Three clubs playing in Tier 4 are still going strong in the SSE Women's FA Cup and all three went through to the last 32 with victories over opponents from the level above.
AFC Wimbledon progressed with an impressive 3-0 victory away to Hull City. The first half was goalless but Katie Stanley broke the deadlock in the Dons' favour just after the hour mark. Jordanne Hoesli-Atkins added a second shortly afterwards and Georgia Heasman completed the scoring in injury time, to set up a plum home tie with WSL side Bristol City.
Keynsham Town meanwhile won 2-1 against Fylde Ladies in a full blooded encounter at the AJN Stadium. Kerry Bartlett gave Keynsham a first half lead which was cancelled out just before the break by Sophie Charlton. Cristina Vega Leandro scored with ten minutes remaining to seal victory for Keynsham, who now go to Reading FC Women in the Fourth Round.
Crawley Wasps kept their run of wins going with another notable win, this time notching a 2-1 success away to Coventry Utd. After Amber Hughes had given Coventry a first half lead, Ariana Flieschman equalised a minute later and, with the game set to go to extra time, Darcey James grabbed a winner for Crawley in injury time. The goal has proved to be a valuable one in more ways than one for the Division One South East table toppers, as the draw has rewarded them with a home tie against Arsenal.
Stoke City were another team to benefit from a late goal as they won 2-1 at Derby County. Natasha Tezgel's first half strike for Stoke was cancelled out by Nicole Ledgister but with a minute remaining, Hannah Keryakoplis settled matters in Stoke's favour and they have landed a home tie with Aston Villa.
A thrilling tie at Billericay Town saw Loughborough Foxes go home with a 4-3 victory under their belts. Becky McGrother netted twice for the Foxes along with Rebecca Knight and Eva Rogers, whilst Zoe Rushen (2) and Sam Pittuck replied for Billericay (see match report).
Huddersfield Town ended Leeds Utd's hopes with a 4-1 victory which books them a Fourth Round trip to Charlton Athletic. A brace from Brittany Sanderson put Town two ahead inside the opening seventeen minutes and although Katie Thompson pulled one back for Leeds on the half hour, Sarah Danby and Laura Elford wrapped up the win with goals in a three minute spell during the second half.
Watford made the long trip to the north east to play Middlesbrough but the journey home was a happy one after a stunning 7-2 victory. Helen Ward led the scoring for the Golden Girls with a four-goal haul and she was joined on the scoresheet by Danielle Scanlon, Katie O'Leary and Sam Hallsworth whilst Emily Scarr and Eleanor Dale replied for ‘Boro. Watford's reward is a very tough one as they are away to Manchester City.
Kim Farrow scored the only goal of the game as Milton Keynes Dons won 1-0 away to Nottingham Forest. MK are another National League side which will find themselves up against WSL opposition, as they have been drawn away to Liverpool.
Blackburn Rovers will be up against West Ham Utd after coming from behind to record a 2-1 victory at Oxford Utd. Evie Gane put Oxford ahead on the stroke of half time but after the break, two Natasha Flint goals, including a late winner, took Blackburn through.
Cardiff City Ladies are one step away from reaching the Fifth Round for a second successive season after they defeated Bolton Wanderers 2-0. Both Cardiff goals came early on, Cori Williams opening the scoring with three minutes on the clock and Kylie Nolan adding the second on the quarter hour. Cardiff face a long trip in the next round as they have been drawn away to Durham Women.
