Premier League Cup holders Sunderland advanced into the quarter finals with an impressive 7-2 win against Northern Division table toppers Sheffield FC.
Beth Mead's early strike was equalised by Lisa Giampalma but Kelly McDougall soon had Sunderland back in front when she curled home a free kick. Rachel Furness hit the bar with a powerful shot before Mead extended Sunderland's lead with a clever finish. The predatory Mead completed her hat-trick early in the second half and an own goal from the unfortunate Ellie Gilliatt sent the Wearsiders further ahead. Rachel Furness drove home the sixth and Sophie Williams rounded off the scoring for the home side, before Kayleigh Mitchell scored a late consolation for Sheffield via a free kick.
Barnet are also into the last eight but were given a hard time by Lewes in their 2-1 victory. There were no goals in the first half but Helen King broke the deadlock on 65 minutes to send the Bees in front. Lewes hit back and equalised seven minutes later through Andreia Veiga to take the match into extra time, where Stacey Sowden netted the only goal to take the 2011 League Cup winners through.
Leeds Utd moved one step closer towards a fourth Final appearance in six years as they beat a plucky Yeovil Town side 1-0 at Huish Park. In front of a noisy and partisan home crowd, Tanya Rich's neat lob on 52 minutes proved to be enough to take her side through (see match report).
