Arsenal hit six goals for the third match in succession to open up a lead of two points at the top of the Northern Division.
The 6-1 win over troubled Doncaster Rovers Belles was their fifth in a row and began early on when Kim Little gave them the lead. Karen Carney then bagged a double before Kelly Smith added a fourth before half time. After the break, Jayne Ludlow extended the advantage and, despite Liz Hanson pulling a goal back for the Belles, Smith completed the scoring with her second.
Chelsea ran out 3-0 winners over Bristol Academy to go into second place ahead of Everton, whose game against Nottingham Forest was postponed. The pivotal point of the match came shortly before half time, when Lianne Sanderson put the Blues ahead from the penalty spot. Eniola Aluko made the game safe and kept up her fine start to the season with two volleyed goals from corners.
Watford picked up their second win and added to Leeds Carnegie's uncomfortable start to the season. The only goal of the game came in the ninth minute from Helen Lander but Watford, who have now moved into the top half, needed to stand firm under Leeds pressure in order to claim the points.
Liverpool and WFC Fulham battled out a 2-2 draw to earn each side's first point of the season but Fulham will undoubtedly be the happier side after coming from two goals behind. Cheryl Foster and Jo Traynor looked to have given the Reds their first victory but Fulham hit back through a double from Gemma Fraser, which included a last minute equaliser.
The other match between Birmingham City and Blackburn Rovers also fell victim to the weather.
