Weston injury mars superb Blues win
 Women's Football News 23 Mar 2015
Birmingham City are through to the quarter finals of the F.A.Women's Cup after winning the only all-WSL 1 Fifth Round tie, 3-1 against Champions Liverpool. 
However the win was marred for the Blues as full back Chelsea Weston was stretchered off with a suspected cruciate ligament injury. Before this, Birmingham had taken the lead through a goal from Jade Moore with Natasha Dowie equalising shortly afterwards. Jo Potter then restored the Blues' lead with a superbly taken 20-yard free kick on the stroke of half time. Birmingham sealed the win late on when Remi Allen scored from the penalty spot following a foul on Freda Ayisi.
Holders Arsenal eased into the last eight by scoring seven times without reply away to Millwall Lionesses. Danielle Carter led the scoring with a hat-trick, Lianne Sanderson added one on her competitive return to the club and debutant Natalia Pablos Sanchon also got on the scoresheet along with Jordan Nobbs and Carla Humphrey.
Charlton Athletic are the last remaining Premier League club in the competition, following their 2-1 success away to Coventry City. The day was also a memorable one for Addicks striker Kit Graham, who scored both goals to take her to the top of the club's all time goalscoring charts. Maz Gauntlett replied for the Sky Blues but they could not get back on level terms and the winners in 2005 are through to the quarter finals once again.
There is also one WSL 2 club left, Aston Villa who defeated Sheffield FC 2-0. Both of Villa's goals came in the second half, Katie Wilkinson giving them the lead from the penalty spot following a foul on Olivia Fergusson, who sealed the win by scoring the second goal herself. (see match report)
Manchester City emerged as 3-1 winners from a tough tie at home to Doncaster Rovers Belles. In the first competitive women's match at the new Academy Stadium, Leandra Little gave the Belles a great start by putting them in front with Nikita Parris equalising on the half hour. The game remained in the balance until the last ten minutes, when Parris gave City the lead for the first time with her second goal and substitute Toni Duggan, on her return from injury, wrapped up the win in injury time.
Chelsea powered into the last eight on the back of a 6-0 victory over Watford. Ji So-Yun had Chelsea in front after ten minutes with an arrowing strike into the corner, before Marija Banusic doubled the advantage four minutes later. Gemma Davison found the back of the net from the penalty spot after half an hour before Banusic's header made it four moments before the break. Banusic completed her hat-trick midway through the second period before fellow debutant Millie Bright rounded the scoring with a late header.
Notts County ended the fine Cup run of Tottenham Hotspur by beating them 4-0 at Meadow Lane. Sophie Walton opened the scoring for the Lady Pies after sixteen minutes but Spurs remained one goal behind going into the interval. However in the first minute of the second half, Ellen White added the second goal for County and Fiona O'Sullivan crowned the win with two late goals, both from corners.
