Barnet returned to league action from their F.A.Women's Cup exploits and extended their lead at the top of the Southern Division to five points with a 5-2 win away to Cardiff City.
Cheryl Williams gave the Bees a fifteenth minute lead which was cancelled out by Cori Williams, but Stacey Sowden quickly put Barnet back in front. Williams netted her second for Barnet and Nicola Cousins brought Cardiff back into the game just ahead of the interval. Sowden then completed her double after the hour mark and Claire Thomas wrapped up the points, ten minutes from time.
Barnet were further boosted by the news that their two nearest rivals, Reading FC Women and Portsmouth, had battled out a 2-2 draw in their meeting. Pompey had gone into a two-goal lead during the first half, thanks to a double from Zoe Nash, but Reading hit back after the break to earn a share of the spoils through Danielle Puddefoot and Melissa Fletcher.
West Ham Utd drew for the eighth time this season, 1-1 against Keynsham Town. The two goals came either side of half time, Nina Downham putting the Hammers ahead three minutes before the interval and Brianna Oeser equalising in the opening minute of the second half.
Honours were also shared at Queen's Park Rangers where the resulting 1-1 draw extended the unbeaten run of Brighton & Hove Albion. Jo Morris gave Brighton the lead on the quarter hour from the penalty spot, with Sophie Fogarty hitting back for Rangers nine minutes later.
The only team apart from Barnet to record a victory on Sunday was Charlton Athletic, who were 2-0 winners away to WFC Fulham. The first half finished goalless but Kallie Balfour opened the scoring for Addicks ten minutes after the break, with Kristina Manktelow sealing the points midway through the second half.
Crystal Palace picked up only their second point of the season when battling out a goalless draw with Colchester Utd, who remain just below mid-table.
