It was not the greatest of days for the Combination League teams in the Third Round Qualifying on Sunday as no less than seven of them became victims of clubs playing at a lower level.
The biggest name casualty was probably that of former runners-up Southampton Saints, beaten 1-0 by Gloucester City who play two divisions below them, Laura Meheran scoring the only goal of the game. City's reward is not a great one though, they have been drawn away to South West Combination high fliers Chichester City who ended the Cup run of AFC Wimbledon Development by defeating them 8-0. Kally Ambler netted four times for the Sussex side, Lauren Cheshire contributed a hat-trick and Georgina Starkey was also on target.
Rotherham Utd went down to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Nettleham whose goals came via a Zuzie Pramukova double and Sarah Priestley. The East Midlands League side are now away to Midland Combination leaders Copsewood (Coventry), 7-0 winners over Long Eaton Utd. Kirstie Deacon scored twice for Copsewood along with Misty Makinde, Natalie Dean, Rebecca Knights, Sarah Rowles and Hannah Jones.
Nikko Berko scored twice, with Abby Pullen and Rachel Warren adding the others a Blackpool Wren Rovers also notched up a notable victory, 4-2 against Mossley Hill who have been on good Cup runs in recent seasons. Rovers will be at home to Hull City who also claimed a Combination scalp, a 4-2 victory over Curzon Ashton. Rebecca Beech spearheaded the win for Hull by blasting a second half hat-trick to add to an earlier strike from Zoe Mitchell.
FC Reedswood picked up a fine 3-2 win over Mansfield Town, goals coming from Megan Wilton, Kelly Williams and Charlotte Ranaivosoa. Their reward is a home tie against Leicester City Ladies who triumphed on penalties after battling out a 2-2 draw in their local derby with Leicester City Women, Amanda Whalley and Erica Kilby scoring their goals.
Gosport Borough had a happy trip to the Isle of Wight where they knocked out Shanklin, Gemma Green giving them a 1-0 win with a goal just before the hour mark. The Hampshire side will now travel to Exeter City who put six without reply past Parley Sports, including doubles from Lola Sanchez and Tash Knapman with Josie Copp and Kirsty Caunter completing the tally.
Kikk Utd kept up their good Cup run as they knocked out Luton Town on penalties after the sides had drawn 2-2, Naomi Stirling and Morag Mitchell-Carvalho having scored their goals as they came from two goals behind to force spot kicks. Next up for Kikk are C & K Basildon who eased through with a 4-0 victory over Brentwood Town with doubles from Sarah Sinclair and Jenny Brown-Wealls, who netted both from the penalty spot.
The most astonishing game of the day though took place at Brighouse Town where they shared sixteen goals with City of Manchester before the home side eventually won on a penalty shootout. Sonni Sweeney scored five times with Debbie Tomlinson, Claire Needham and Jayne Smith netting the others. Sweeney, Amy Hesselden, Tomlinson, Jayne Smith and Aleathia Smith then all scored penalties for Brighouse who must wait and see who their next opponents will be as the tie between Leeds City Vixens and Whitley Bay was postponed.

Nicole Goundry and Rachel Kay each bagged hat-tricks with Laura Finch (2), Lisa Garbutt and Brogan Prudhoe completing the tally.

Raunds Town's hopes of winning a fourth Cup tie this season came to an end when they were beaten on penalties by TNS Ladies. Emily Ridge, Laura Morris and an own goal found the net for the West Midlands League side as the game finished 3-3 with Morris, Sophie Edwards, Nicola Walford and Jenny Smith successfully converting penalties. TNS are at home to Sandiacre Town who claimed a fine 4-1 victory away to Walsall. Amy Pashley, Farrah O'Connor, Jodie Smith and Natalie Loughenbury were all on the scoresheet for Sandiacre as they won a good game played in good spirit by both teams.
