Peterborough Utd were one of four Regional League teams to knock out National League opponents in the Second Round Qualifying when they won 2-1 away to Stevenage Women.
Donna McGuigan and Megan Parrett scored the goals as the Posh Women claimed a big victory for themselves and their reward is a home tie against The New Saints, for home Katie Doster hit a hat-trick in their 6-1 victory over Long Eaton Utd. Lucy Brown, Laura Pennington and Charlotte Turner added the others for TNS, with Long Eaton's consolation coming from Kelly Kennaugh.
Bowers & Pitsea caused a surprise as they won 2-1 away to Maidenhead Utd, courtesy of Sophie Dowman and an own goal. They will be at home in the next round to Luton Town, guaranteeing that at least one Eastern Region League side will be in the First Round proper. Zara Carroll hit a hat-trick and Funmi Babalola added the other goal as Luton ran out 4-0 winners away to Newmarket Town.
Moneyfields also claimed a higher level scalp with a penalty shootout victory over Larkhall Athletic, after the teams had shared a 2-2 draw. All four goals were scored in extra time, Krystal Whyte and Kim Whitcombe on target for the Moneys and the Larks responding through Kate German and Maddie Brown before Moneyfields triumphed from the spot (see match report). The Moneys now travel to play Portishead Town who are the last remaining South West League side left in the competition after they won a well contested tie 1-0 against Wootton Bassett Town. The Wiltshire side had much of the play but a well drilled Portishead back four defended very well and Shannon Holloway rifled home the only goal of the game early in the second half.
The third Division One South West team to fall were Swindon Town, who were beaten 3-2 by AFC Bournemouth CST. Erin Thickett (2) and Rosie Eden took the Cherries through and they can look forward to the prospect of a South Coast derby tie with Southampton Women who gained revenge for defeat to Marine Academy Plymouth at this stage a year ago by winning their return meeting 2-0 thanks to Aine McKeever and Jane Yeates.
Leeds Utd put an end to South Shields' hopes with a 4-1 victory. Abbie Brown netted twice along with Rebecca Hunt and Shannon Durkin for Leeds who now face a Yorkshire derby against Barnsley, who defeated Bradford City 5-1 with goals from Amy Woodruff (2), Kathryn Smith, Melissa Woodhouse and Sophie Bell.
Nichole Havery scored a hat-trick and Kacie Elson added the other goal as Chester-le-Street Town won 4-2 against Doncaster Rovers Belles, for whom Emily Burgin and Chloe Bethell were on target. The Cestrians have landed a north east derby tie in the next round with Newcastle Utd, who were 2-1 winners at Bolton Wanderers thanks to Rhiannon Gray and Jayden Maxwell.
Hartlepool Utd pipped Blackburn Community by the odd goal in seven. Justine Robinson netted twice, with one apiece from Caitlin Bates and Jenni Duffy-Smith, to take 'Pools through and they have been rewarded with a home tie against National League Chorley who were 2-0 winners away to Harrogate Town, Sophie Rotheram scoring both goals during the first half.
Durham Cestria ended the cup run of Ossett Utd by beating them 5-1. Durham captain Jen Knowles had a great day in goal, scoring four times in all, and Chloe Ryan added the other goal. They will have to wait and see who their next opponents will be as the tie between Redcar Town and Norton & Stockton Ancients was postponed.
Lauren Walker was on target four times as Sporting Khalsa came away from Leafield Athletic with a 5-2 win under their belts. Chloe Handy added Khalsa's other goal, with Daisy-Mai Clements netting twice in reply. Khalsa will be up against opposition from the same division in the next round, at home to Lincoln City who scored seven times without reply past Solihull Moors. Abigail Murrell had a great day in front of goal, scoring five times in total, and she was joined on the scoresheet by Amy Blinkhorn and Amy Hunt.
Bedworth Utd came through a difficult tie away to Chesterfield with a 3-1 victory, thanks to a Kirsty Farnsworth brace and Amanda Whalley. Bedworth will be at home in the next round to either Woodlands Ladies or Rise Park.

Birmingham & West Midlands Ladies were also 6-0 winners away to Mansfield Town, courtesy of a Jessica Lundie hat-trick, Steph Weston double and Holly Rogers. They have been rewarded with a home tie against Crewe Alexandra, 5-0 victors at Coventry Sphinx with Amanda Fallon and Beth Grice bagging a brace each, and Jess Dawson rounding off the scoring.
Wolverhampton Wanderers notched ten goals against local rivals Shifnal Town, including a hat-trick from the prolific Jade Cross. Amy Dicken netted twice and there was one apiece from Philippa Wilson, Natalie Widdal, Jess Jennings, Lyndsey Glover and Alice Keitley. Wolves will make a short trip in the next round to more West Midlands League opposition in the form of Sutton Coldfield Town, who came from two behind to beat Solihull Ladies Utd 3-2 thanks to a Niamh Deasy hat-trick.
The top two teams in the Eastern Region League Premier Division clashed in a match which fully lived up to its billing, with Harlow Town edging out Wroxham 4-3 after extra time. Becky Shephard, Chloe Bassett, Frances Gamble and Kaydee King scored the goals for Harlow, with Grace Birchall (2) and Emily Leach replying. Harlow have been rewarded with a plum home tie against Billericay Town who were impressive eight-goal winners at Dartford. Karissa Rodney and Zoe Rushen each netted twice for the Essex side with Jay Blackie, Courtney Lumley, Ellie Nicholls and Hannah Smith adding the others.
AFC Basildon booked themselves a trip to either Cambridge City or St Albans Ladies with an 8-2 victory against Phoenix Sports. Kelly Wealthall led the scoring with a hat-trick, Cerys Adams added a couple and there was one apiece from Grace Gillard, Holly Turner and Sarah Wilson.
Carla Williams, Meila D'Santos and Late Uche were on the scoresheet as Actonians Ladies won 3-1 at Kent Football Utd, whose consolation came from Amy Russ. Actonians are now at home to Fulham who got the better of Saltdean Utd on a penalty shootout, after the teams had shared a 1-1 draw.

Chloe Sampson bagged a four-goal haul and Kasha Petit hit a hat-trick to spearhead the victory, whilst Anna Maria Dzyadyk and Amelia Cutler added the other goals. This sets up an intriguing tie in the next round with Leyton Orient, who made good work of a difficult trip to Abingdon Utd by running out 4-1 winners. Otesha Charles netted a goal in each half, with Egle Trezzi and Sophie Le Marchand also getting on target.
Enfield Town eased through with a 4-0 victory over Islington Borough, Katherine Long grabbing two goals, along with Claire Ford and Danielle Smith. Enfield will be at home again in the next round to AFC Wimbledon who scored seven times without reply at Ashford Ladies. Charlotte Flood (2), Elizabeth O'Callaghan, Hannah Billingham, Sophie Manzi, Georgia Heasman and Katie Stanley accounted for the Dons' goals.
Tara Woodward, Charlotte Bagshaw and Samantha Jackson were the markswomen for Wycombe Wanderers as they continued their Cup run with a 3-1 win against Woking Ladies. Wycombe face a tough assignment in the next round, being drawn away to Chesham Utd who defeated Abingdon Town 4-0 with goals from Gemma Fraser (2), Becky Bloor and Jacqui Hanson.
Poole Town came through a tricky tie away to Winchester City Flyers with a 3-2 victory, Faye Hawkins bagging a brace for the Dolphins and Danielle Maidment also got on the scoresheet. Poole will be away in the next round to either Southampton FC Women or Buckland Athletic.
A late flurry of goals helped Cheltenham Town to a 5-0 win against Brislington. Charlotte Criddle scored the only goal of the first half but after the break, Georgia Brown, Mai Butler, Annie Martin and Kerry Bartlett were also on target to help Cheltenham through to a tie in the next round against Exeter City, who were 7-1 victors over Sherborne Town. Abbie Britton and Sophie Gillies netted two goals apiece along with Megan Robinson, Manfy Sharpe and Emily Toogood.
Torrential rain and a waterlogged pitch meant that the tie between Farsley Celtic and Liverpool Feds was forced to be abandoned at half time, with the Feds leading 1-0. The teams will try again this week and the winners will be away to either Northwich Vixens or Altrincham, whose tie was postponed.
The last remaining First Round Qualifying tie was completed and it is FC United of Manchester who progress with a 4-1 victory away to fellow North West League side Morecambe. Kirsty Chambers netted two of the goals and she was joined on the scoresheet by Robyn Hartley and Kate O'Gara.
