Holders Arsenal are one of three teams to have gone through to the Fifth Round of the F.A.Women's Cup but needed extra time before running out 4-1 winners over Sunderland.
In a repeat of last season's Final, the Gunners enjoyed the greater share of the game but were frustrated by a string of fine saves from Sunderland goalkeeper Rachael Laws to keep her side in the game and Rachel Yankey also struck the bar. Midway through the second half, Arsenal broke the deadlock as Katie Chapman followed up to score after Helen Lander's initial shot came back off the bar. This looked to be enough to send them through until injury time, when a Jordan Nobbs shot deflected off Ciara Grant and into her own net to take the match into the extra period.
Arsenal pushed hard during the first period of extra time and were rewarded when Kim Little netted twice within a minute. After the break, Little went on to complete her hat-trick with a well taken finish to take her season tally of goals to 30 in all competitions and book her side a tie with either Leeds Carnegie or Watford.
OOH Lincoln have a good record in the Cup in recent seasons and they are once again into the last sixteen after coming from behind to win 3-1 against Sheffield Wednesday.
Rachel Skeemer broke through to give Wednesday a first half lead which they preserved at the interval as a goalline clearance denied Stacey Aisthorpe an equaliser.
Lincoln got back on level terms just before the hour mark as Jodie Michalska rounded Danni Maslin before slotting home from an actue angle and full back Leandra Little put them ahead for the first time with a 25-yard strike. Little then sealed the win by nodding in her second from Carla Ward's lofted pass.
Lincoln will now be away to the winners of the tie between WFC Fulham and Blackburn Rovers.
