Holders knocked out by late Marisa goal
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 28 Mar 2017
Birmingham City ousted SSE Women's FA Cup holders Arsenal from this season's competition by beating them 1-0 to reach the semi finals.
The Blues had to withstand pressure during the first half and goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger was in fine form, making good saves from Danielle Carter and Jodie Taylor. After the break, Birmingham came into the game much more and on 77 minutes, they broke the deadlock when Ellie Brazil cut the ball back for Marisa Ewers to bury her shot in the top corner of the net. Ellen White went close to scoring a second late on but it is Birmingham who take a step closer towards reaching their first FA Cup Final in five years.
Manchester City were pushed all the way until the dying minutes by Bristol City but Nick Cushing's side emerged as 2-1 winners to become the only side to record an away victory in the Fifth and Sixth rounds. The reigning Champions took an early lead when Lucy Bronze's was punched away by Caitlin Leach but cannoned back off City captain Hayley Ladd and into the net. The home side picked themselves up and equalised on the stroke of half time through a well taken goal from Claire Emslie and in the second half, the Vixens withstood increasing pressure from the Citizens until six minutes from time when a deflected effort by Nikita Parris gave Man City the goal they needed to match their best ever run in the competition to date.
Liverpool are the other remaining team to have never won the Cup and they kept those hopes alive with a 2-0 victory over Notts County. The Reds have not had the best of records against the Lady Pies in recent seasons but got off to a great start when Caroline Weir gave them a third minute lead with a low shot. County hit back with Rachel Williams going close but Liverpool added a second when Natasha Harding curled a shot home midway through the first half. Both teams had opportunities from that point but there was to be no more scoring and Liverpool take their place in the last four.
Chelsea are one step away from a third successive trip to Wembley after they overcame an early setback to run out 5-1 winners over Sunderland. Lucy Staniforth put the Wearsiders ahead early on from the penalty spot before Chelsea hit back with two goals apiece from Ramona Bachmann and Hannah Blundell, before a late header from Drew Spence completed the scoring (see match report).
