Tottenham Hotspur are one of two remaining Premier League clubs in the SSE Women's FA Cup after they beat FA WSL newcomers Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0.
Bianca Baptiste scored the only goal of the game to earn Spurs a prestigious victory over the Seagulls and take them into the Fifth Round, where they stand a good chance of meeting a FA WSL 1 side.
West Bromwich Albion are the other FAWPL team to reach the last sixteen following a 2-1 win against fellow Northern Division side Leicester City Women. Both of Albion's goals came in the opening quarter of the match, Leigh Dugmore and Abi Cottam putting them two ahead with Hayley James netting a second half consolation for Leicester.
The tie between Durham Women and Everton was as tight as expected and it was the Toffees who progressed on a penalty shootout after coming back to force a 2-2 draw. The Wildcats led 2-0 at the break after Beth Hepple and Becky Salicki netted in quick succession, before Everton hit back in the second half and levelled through Michelle Hinnigan and Simone Magill. Extra time could not separate the sides and Magill scored what turned out to be the winning penalty when Durham captain Sara Wilson missed the target.
The Yorkshire derby went the way of Doncaster Rovers Belles who were narrow 1-0 winners over Sheffield FC. The only goal of the game came in controversial circumstances during the first half when Sheffield were penalised for handball in the area and Courtney Sweetman-Kirk slotting home the resulting penalty.
Aston Villa safely negotiated a tough tie away to Coventry Utd with a hard fought 1-0 victory. Coventry went into the game having beaten a WSL side in the previous round but Katy Moran settled matters when she volleyed in the solitary goal on the quarter hour, although Villa needed to stand firm against Coventry pressure in order to secure the result.
Millwall Lionesses were another team to see off spirited opponents when they defeated Nottingham Forest 3-1. Ashlee Hincks scored twice and Ashley Cheatley added the other, with Katie Lowder replying (see match report).
