Bees stung by Cousins strike

Bees stung by Cousins strike - 17 Mar 2014 - Women's Football NewsCardiff City Ladies produced the result of the Fourth Round in the F.A.Women's Cup when they defeated FA WSL2 newcomers London Bees 1-0 after extra time. 
 
The Premier League Southern Division leaders claimed victory when Nicola Cousins scored the only goal of the game five minutes into the extra period. The South Wales side held out to claim their place in the last sixteen, having not conceded a goal in the competition so far.
 
Blackburn Rovers came very close to causing an upset themselves before losing 2-0 to Reading Women, also after extra time. The Premier League side had a great chance when they were awarded a penalty during the second half but Rio Hardy's kick was saved by Nicola Davies. Reading themselves missed chances during the game but eventually sealed their place in the Fifth Round with goals from strike duo Francesca Kirby and Helen Ward.
 
Crystal Palace's superb Cup run has come to an end but only just, going down to a 3-2 defeat at home to Portsmouth. In front of a large and noisy crowd, the London & South East League side gave a great account of themselves but it was Pompey who made it through, thanks to a Gemma Simmonds brace and Gemma Hillier.
 
Combination League interest also came to an end as Copsewood (Coventry) were beaten 4-1 by Doncaster Rovers Belles at the Keepmoat Stadium but they were far from disgraced on the day. The Belles got the start they wanted when Leandra Little gave them the lead in the second minute and Beth England added a second, but Copsewood hit back and 18-year-old Leah Williams reduced the arrears before half time. Doncaster were to score early in the second half though as England grabbed her second and despite Nikki Duncan having a fine game in goal for Copsewood, Jess Sigsworth rounded off the win for the Belles with the final goal.
 
Durham Women are through to the Fifth Round after overcoming a very tough tie against Sheffield FC, winning 3-1. The Northern Division leaders have been in prime form in recent weeks and after a goalless first half which they dominated, Sheffield took the lead shortly afterwards the restart through the prolific Jodie Michalska. Durham's response was strong, Beth Hepple levelling the scores via a 40-yard free kick before Scotland Under-19 international Zoe Ness settled matters in her side's favour by scoring twice in quick succession.
 
Sunderland booked their place in the last sixteen once again, thanks to an impressive 4-1 victory over Watford. The Wearsiders produced a scintillating first half performance in which they scored all four goals, Gemma Wilson giving them the lead with Abbey Joice adding the second, before Beth Mead weighed in with a brace to put her side firmly in the driving seat. Watford tightened up after the break and pulled a goal back through Kate Natkiel but the result was never in doubt.
