Arsenal edged out Everton 2-1 in the tie of the round to reach the semi finals of the F.A.Women's Cup once more.
The first half ended goalless but the Gunners took the lead just before the hour mark as Ellen White headed in a cross from Rachel Yankey. Kim Little doubled the advantage with a fine solo effort and although Michelle Hinnigan pulled a goal back late on for Everton, they could not prevent their Cup hopes being ended by Arsenal for the second year in a row.
Birmingham City are into the last four for only the third time in their history and on the first occasion since 1988 after running out 4-0 winners over Sunderland. Kerys Harrop gave them the lead midway through the first half by converting a cross from Jodie Taylor, who doubled their advantage two minutes later. Harrop then scored her second shortly before half time after being set up by Rachel Williams. Eniola Aluko rounded off the victory for the Blues by adding the fourth goal late on.
Bristol Academy eased into the semi finals with a comfortable 3-0 win against Blackburn Rovers. Michelle Green put them ahead after seven minutes and Laura Del Rio scored the second with a cross-shot, with Corinne Yorston being credited with the third as her free kick from a narrow angle found the net (see match report).
Chelsea completed the semi final line up by winning 2-0 away to Doncaster Rovers Belles, to avenge their defeat by the home side in last season's competition. Gemma Bonner has had an amazing few days - the teenage defender received her first England call up this week and she celebrated by giving Chelsea the lead. Dunia Susi sewed up the win with the second goal, ten minutes from time.
