Stoke City eliminated the last remaining Regional League club in the SSE Women's FA Cup when they won 2-0 away to Whitley Bay.
The first half was goalless, with Ashleigh Hayes opening the scoring for Stoke nine minutes after the restart. Whitley's brave resistance was finally ended with four minutes remaining when Abby Hunt scored the second goal to seal a trip to Everton in the Third Round.
Queen's Park Rangers were also given a hard tie by Chichester City before emerging as 4-3 winners from a thrilling game. Amy Found gave Chichester the lead from the penalty spot, with Jo Wilson levelling the scores before half time. Early in the second half, Rangers had a penalty of their own which was converted by Danielle Puddefoot, with Wilson doubling their advantage with her second goal. An own goal by Laura Cooper reduced the arrears, which was quickly restored by Natalie Richardson and although Found netted a second for Chi ten minutes from time, Rangers saw the game out for a hard earned win and an away tie with Bristol City.
West Ham Utd were another team to come through a well contested tie with a 2-1 success at Crystal Palace. All of the goals were scored in the first half, Freya Holdaway opening the scoring for Palace before the Hammers hit back through Romina Pinna and Whitney Locke to give them a lead which they held until the end. West Ham must wait and see who their Third Round opponents will be as the tie between Nuneaton Town and Blackburn Rovers was postponed.
Bradford City booked themselves a trip to Yeovil Town after they defeated Huddersfield Town 3-0. Hannah Campbell was on target twice and Sarah Danby added the other goal to help Bradford get past their Yorkshire rivals.
Loughborough Foxes also went through with a 4-1 victory over Guiseley AFC Vixens. Vicky Brackenbury netted two of the goals and she was joined on the scoresheet by Emma Pilling and Audrey Moore. The Foxes will be at home to Lewes in the next round.
Tottenham Hotspur secured themselves a Third Round trip to Gillingham when they defeated Swindon Town 4-1. Leah Rawle and Avilla Bergin each scored twice for Spurs, with the home side - who were beaten for the first time in any competition this season - grabbed a consolation through Alex Hurst (see match report).
