Sunderland produced a stunning fightback to beat Bristol Academy 4-2 after extra time and progress to the semi finals of the F.A.Women's Cup for the first time in their history.
Academy, who have reached the last four on five previous occasions, looked to be well on their way to victory as they went into a two-goal lead in the first half. Gwennan Harries put them in front when scoring directly from a corner and the Welsh international added her second via a well placed free kick.
It looked to be all over for Sunderland as Kelly McDougall missed a penalty on the hour mark but they were on level terms within seven minutes with goals from Demi Stokes and Sophie Williams.
The Northern Division side continued to have the better of things during extra time and Williams gave them the lead with eight minutes through a lob from the edge of the area. Sarah Danby had a goal disallowed for offside but Sunderland sewed up the win in the final minute, Lucy Bronze heading the rebound home after Danby's shot had been saved.
Also through to the semi finals for the first time are Chelsea, who again came from behind to win 3-1 against OOH Lincoln. Jodie Michalska gave the Lady Imps a fourth minute lead which they held until just before half time, when Eniola Aluko equalised.
Dunia Susi put the Blues in front early in the second half but she was sent off shortly afterwards. Despite going down to ten players, Chelsea went on to seal victory on the hour mark when Aluko scored her second goal.
Everton booked their place in the semi finals, thanks to a 2-0 victory away to Blackburn Rovers. Both of the goals came in the first half, Fara Williams opening the scoring from a free kick and in-form striker Natasha Dowie volleyed in the second just four minutes later.
