Bath. Claire Williams gave Palace the lead shortly before half time with Holly Miles equalising on the hour, but Karly Dunmall quickly restored Palace's advantage and Williams wrapped up the points with her second.
