Brighton & Hove Albion are the opening day leaders of the Southern Division after scoring five without reply against WFC Fulham.
Chantelle Hedge opened the scoring for the Seagulls on the quarter hour and Amy Found added a second midway through the first half. After the break, Kim Stenning extended the lead before Amy Grist netted a fourth and Kim Whitcombe rounded off the victory.
Last season's runners-up Barnet have started well with a 3-1 victory over Cardiff City. Cheryl Williams gave the Bees a first half lead before Stacey Sowden netted twice after the break, with Zoe Atkins replying.
Colchester Utd are another side to begin confidently, running out 3-0 winners away to Crystal Palace. Alice Nutman put them in front in the sixth minute and second half strikes from Sinead Redford and Lily Mellors sealed the points.
Reading FC Women have switched across from the Northern Division this season and their opening match resulted in a notable 2-1 success at Portsmouth. Natasha Caswell netted the only goal of the first half for Reading and, although Leeta Rutherford equalised for the home side, Danielle Puddefoot settled matters midway through the second half.
The division's other newcomers, Queen's Park Rangers, began life back in the Premier League with a 1-0 local derby victory over Charlton Athletic, Cherelle Albert scoring the only goal of the game.
West Ham Utd looked to be on their way to an opening day victory but a second half fightback from Keynsham Town ensured that the spoils would be shared in a 2-2 draw. The Hammers started strongly with Gemma Shepherd giving them the lead and Jess Barling swept home the second following a free kick. However, Ana Bruni gave Keynsham hope midway through the second half when she pulled a goal back and Kayleigh Sage completed the comeback with fifteen minutes remaining.
