Blackburn Rovers came through a tough tie away to Guiseley Vixens to take their place in the Second Round of the National League Cup.
All of the goals came in the first half, Saffron Jordan scoring both goals to give last season's beaten finalists a 2-1 victory, Guiseley replying through Shannon Durkin.
Chorley kept up their fine form with a 2-1 extra time success at Newcastle Utd. Chloe Wild gave the Lancashire side an early lead which was cancelled out by Megan McKenzie, taking the game into the extra period where a 98th minute goal from Kerry Nickson proved to be just enough to take Chorley through.
Perhaps the game of the round though was at Enfield Town where Southampton Women returned home with a 4-3 victory under their belts. Nuala McKevitt put Enfield in front early on with the visitors hitting back through Kayleigh Tonks and Natalie Bavister before half time. Southampton increased their lead thanks to Jane Yeates, two minutes after the restart, but then Sara Degooye and Molly Peters both scored to bring Enfield back on level terms. With extra time looming, Roxanne Lee-Stewart put Southampton back in front with three minutes left, with what proved to be a decisive fourth goal.
AFC Wimbledon meanwhile enjoyed a much smoother route into the Second Round, running out 4-0 winners over Buckland Athletic. Bernice Tully and Laura Quinn-Low ensured that the Dons were two ahead at half time, before sealing the win with second half strikes from Jenny Nagle and Georgia Heasman.
Delayed FA Cup ties meant that only one of the First Round ties in the National League Plate was played on Sunday, Portsmouth powering through to the next round after scoring nine times without reply away to Poole Town. Carla Perkins and Rachel Panting each bagged hat-tricks for Pompey and they were joined on the scoresheet by Katie James, Eilidh Currie and Hannah Geer.
