Everton cruise into semi finals - 4 Sep 2011 - Women's Football NewsChelsea 0
Everton 4 (Harries 4, Dowie 29, Williams 65, Hinnigan 69)

Everton moved comfortably into the semi finals of the Continental Cup with a 4-0 victory over Chelsea. 
Two goals in each half settled the tie in Everton's favour and, though Chelsea briefly threatened a comeback for the first fifteen minutes of the second half, they were well beaten by a fluent and powerful display from the Toffees.
Unlike in the WSL match the previous week, Everton scored early when Natasha Dowie broke clear on the right and crossed for Gwennan Harries to slot home from ten yards .Pressing high up the pitch and winning most of the loose balls, Everton did not allow the home team to settle. Sarah Quantrill twice denied Dowie. the second save coming when a fine passing sequence between Fara Williams, Jill Scott and Toni Duggan had sent Dowie clear and the Chelsea keeper made a fine block.
Sadly, the second goal came from an error as Dowie pounced on a poorly controlled back pass and rounded the stranded keeper just before the half hour.
The rare Chelsea attacks were comfortably defended by the Everton defence, Gemma Bonner's header from a Danni Buet corner being about the only threat on Rachel Brown's goal. Everton went very close to a third right on the break as Kylie Davies deflected a goalbound Dowie effort from a Rachel Unitt cross on to the bar and Quantrill blocked Michelle Hinnigan's follow up.
The break and a reshuffle gave Chelsea new impetus. Helen Lander had a shot well saved by Brown, Ashlee Hincks was then very unlucky as she shot past Brown but Lindsay Johnson deflected the ball over the bar. Drew Spence powered a header just over from the resulting corner as Chelsea threatened a comeback.
However, it was Everton who scored the vital third goal. Quantrill made a fine save from a Williams power drive which was heading for the bottom left of her goal but the England midfielder scored directly from the corner despite Buet's effort to clear from under the bar on 65 minutes.
Dowie, who was a constant menace to the Chelsea defence, broke clear on the right and sent over a low cross which Hinnigan was able to convert for the fourth. Brown denied Lander again with another fine save as Chelsea sought to end their miserable season on a high note but they were always under threat from break away attacks.
Everton substitute Brooke Chaplen nearly added a fifth against her former team when set up fifteen yards out but she shot just over in the final minutes.
Chelsea: Sarah Quantrill, Danni Buet, Gemma Bonner, Kylie Davies, Sophie Perry, Hayley Morwood (sub Shelby Hills 45mins), Laura Coombs, Leanne Champ, Becky Jane (sub Drew Spence 55mins), Ashlee Hincks (sub Kate Longhurst 82mins), Helen Lander. Subs not used: Naomi Cole, Lara Fay.

Everton: Rachel Brown, Becky Easton, Rachel Unitt, Fara Williams (sub Brooke Chaplen 76mins), Fern Whelan, Lucy Bronze (sub Lindsay Johnson 43mins), Gwennan Harries (sub Jody Handley 45mins), Jill Scott, Natasha Dowie, Michelle Hinnigan, Toni Duggan. Subs not used: Amy Kane, Danelle Hill.
