Preston end Durham's run
 Women's Football News 14 Feb 2012
Four F.A.Women's Cup Third Round ties managed to survive the weather on the weekend and three Premier League clubs came through awkward ties against lower league opposition. 
Durham Wildcats, the last remaining County League side, went out of the competition but were far from disgraced when going down 2-0 at home to Preston North End.
The first half was goalless but two goals in a five minute spell midway through the second proved to be decisive. Melissa Ball gave Preston the lead on 63 minutes and four minutes later, Gemma Watson put the game beyond Durham's reach when she netted from the penalty spot. Preston will be at home to either Nottingham Forest or Blackburn Rovers in the Fourth Round.
Manchester City also progressed with a 4-1 victory over Oxford Utd, whose impressive Cup run also came to an end. Two strikes from Sarah Buffel gave City a two-goal lead inside the opening quarter hour but Ellie Roberts hit back straight away for the Southern Region League side. Oxford's resistance was finally broken fifteen minutes from time when Amanda Goodwin netted City's third and substitute Becky Grocott rounded off the scoring late on. City must now play away to the winners of the tie between Enfield Town and MSA Ladies.
Cardiff City were another side to come through an awkward away tie, winning 2-1 against Leicester City Ladies of the Midland Combination. In front of a crowd in excess of 400, Leicester took an early lead through Katie Bateman but Amie Lea levelled immediately for the National Division side. A well contested game was settled just after the hour in style as Bethan Lloyd fired home a 25-yard shot to send her side into the Fourth Round, where they will face Sunderland or Rotherham Utd.
Keynsham Town won the only all-Premier League tie to be played on the day, beating Gillingham 4-1. Despite going down to an early Natalie Crinean goal, Keynsham belied their position in the Southern Division table to book themselves a home tie with Portsmouth or Sheffield FC via a Suzanne Grant double, Ashley Reinecke and Kelly Aldridge (see match report).
