Barnet swept into the last sixteen of the F.A.Women's Cup with a 3-0 victory over Sporting Club Albion.
Emma Davies scored twice and Cheryl Williams added the other from the penalty spot to take the Bees, who have been beaten semi finalists in each of the last two seasons, through to the Fifth Round once again.
Sunderland are another team who have done well in recent seasons in the Cup and they stormed through by scoring seven without reply away to Cardiff City. Kelly McDougall led the scoring for the Wearsiders with a four-goal haul and she was joined on the scoresheet by Beth Mead, Gemma Wilson and Rachel Lee.
Former winners Charlton Athletic are through to the last sixteen once again, thanks to a 2-0 win against Derby County. Emma Beckett and Fliss Gibbons scored the goals to see the Addicks progress at the expense of the in-form Rams.
The other all-National Division tie went the way of Leeds Utd, who were 2-1 winners away to Coventry City. Leah Galton gave Leeds a first half lead with a well taken goal and early in the second half, Coventry were back on level terms when Leanne McKenna headed home from a free kick. Leeds went back in front just after the hour as a Stacey Emmonds cross was headed in by Carey Huegett and Leeds held on under late Coventry pressure to clinch victory.
Manchester City are one step away from reaching the quarter finals for the first time after they won 2-0 at Enfield Town. An opportunist strike from Becky Grocott put City ahead just before half time and Sarah Buffel converted a Krystle Johnston cross to sew up the win midway through the second half.
Keynsham Town kept up their rejuvenated form as they defeated Sheffield FC 5-2 to reach the Fifth Round for the first time. Naomi Clipston and Kayleigh Sage gave them an early two-goal lead and Leanne Lapham added the third from the penalty spot before Jodie Michalska pulled a goal back on the stroke of half time. There were chances at both ends in the second half before Michalska renewed Sheffield hopes with her second goal. Lapham missed from the penalty spot but Keynsham nerves were settled as Polly Wardle fired home a powerful strike and Ashley Reinecke netted the fifth with a superb header.
Blackburn Rovers are another team to have enjoyed good Cup runs in the past and they made it through with a 2-0 success at Preston North End. (scorers to follow)
The last remaining Regional League club bowed out of the competition as Larkhall Athletic were beaten 3-0 by Brighton & Hove Albion who scored through Kirsty Barton, Sarah Hinton and Lucy Somes (see match report).
