Dudley Utd's superb F.A.Women's Cup run continued with a 2-1 victory over TNS Ladies, which takes the West Midlands League Division One South team into the Second Round.
Next up for Dudley will be a trip to play Cambridge Women, who ended the hopes of Sawbridgeworth Town by beating them 5-0. Sophie Thompson bagged a hat-trick with the other goals from Hannah Goodchild and Kayleigh Oliver.
Littlehampton Town matched Dudley's feat of knocking out a Combination side as they defeated Ebbsfleet Utd 2-1 with Debra Lineham netting both goals. Littlehampton's reward is a trip to play Woodbridge Town, who had received a bye, in the tie which guarantees that at least one Regional League side in the Third Round draw.
Liverpool Feds are one of the form teams at Combination level and they kept up their recent good run with a 4-0 win against Peterlee Town. The Feds have now been drawn away to the winners of the postponed tie between Tranmere Rovers and Rotherham Utd.
Chloe Spencer, Nicola Doig and Nicola Connor scored the goals as Stockport County won an all-Combination tie, 3-1 against Bradford City. Stockport now face another Northern Combination side in the shape of Wakefield, who picked up a fine 2-1 success away to South Durham Royals thanks to Jodie Wray and Shauna Hill.
Sheffield Utd Community went down to their first defeat of the season in any competition, beaten 2-1 at home by Middlesbrough. Katie Kinlan and Becky Stephenson netted for 'Boro with Cheryl Mawhood replying. 'Boro, who reached the Fourth Round last season, have been handed a tough draw this time around as they must travel to play Salford Ladies, who progressed thanks to a bye.
One of the ties of the round was the Black Country derby between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sporting Club Albion and it was Albion who emerged as 3-1 victors. After the first half ended goalless, Jess Lippiatt put Albion ahead and Hayley Phillipowsky doubled their lead. Dani Selmes gave Wolves renewed hope by pulling a goal back but barely a minute later, Phillipowsky wrapped up the game for Albion from the penalty spot. Albion will be at home in the Second Round, to Loughborough Foxes who won 3-2 away to Leicester City. Mel Reid scored twice for the Foxes, with Daisy Just netting the winner.
Arguably the best game of the round so far was at Stoke City where the home side narrowly saw off the challenge of Loughborough Students with a 5-4 victory, Kate Asher scoring a hat-trick with Emma Sanders adding the other two. Stoke must now travel to Copsewood (Coventry), 7-1 winners over Scunthorpe Utd. Nicola Foskett was on target five times for Copsewood, with Amanda Whalley adding the other two.
Midland Combination leaders Coventry City came through an awkward tie away to Long Eaton Utd with a 2-0 win. Hazannah Parnell marked her debut by giving the Sky Blues an early lead but, against plucky opponents whose goalkeeper Cairo Hopewell had a superb match, it wasn't until four minutes from time that substitute Emily Hanson made the game safe. Coventry now play host to Leafield Athletic who recorded the biggest win of the day in the First Round, scoring eight without reply against Leamington Lions.
Aishah Bolaji bagged a hat-trick as Haringey Borough defeated Barking 3-1 to make their progression and they must make the trip to Lewes, who were 5-2 winners against Ipswich Town. Emma Millington and Charlotte Bennett each netted twice for the Sussex side, with Claire Trafford also on target.
Enfield Town enjoyed a good Cup run last season and they will be hoping for a repeat this time around after they beat Maidstone Town 3-1. They face a tough task in the Second Round with a home tie against Gillingham, for whom Danielle Farmer (2), Natalie Crinean (2), Vicky Ashton-Jones and Ashlee Hincks all found the net in their 6-0 victory over Oxford City.
Nikki Robson grabbed the solitary goal of the game as Northampton Town won 1-0 away to Tottenham Hotspur, a result which earns the Cobblers a trip to Milton Keynes Dons who defeated Old Actonians
3-0. Player manager Vicky Gallagher netted twice for the Dons, with Aileen Whelan also on the scoresheet.
Amy Fisher bagged a double and Tash Sandalls added the other as Chesham Utd kept up their good form with a 3-0 success away to Bedford Ladies and there is a long trip for the Buckinghamshire side in the Second Round, to Norwich City who went through courtesy of a bye.
Havant & Waterlooville made sure that their trip to the Isle of Wight was a happy one, returning home with a 2-0 victory under their belts. Chloe Ranger was the difference between the sides on the day as she netted both goals, one in each half. The Hawks must wait and see who their Second Round opponents will be, as they have been drawn away to either Plymouth Argyle or Swindon Supermarine.
Newquay made a smooth progression with a convincing 7-1 win away to Reading Town. Vicky Barter was on target four times for the Cornish side along with Hayley Stroud, Lucy Olde and Rose Knuckey. Newquay will be at home in the Second Round to Swindon Town who edged out Winscombe 3-2.
The South West was badly hit by weather over the weekend and the other two ties in the area were also postponed. Saltash Utd and Yeovil Town will try to play again this Sunday and the winners will be at home to another delayed match between Cullompton Rangers and Forest Green Rovers.
The one remaining Third Round Qualifying match was played on Sunday and it signalled the end for one of the two County League clubs left in the competition.
Harraby Catholic Club went down to a 12-1 defeat at home to Hull City and the North East League team will play host to Rochdale in the First Round this week.
