Premier League Cup holders Sheffield FC went through to the last sixteen as they edged past Tottenham Hotspur with a 1-0 victory, Lynn Goodman scoring the only goal of the game.
Cardiff City Ladies, beaten finalists last season, enjoyed a much smoother passage as they ran out 9-0 winners over Guiseley AFC Vixens. Kelly Aldridge led the scoring with a five-goal haul, Naomi Clipston added a brace and there was one apiece from Lauren Townsend and Michelle Green.
C & K Basildon were one of two teams to eliminate a higher division opponent when they put out Queen's Park Rangers. However it was only by the slimmest of margins as the teams battled out a 1-1 draw, Zoe Rushen giving C & K the lead with Kasha Petit equalising for Rangers. Extra time could not separate the teams and a lengthy penalty shootout ensued before the South East Division One leaders emerged as 9-8 winners.
The other team to achieve this was Mossley Hill and they also went to extra time in their 3-2 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Dani Selmes gave Wolves a first half lead which was cancelled out after the break by Carla Lee. Jordan Timmins-Ray put Wolves back in front within two minutes of the extra period but goals either side of the break from Kayleigh McDonald and Sophie Perry saw Mossley progress.

Brighton & Hove Albion swept into the Second Round on the back of an impressive 4-0 success away to Derby County. The Seagulls went in front with a goal by Deanna Cooper just before half time and Fliss Gibbons added a second, before Charlotte Gurr and Jay Blackie netted late goals to crown the victory.
Blackburn Rovers meanwhile safely negotiated a difficult away trip to Forest Green Rovers with a 7-0 win. Danielle Sheen was on target twice for Rovers along with Lynda Shepherd, Amie Fleming, Katie Anderton, Jess Holbrook and Millie Chandarana.
Jess Foster and Niamh McLaughlin were on the scoresheet as Newcastle Utd won 2-1 against Morecambe, whose consolation came from Georgia Lupton.
