One of the three scheduled ties managed to beat the weather and it saw Chesham Utd edge past Billericay Town with a 1-0 victory. Gemma Fraser scored the only goal of the game for the Clarets, five minutes before half time (see match report).
The much delayed Second Round tie between Cheltenham Town and Chichester City was finally played on Sunday, and it was Chichester who progressed to the quarter finals with a 4-0 victory. Captain Megan Fox was on target twice for the Sussex side and she was joined on the scoresheet by Sophie Phelps and Gemma Simmonds.
Northern Premier Division
The only match in the division to beat the weather over the weekend took place at Loughborough Foxes, and it was the home side who were to pick up three valuable points from a 6-1 victory over Middlesbrough. Anna Renken led the scoring with a hat-trick, whilst other goals came from Charlotte Cooper, Shauna Chambers and Rebecca Knight as the Foxes extended the gap between themselves and the bottom two to six points, with 'Boro's consolation being scored by Katie Wilson.
Southern Premier Division
Plymouth Argyle's title challenge was dealt a blow as they were beaten for the second successive week, this time going down 2-1 to Oxford Utd. Plymouth did take a first half lead through Natasha Knapman but the U's hit back on the stroke of half time when Georgia Timms levelled the scores and Kayleigh Hines scored the winner from a free kick, two minutes from time. The result lifts Oxford up to fourth place, their highest to date, three points behind Argyle who are immediately above them.
Division One North
It was a similar story in this division where only one match was played, Leeds Utd enhancing their title hopes with a 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers. The first half was goalless but Leeds went ahead six minutes after the break through an own goal and Holly Findlay made the points safe with three minutes remaining. Leeds therefore picked up their fourth victory in a row and narrow the gap on leaders Barnsley to three points.
Division One South East
AFC Wimbledon suffered their first league defeat of the season as they went down 1-0 to Actonians Ladies, who kept up their recent improving form. A victory would have Wimbledon to within a single point of leaders Ipswich Town but Jessica Byrne scored the only goal of the game, early in the second half, handed Actonians their sixth win in seven matches in all competitions.
It was not a good day either for Wimbledon's fellow title hopefuls Leyton Orient either as they were beaten 3-0 by Cambridge Utd. The U's had gone six league matches without a win but a Kelley Blanchflower double and Emma Jenkins gave them their best result of the season so far, and takes them out of the bottom two places.
No matches were played in Division One Midlands and Division One South West on Sunday.
