With Leeds City Vixens not playing, a win would have seen Stockport County take over the leadership but instead they went down to a 2-1 defeat away to Scunthorpe Utd. Natasha Cook and Donna Smithson netted the goals to give Scunthorpe their first victory of the campaign.
Bradford City could also have gone level on points with the leaders but they also suffered a defeat, being beaten 2-1 by West Auckland Town who also recorded their first victory of the season. Kerry Denham settled matters in West Auckland's favour on the day by netting both her team's goals.
Salford Sports consolidated their position in the top half of the table, thanks to a 3-2 victory at Morley Spurs with goals from Charlotte O'Connor, Chloe Llewellyn and Chelsea Scholes.

South East Combination
Only one match managed to survive the weather in the league on Sunday, at Enfield Town where the home side moved into third place with a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
