Brighton & Hove Albion recorded one of the most extraordinary results seen in the SSE Women's Cup when they handed out a 10-0 defeat to WSL 2 side Oxford Utd.
Kate Natkiel and Charlotte Gurr led the scoring with a hat-trick apiece for the Seagulls, who are WSL hopefuls themselves. Amy Taylor weighed in with a brace and there was one apiece from Sophie Perry and Lisa Fulgence.
Durham Women made the long trip to the capital a worthwhile one, by scoring nine times without reply away to London Bees. In one of two all-WSL clashes in the Third Round, Beth Hepple hit a hat-trick for the Wildcats, Jordan Atkinson and Natalie Gutteridge added two apiece and the total was completed by Chloe Macek and Jess White.
Sheffield FC's first ever competitive match as a WSL club ended in a 5-1 victory over a valiant Leicester City Women side. Half time came with the scoreline goalless but the prolific Jodie Michalska hit a hat-trick inside the opening six minutes to put the match firmly in Sheffield's favour. Ellie Gilliatt then bagged a brace before Leicester scored a consolation goal late on through Lauren Handley.
Aston Villa meanwhile came through a tough tie against Portsmouth with a 1-0 victory. Katie Wilkinsom settled a tight game by volleying home the only goal, midway through the second half.
Millwall Lionesses progressed to the Fourth Round by winning 3-1 away to Watford after extra time. Naomi Cole gave Millwall a lead which was cancelled out midway through the second half by Anneka Nuttall. The game went into the extra period where two goals from debutant Lucy Loomes settled matters in Millwall's favour.
Gillingham's fine Cup run has come to an end but only just, going down to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur. The Gills gave a good account of themselves but Bianca Baptiste scored the only goal of the game from a first half free kick while Avilla Bergin had an effort ruled out for offside.
Another closely fought match saw Sporting Club Albion progress at the expense of Coventry Utd, also by a 1-0 scoreline. A strike from Natalie Poole separated the sides in heavy conditions.
Former winners Everton powered into the next round by scoring seven times without reply past Stoke City. Emily Hollinshead netted two of the goals and she was joined on the scoresheet by Simone Magill, Michelle Hinnigan, Claudia Walker, Kelly Jones and Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah.
Charlton Athletic matched the highest score on the day as they bagged a ten-goal haul against Newcastle Utd. Gemma Shepherd was on target five times for the Addicks, Kit Graham contributed a hat-trick and the tally was completed by Stef Simmons and an own goal.
Blackburn Rovers had a much happier trip to London, returning home with a 7-0 victory under their belts. Lynda Shepherd scored a hat-trick for the Lancashire side, Saffron Jordan netted twice and also on target were Sophie Jones and Ali Johnson (see match report).
Four ties are yet to be played as the dreadful weather in the South West and East Midlands took its toll on the other games, which are set to be played next Sunday.
