Spot-on Newcastle stun Watford

Spot-on Newcastle stun Watford - 28 Jan 2008 - Women's Football NewsNewcastle Utd pulled off the shock of the Fifth Round in the F.A.Women's Cup by knocking out National Division high fliers Watford in a penalty shootout.
A Marie Hourihan own goal gave Newcastle a fifteenth minute lead which was cancelled out as Elaine Sedgwick put through her own net on the half hour. Watford then surged into a 3-1 lead after the break with goals from Ashlee Hincks and Cori Daniels, but Sedgwick sparked a fightback by reducing the arrears and Julie Twaddle sent the match into extra time.
No further goals were scored during the extra period and it was Newcastle who emerged as 2-1 winners on penalties, to book their place in the quarter finals for the second time in three years.
Cardiff City also produced a notable win, beating Doncaster Rovers Belles 3-2 after extra time. Veronica Cantoro had given the Belles the lead, Nicola Cousins and Loren Dykes then put Cardiff in front before Liz Hansen scored a last minute equaliser for Donny. During the extra period, Dykes settled matters in Cardiff's favour with a powerful header.
Leeds Utd came through a penalty shootout for the second round in succession, this time against Chelsea as they continue to seek a second Final appearance in three seasons. There were no goals in normal time and, with eight minutes of extra time remaining, Chelsea took the lead through a goal from Lizzie Edwards. Amanda Barr quickly equalised for Leeds who triumphed 8-7 on penalties, Sue Smith slotting home the winning spot kick.
Arsenal enjoyed a more straight forward passage into the last eight, beating West Ham Utd 8-1. Lianne Sanderson (2), Gemma Davison, Kelly Smith, Mary Phillip, Rachel Yankey, Karen Carney and an own goal accounted for Arsenal's goals, whilst the Hammers' consolation came via a spectacular strike from Sam Pittuck.
Leicester City WFC put up a brave fight before eventually going down to a 3-0 defeat at home to Everton. The Midland Combination leaders held out until shortly before half time, when Jody Handley opened the scoring, and the Toffees made the game safe after the break as Jill Scott netted and Handley completed her double.
Last season's semi finalists Blackburn Rovers are one round away from that stage again, after coming from behind to beat Liverpool 4-1. After a goalless first half, Chantelle Parry gave the Reds the lead but Natalie Preston equalised on the hour mark and Blackburn went on to claim victory through further goals from Katie Anderton, Levi Penny and Karen Burke.
Birmingham City came through a very tricky tie to book their place in the quarter finals, winning 2-0 away to Southern Division leaders WFC Fulham. Heather Scheuber settled matters in Blues' favour by netting both of their goals.
Lincoln City are the other team from outside the top flight who are in the last eight, following their 5-1 victory over Portsmouth. Jodie Snelson scored a first half hat-trick for the Lady Imps and, although Brooke Chaplen pulled a goal back for Pompey, Megan Harris and Carla Ward went on to seal the victory for Lincoln.
