Portsmouth's four-match winning run came to a sudden halt as the Southern Division leaders were beaten 4-0 by Barnet.
The Bees had not won since the opening day of the season but Stacey Sowden put them in front after five minutes and second half strikes from Gemma Rudman, Nina Downham and Stacey Parkinson wrapped up a stunning victory.
Keynsham Town closed the gap on leaders Portsmouth to a single point as they completed their long-travelling week by winning 5-2 at Colchester Utd. The Bristol side had already played Newquay and Reading Royals, meaning that they had spent 900 miles on the road in eight days, but resulting in three victories. Sheila Rocha and Jaime Halas each scored twice, Andreea Alexandru the other, whilst Helen Bass replied twice for the U's.
Crystal Palace maintained their good start with a 4-0 victory over Reading Royals. Kenne Ogunneye opened the scoring in the sixth minute before Beth Curtis went on to complete the scoring, the former Barnet striker netting a hat-trick.
Millwall Lionesses got back to winning ways, beating AFC Team Bath 4-2. Cardelle Dunne and Gemma Bryan twice gave the Lionesses the lead, with Kirsty Richardson and Holly Miles replying, before Bryan completed her double on the stroke of half time and Christina Douglas made the game safe late on.
After having lost their opening game, WFC Fulham have won three in a row, without conceding a goal, and are menacingly placed just behind the leading teams with games in hand. Former Charlton Athletic striker Ann Marie Heatherson is in top form at present and she netted four times in Fulham's 6-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion, with Leah Jones and Susannah Abbott adding the other two goals.
Newquay make up sixth place in the table as they climbed above West Ham Utd by beating them 5-3. Jay Blackie's early goal for the Hammers was cancelled out by Leanne Griffiths and Helen Wood put Newquay ahead for the first time. Leanne Lapham added a third before Sam Pittuck reduced the deficit but Griffiths netted her second on the stroke of half time. Pittuck again gave West Ham renewed hope early in the second half but Newquay wrapped up the points with five minutes remaining as Wood completed her double.
