Sunderland and Barnet went through to the quarter finals of the F.A.Women's Cup with victories over FA WSL opponents.
Sunderland, beaten finalists two years ago, rekindled memories of that run by beating Lincoln Ladies
1-0. Carla Cantrell twice hit the post for Lincoln and it was Sophie Williams who settled matters in favour of the Wearsiders with the only goal of the game, twenty minutes from time.
Barnet meanwhile came from a goal behind to win 2-1 at Birmingham City to keep up their fantastic record in Cup ties this season. The Blues looked to be on their way to victory as Emily Westwood gave them the lead midway through the first half but goals in a four-minute spell after the break from Davina Smith and Stacey Sowden turned the tie around for Tracey Kevins' side.
The tie of the round went the way of Arsenal who defeated Everton 2-0 to gain revenge for their defeat in last year's Final. The first half ended goalless but the deadlock was broken just before the hour mark when Rachel Yankey latched on to a bad back pass to give the Gunners the lead. Katie Chapman then sealed victory as she lobbed home the second goal with fifteen minutes remaining.
The other all-FA WSL tie saw Doncaster Rovers Belles book their place in the last eight with a fine
1-0 win away to Chelsea, Vicky Exley scoring the only goal of the game in the first half (see match report).
West Ham Utd are the only team remaining in the competition from outside the top two tiers after their 1-0 victory at Enfield Town, and the Premier League side were pushed all the way by their South East Combination opponents. Indeed it wasn't until the 88th minute that the tie was settled, Jo Woodgates scoring the only goal of the game for the Hammers.
Liverpool ended the Cup run of Charlton Athletic by running out 5-0 winners against the Addicks. Ruesha Littlejohn led the scoring with a hat-trick and also on target for the Reds were Katie Brusell and Suzanne Lappin.
Bristol Academy are the fourth WSL side left in the competition following their 8-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday at the Don Valley Stadium. Ann Marie Heatherson, Jessica Fishlock and Helen Bleazard all netted twice as they proved to be too strong for the Northern Combination side, with the other goals coming from Loren Dykes and Molly Clark.
Millwall Lionesses conjured up one of their best results of the season to beat Watford 5-0. Emma Beckett put them in front from the penalty spot and went on to complete her double and she was joined on the scoresheet by Danielle Puddefoot, who also netted twice, and Kate Longhurst.
