Morecambe claimed the scalp of Sheffield FC and booked their place in the last sixteen of the FAWNL League Plate after beating them 4-3 after extra time.
Yasmine Swarbrick gave Morecambe a first half lead which was cancelled out on the stroke of half time by Jade Butcher. Ellie White put Sheffield ahead seven minutes into the second half, Swarbrick levelling again, and after Megan Tinsley had restored Sheffield's lead four minutes later, Natalie Broad equalised once again to take the match into the extra period. With eight minutes left to play, Swarbrick completed her hat-trick and gave Morecambe victory over their Northern Premier Division opponents.
Ipswich Town meanwhile eliminated C & K Basildon with a 4-2 victory. Toni-Anne Wayne, now playing as a striker, netted two of the goals and she was joined on the scoresheet by Zoe Cossey and Natasha Thomas.
Doncaster Rovers Belles and Barnsley produced an entertaining tie which also went to extra time before Barnsley emerged as 3-2 winners. The Belles looked to be on their way to victory through a brace from Izzy Whittle but Barnsley, who had earlier scored through Amy Woodruff, took the game into the extra period when Sophie Bell equalised in injury time. The game remained in the balance until seven minutes from the end, Mollie Crump grabbing the winning goal for Barnsley.
Gillingham saw off a spirited second half effort from Luton Town, eventually going through with a 5-4 victory. Sharna Giordani, Breon Grant, Alice Bussey, Emma Sherwood and Ellie Manning all scored for the Gills, who led by four goals at one stage, whilst Luton's replies came from a Jess McKay double, Rachel Carter and Aurora Ryan whilst Olivia Abrahams almost forced extra time when she struck the woodwork late on.
Chester-le-Street Town made sure that the long trip to Long Eaton Utd turned out to be a successful one, but went all the way to extra time in their 1-0 victory. A tightly contested tie was settled five minutes into the extra period when Nichole Havery netted the only goal of the game.
West Bromwich Albion meanwhile swept through by beating Nettleham 5-0. Keeley Davies was on target twice for Albion along with Abby Bevan, Nicole Dale and Natalie Murray.
Liverpool Feds booked their place in the last sixteen with a 2-0 win against Crewe Alexandra. Both goals came during the last eighteen minutes, Jennifer Rogers breaking the deadlock for the Feds and Demi Devereaux adding the second goal shortly afterwards.
There were plenty of goals on offer at Steel City Wanderers where visitors Sporting Khalsa progressed with a 6-4 victory. Chloe Handy, Stephanie Kydd, Paige Kavanagh, Laura Quigley, Beth Woolley and Lauren Walker all scored a goal apiece for Khalsa whilst Lucy Ridley hit a hat-trick for the Steels but ended up on the losing side, Libby Hallam adding their other goal.
Bedworth Utd emerged as 2-1 winners from a closely contested tie away to Swindon Town. Kirsty Farnsworth and Shanice Walsh were on target for Bedworth, with the home side replying through Milly Colford.
There was another late winning goal, this time in favour of Chesham Utd as they won 2-1 at Actonians Ladies. Emma Delves put the Clarets in front in the seventeenth minute with Carla Williams equalising at the midpoint of the second half. The game looked to be heading towards extra time until Gemma Fraser netted the winner for Chesham in the third minute of injury time.
One tie did go all the way to penalties, at Maidenhead Utd where the home side knocked out Denham Utd after the sides had battled out a 1-1 draw. Aine McKeever had given Maidenhead the lead, with Rachel Keightley grabbing a late leveller for Denham, and after extra time could not provide a winner it was Maidenhead who won 4-2 from the spot.
The last remaining First Round tie was played on Sunday and it saw Keynsham Town make a smooth progression by beating Southampton Saints 7-1. Kerry Bartlett hit a first half hat-trick, with Alisha Buckingham replying, and Bartlett went on to add a fourth after the break with Justine Lorton, Michelle Munro and Ellie Curson all joining her on the scoresheet. Keynsham will now be at home to Portsmouth and the tie will be played this coming Sunday.
