Leeds Utd, winners of the trophy two years ago, are still in with a chance of regaining the Premier League Cup after they won 5-2 at Charlton Athletic to reach the semi finals.
Amy Turner gave Leeds a great start by putting them in front in the second minute and further strikes from Carey Huegett, Jess Holbrook and Tanya Rich ensured that they led by four goals at the half hour mark. Megan Chandler gave Charlton a lifeline by pulling one back just before half time. Leah Galton struck seven minutes into the second half with a fifth goal for Leeds to kill off any hopes of a Charlton fightback, although they did score an injury time consolation through Gemma Bryan.
Leeds will be away in the semi finals to Coventry City who came through a tough trip to West Ham Utd with a 2-1 win. Dani Saulter gave the Sky Blues a first half lead which was cancelled out after the break by Kelley Blanchflower, before Courtney Sweetman-Kirk scored the winner for Coventry with eight minutes remaining.
Sunderland are through to the last four for the first time after coming from behind to beat Aston Villa 2-1. Carly Davies put Villa ahead early in the second half but Beth Mead quickly equalised and Nicola Devine scored the winning goal (see match report).
Blackburn Rovers have had a great season in Cup competitions and they complete the semi final line up after they defeated Portsmouth 2-1. Hannah Forster gave them the lead midway through the first half and Carmel Bennett added a second shortly before half time. Leeta Rutherford reduced the arrears for Pompey from the penalty spot with ten minutes left but Blackburn held on to book themselves a semi final trip to Sunderland.
Semi final draw:
Coventry City v Leeds Utd
Sunderland v Blackburn Rovers
