Blackburn Rovers are through to the quarter finals once again after beating former winners Sunderland 3-1.
Two late goals from Natasha Flint sealed the win for Rovers, adding to Saffron Jordan's earlier strike, with Emily Hutchinson replying for Sunderland.
Cardiff City Ladies' hopes of reaching the Final once again were brought to an end after they were beaten 4-3 after extra time by form team Loughborough Foxes. However, Cardiff had raced into a three-goal lead during the first half thanks to Grace Horrell, Kylie Nolan and Cori Williams, but after the break, Becky Matlock and Shauna Chambers brought the Foxes back into the game before Laura Dexter sent the game into extra time when she equalised two minutes from time. Rebecca Knight completed the comeback when she put Loughborough ahead for the first time and they held on to book their quarter final place.
Huddersfield Town powered into the last eight by running out 4-1 winners over Nottingham Forest. Lucy Sowerby gave Town a first half lead which was cancelled out on the stroke of half time by Katie Middleton. Brittany Sanderson put Huddersfield back in front early in the second half and Kate Mallin extended their lead on the hour, before Sowerby wrapped up the win with her second goal in injury time.
Stoke City got the better of Leeds Utd in a high scoring affair, beating their Division One North opponents 6-3. Katie Thompson gave Leeds a fifth minute lead, with Cassie Hyde equalising shortly afterwards, and Natasha Tezgel put Stoke in front for the first time in first half injury time. Faye McCoy and Hannah Keryakoplis extended that lead after the break and although Bethanie Davies bagged a brace to give Leeds renewed hope, Ashleigh Hayes and Amy Hughes added further goals to round off a good win for Stoke.
AFC Wimbledon are the only team from outside the top two divisions to reach the quarter finals so far after they defeated Cambridge Utd 2-1. Two goals in a three minute spell during the first half from Jenny Nagle and Caroline Bisson proved to be enough to take Wimbledon through, despite Emma Jenkins replying for Cambridge during the second half.
