Chelsea's hopes of going back on top of the National Division were shattered as Arsenal fought back from two goals down to beat them 3-2.
Chelsea got off to a flying start with Lianne Sanderson giving them the lead in the opening minute and another former Arsenal player, Leanne Champ, doubling their advantage just seven minutes later.
After the break, substitute Jennifer Beattie reduced the arrears and levelled the scores midway through the second half. Beattie then completed a stunning comeback with her hat-trick goal, settling the match in injury time.
There was more late action at Watford where the home side were denied the chance to go second when drawing 2-2 with Birmingham City. After a goalless first half, Isobel Christiansen, recently signed from Everton, put the Blues in front but goals from Holly Miles and Sam Pittuck looked to have sealed the points for Watford. However Christiansen capped her debut by earning her side a point with an injury time equaliser.
Doncaster Rovers Belles are back in the top half of the table after beating Bristol Academy 2-0. Emma Johnson opened the scoring for the Belles in the tenth minute and Vicky Exley made the game safe with the second goal, six minutes from time.
Nottingham Forest and Millwall Lionesses each picked up an important point as they battled out a 1-1 draw. Millwall led through a 27th minute goal from Lindsay Morgan, before Forest hit back for a share of the spoils when Reanne Thomas equalised midway through the second half.
