The remaining Second Round ties were played on Sunday but without the same impact of results from seven days earlier, as all of the clubs facing lower division opposition made it through to the next stage.
The North East derby tie certainly lived up to its billing as Sunderland edged past Middlesbrough with a 4-3 victory. Bridget Galloway netted twice for the Wearsiders, who were also boosted by two own goals, whilst 'Boro replied with a goal apiece from Ellie Dobson, Tyler Dobbs and Emily Scarr. Sunderland will be away to Fylde Women in the Third Round.
One of the ties of the round turned out be a very close one, with only penalties managing to separate Stoke City and Huddersfield Town. Laura Elford gave Town a seventeenth minute lead, which they held until seven minutes from time when Meg Bowyer equalised for Stoke. Extra time could not provide a winner and it was Huddersfield who triumphed 4-3 from the resulting shootout.
Huddersfield will be away again in the next round, to Loughborough Foxes who made sure that the long trip to the north east was a fruitful one, running out 4-0 winners over Chester-le-Street Town. A double from Anna Renken gave Loughborough a two-goal lead at half time and after Grace Stanley put them further ahead early in the second half, Renken rounded off the scoring late on when she completed her hat-trick.
Burnley FC Women were pushed all the way by Hull City but a Sarah Greenhalgh brace, including the winner three minutes from time, saw the Clarets through with a 2-1 victory. Burnley now face a tough tie in the next round at home to fellow Northern Premier Division high fliers Nottingham Forest.
West Bromwich Albion meanwhile got past Lincoln City with a 2-0 win, which was given to them by Keeley Davies and Harriet James. Albion face another tricky tie in the next round away to Southampton Women.
The all-Division One North tie went all the way to extra time, where Brighouse Town were 2-1 winners away to Chorley. Hannah Freibach and Chloe Wild both scored for Brighouse, with Grace Vella replying, to set them up with a home tie against Barnsley - which guarantees a Division One team in the Fourth Round.
One tie in the south was still to be settled, Portsmouth easing into the Third Round by beating Leyton Orient 6-1. The O's did take a seventh minute lead through Allison McCann, which they held until the half hour mark when Becki Bath netted a quickfire double to turn the match on its head, before Tamsin De Bunsen and Laura Ingram added further goals ahead of the break. De Bunsen netted her second midway through the second half and Jazz Younger rounded off the scoring late on. Portsmouth now face a long trip to Suffolk in the next round, where they will face Ipswich Town.
