Sporting Club Albion caused a surprise in the Fourth Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup with a 3-1 victory away to FA WSL newcomers Sheffield FC.
Carla Ward gave Sheffield the lead but the home side were stunned as Billie Haynes levelled the scores and Abi Cottam went on to score twice, including one from the penalty spot.
The FA Women's Premier League sides certainly gave a good account of themselves against higher ranked opponents, including Tottenham Hotspur taking Aston Villa to extra time before Villa emerged as 3-2 winners. Indeed, Spurs twice took the lead during the course of the game through a brace of goals from Bianca Baptiste but Destiney Toussaint and Mollie Rouse equalised on each occasions to take the game into the extra period where a Katie Wilkinson penalty finally saw Villa go through to the last sixteen.
Loughborough Foxes also went to extra time in their tie with Millwall Lionesses after a goalless ninety minutes before finally going down 2-1. Naomi Cole and Danielle Carlton both scored for Millwall to finally break the Foxes' resistance, although the plucky Northern Division side gave them a scare late on when Millie Chandarana pulled a goal back.
Durham Women came safely through a tough tie against former winners Charlton Athletic with a 3-1 victory. Beth Hepple's opener for Durham was cancelled out by prolific Addicks striker Gemma Shepherd but the turning point of the game came when Kit Graham's penalty was saved by Wildcats goalkeeper Helen Alderson. Natalie Gutteridge then went on to score twice to seal a hard earned win for Durham.
Everton continued their impressive early form in the Cup by running out 5-0 winners over Nottingham Forest. Kelly Jones and Claudia Walker both scored for the Toffees in the five minute spell before half time and after the break, Michelle Hinnigan netted twice and Emily Hollinshead completed the scoring.
Brighton & Hove Albion are the other remaining Premier League club in the competition following their 2-1 success against Blackburn Rovers. The Seagulls went ahead with three minutes on the clock through Kate Natkiel, a lead they held until midway through the second half when Lynda Shepherd equalised from the penalty spot. A well contested tie was settled with nine minutes remaining when Amy Taylor scored the winning goal for Brighton.
