Millwall Lionesses replaced Portsmouth at the top of the Southern Division after beating them 3-2.
Laura Smith gave Millwall a 13th minute lead which was cancelled out by Gemma Hillier, but Harley Bennett restored the advantage just before half time. Ellie Stenning added a third late on and, although Leeta Rutherford managed to pull a goal back, Millwall lead the table on goal difference from Pompey.
Newquay moved into third place by running out 3-0 winners away to Keynsham Town. Kayleigh Greening put the Cornish side ahead in first half injury time via a powerful header and she doubled their advantage from the penalty spot midway through the second half before Kirsty Lang wrapped up the points.
WFC Fulham continue to close in on the leading sides and are now just a point off the pace but they needed to work hard in order to edge out West Ham Utd 3-2. An early goal for West Ham by Danielle Hoy was levelled by Susannah Abbott, a Leanne Reidy own goal put the Hammers back in front but Fulham were back on terms by half time through Danielle Farmer. Leading scorer Ann Marie Heatherson settled matters in Fulham's favour with the winning goal, fifteen minutes from time.
Barnet are another team who are starting to find their best form and their 2-0 victory away to Colchester Utd takes them into the top half of the table. Stacey Sowden netted both goals for the Bees in the first half.
Brighton & Hove Albion halted their recent losing run with a useful 1-1 draw away to Crystal Palace. The Seagulls took an eighth minute lead through Tammy Waine with Palace hitting back to earn a share of the spoils when Kenne Ogunneye scored early in the second half.
AFC Team Bath completed a double over Reading Royals with a 5-2 win which takes them nearer to the mid-table positions. Holly Miles netted twice, with one apiece from Carly Bryant, Cheryl Baber and Elen King.
