Manchester City survived a huge scare as they went through to the semi finals of the SSE Women's FA Cup with a 4-2 victory at Sunderland after extra time.
Sunderland took the lead just after the half hour with a goal from Victoria Williams and they remained in front until seventeen minutes from time, when Demi Stokes equalised against her old club. Three minutes later though, Lucy Staniforth fired home a superb long range effort to put the Wearsiders back in front and it looked as though this would see her side to a surprise win until Jane Ross kept the holders in the competition with an injury time leveller. Ross then put City ahead for the first time during extra time and substitute Ella Toone clinched the win by netting the fourth.
North Eastern interest in the competition was finally brought to an end as Durham Women also bowed out, beaten 6-1 by Everton. Courtney Sweetman-Kirk gave Everton a first half lead with Olivia Chance adding a second before the break. Sweetman-Kirk made it three and Danielle Turner increased the Toffees' lead, with Sweetman-Kirk completing her hat-trick shortly afterwards. Sarah Robson pulled a goal back for the WSL 2 side but Everton were not finished on the day, Jodie Brett rounding off the scoring when she headed home the final goal.
Arsenal swept into the last four with a 5-0 victory over Charlton Athletic, who had been the last FA Women's Premier League club standing. The Gunners led at the break through a Kim Little penalty and in the second half, they added further goals from Heather O'Reilly, Vivianne Miedema, Danielle Carter and Jordan Nobbs.
Revised semi final draw (15th April):
Everton v Arsenal
Chelsea v Manchester City
