League leaders Arsenal kept alive their perfect record with a comfortable 4-0 home win against Leeds Carnegie.
Katie Chapman gave the Gunners a fifth-minute lead when she drove through the midfield and shot from just outside the box, giving the Leeds goalkeeper no chance. That was doubled 14 minutes later when summer signing Niamh Fahey scored her first goal for the club with a thunderous shot into the top corner.
Julie Fleeting added the third goal 20 minutes into the second half when Gemma Davison skipped passed the Leeds left back and crossed for Fleeting to volley into the back of the net. Yvonne Tracy completed the scoring two minutes before time following a corner.
The victory not only maintained Arsenal's 100 per cent record but also took their goal aggregate to 48-8 after just eight league matches.
