Keynsham Town reached the semi finals of the Premier League Plate last season and they are one stage away from doing it again after they won 3-2 away to Southern Division West Ham Utd.
Whitney Locke gave the Hammers the lead just before half time, with Geovana Alves equalising early in the second half. Stacey Pearson and Yasmin Pratt then gave Keynsham a two-goal advantage and after Shannon Albuery reduced the arrears, the South West Division One side had to safely negotiate the last five minutes.
Actonians Ladies were another team to knock out higher division opposition when they beat Queen's Park Rangers 2-1. Sinead Friel and Melissa Jung gave Actonians a two-goal lead and although Rangers pulled a late goal back through Sara Ezzahiri, Actonians held on to claim a quarter final place.
Huddersfield Town, beaten finalists two seasons ago, also progressed through but only after winning a penalty shootout against Bradford City after the sides had shared a 2-2 draw. All of the goals came during the first half, Kate Mallin twice giving Huddersfield the lead with Lucy Sowerby and Laura Elford equalising on each occasion, and after extra time could not produce a winner, Huddersfield triumphed 4-3 on penalties to finally decide a closely contested tie.
Leicester City Women meanwhile came through a tough tie with a 5-3 victory away to Chorley. Sophie Domingo scored twice for Leicester along with Nat Johnson, Charlotte Greengrass and Alex Madden whilst Chorley, who twice led during the match, replied through Chaneece Reeves, Sam Cadwallader and Charlotte Higginson.
The Merseyside derby culminated in a narrow 2-1 win for Tranmere Rovers against Mossley Hill. Heather Scheuber gave Tranmere a seventh minute lead and an own goal put them two ahead, before Megan Brodie pulled one back for Mossley early in the second half.
Radcliffe Olympic meanwhile swept into the quarter finals, thanks to a 5-0 success away to Leicester City Ladies.
Two second half goals earned Luton Town a 2-0 victory over Stevenage Ladies. Jess McKay and Joanne Rutherford were Luton's markswomen as they reached the last eight for the first time.
