Charlton Athletic stretched their lead at the top of the Southern Division to two points with a
2-0 victory over Colchester Utd.
Kimberley Dixson put the Addicks in front in the ninth minute and Rosie Webb wrapped up the points with the second goal, midway through the second half.
Keynsham Town leapt back into second place after sweeping to a 4-1 win away to Crystal Palace. Although Kenne Ogunneye gave Palace a fifth minute lead from the penalty spot, Ashley Reinecke got Keynsham back on level terms midway through the half. Ana Bruni netted a second for the Somerset side with fifteen minutes remaining and they sealed the result thanks to two late goals from Frankie Stone.
Millwall Lionesses are in third following their third straight win, 2-1 at previously unbeaten West Ham Utd. Emma Whitter gave the Lionesses a half time lead and, although Sam Pittuck looked to have earned the Hammers a point when equalising two minutes from time, an injury time goal from Leah Jones settled matters in Millwall's favour.
Portsmouth moved into the top half of the table, thanks to a 4-1 victory over Cardiff City. Lisa Langrish and Cassie Thorp gave Pompey a two goal lead inside the opening quarter hour, before Langrish completed her hat-trick with strikes either side of half time. Loren Dykes netted a second half consolation for the South Wales side.
Newly promoted Ipswich Town are coming to terms with the higher level and made sure that the longest journey in the division would be a happy one. The Suffolk side travelled all the way to Cornwall where they defeated Truro City 5-3 despite the home side taking the lead three times in the first half. Emma Pritchard's early goal for Truro was cancelled out by Hannah Wiese, Sarah Mansfield put the Cornish side back in front with Michelle Allum levelling. Dani Barr restored Truro's lead but injury time goals from Wiese and Allum sent Ipswich ahead for the first time. Allum rounded off the win with her hat-trick goal, five minutes from time.
Brighton & Hove Albion claimed their first victory of the season, 2-1 away to Barnet, to lift themselves off the bottom. Yasmin Poole's tenth minute strike for the Seagulls was equalised by Cheryl Williams, but a late goal from Natasha Wells secured three precious points for Brighton.
