Plymouth Argyle earned themselves a home tie with Brighton & Hove Albion after beating Exeter City 6-1 in their local derby F.A.Women's Cup Second Round tie.
After three postponements due to the weather, the tie finally got under way at Ivybridge Community College on a 3G pitch.
Argyle drew first blood in only the third minute when Becca Rose blasted home from the penalty spot after Emily Mousley was brought down in the box by Exeter's keeper Vicky Wright. Five minutes later and the visitors were rocked by a second Argyle goal, this time Emily Mousley finishing with a firm shot. On 16 minutes it was 3-0 and again it was Mousley finishing a neat move down the right taking a pass from Ellie Dorey in her stride and clipping the ball over the keeper from the edge of the box.
Argyle started the 2nd half somewhat sluggishly and allowed Exeter to come more into the game, that eventually led to the visitors grabbing a goal back in the 52nd minute. Exeter's left back Marika Ghiglia made her way into the area before producing a shot that found the far corner of the net past the diving Michaela Phillips.
When Argyle got it together once more they were aided by a mix up in the Exeter defence and Mousley completed her hat-trick, smashing the ball into the net from two yards. The fifth goal came courtesy of a Katie Middleton free kick from 25 yards, guiding the ball into the far top corner. Two minutes from time Ellie Dorey got the last touch from close in to round off the scoring.
Sheffield FC meanwhile produced a powerful display to beat Liverpool Feds 1-0. The Premier League side inflicted the majority of the damage on their Northern Combination opponents in the first half, Carla Ward's eighth minute penalty giving them the lead with Jodie Michalska adding the second. Becky Lee, Issy Hayes and Ward put them further ahead before Ellie Gilliatt and Lisa Giampalma also found the net and Ward completed her hat-trick with the eighth goal, on the stroke of half time.
Giampalma netted her second nine minutes into the second half but Feds battled hard after the break and only conceded one more time, Michalska scoring the final goal in injury time. Sheffield are now away to Charlton Athletic in the Third Round.
Chichester City completed a trio of big wins on the day by beating Enfield Town 6-0 to secure a trip to Durham WFC. Kally Ambler and Hollie Wride each scored twice with Lauren Cheshire and Abbey Shrubb adding the others (see match report).
