Arsenal stormed into the semi finals of the F.A.Women's Cup and gave new manager Laura Harvey a winning start by beating Doncaster Rovers Belles 5-0.
Rachel Yankey capped a great personal week by giving them a sixth minute lead and Kim Little put Arsenal in control as she netted either side of half time. Little went on to complete her fifth hat-trick of the season before a late own goal completed the scoring.
Everton put their Premier League Cup Final disappointment behind them to beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 and move to within one stage of their first Cup Final appearance since 2005.
However the Toffees needed to bounce back after Danielle Sheen put Blackburn ahead after nine minutes, with Toni Duggan equalising just after the half hour mark and Jody Handley netting what proved to be the winner, early in the second half.
Chelsea won their delayed Fifth Round tie against Millwall Lionesses but only after being taken to extra time for the second successive week before emerging as 3-1 winners.
Drew Spence gave Chelsea a first half lead which was cancelled out before the break by Ann Marie Heatherson, and neither side could settle matters before the end of normal time.
It wasn't until ten minutes from the end that Chelsea went back in front through Dunia Susi and they made the game safe shortly afterwards with a goal from Emma Whitter.
Chelsea will be away to Aston Villa in the quarter finals after Martin Harrison's side were narrow 2-1 winners in their all-Northern Division tie with Curzon Ashton.
Kimberly Farrow gave Villa an early lead which was levelled by an equaliser from Nicky McLeod, but a second half goal from Dani Petrovic proved decisive to take Villa into the last eight.
The last remaining Combination side went out of the competition as Yeovil Town were beaten 1-0 at home by Nottingham Forest. Andi Bell's 63rd minute strike settled a well contested match and books Forest a trip to Barnet in the Sixth Round (see match report).
