Dudley Utd's F.A.Women's Cup run has come to an end but only after they were beaten 2-1 by Cambridge Women after extra time in their Second Round tie.
Sophie Thompson netted both goals to send the South East Combination side through at the expense of their West Midlands League opponents, where they will play Luton Town.
Stockport County edged out Wakefield 1-0 to earn themselves a Third Round trip to Sheffield Wednesday, thanks to a second minute goal from Nat Thomas.
Midland Combination leaders Coventry City eased through by scoring seven without reply against Leafield Athletic. Robyn James spearheaded the win for the Sky Blues by scoring a hat-trick, Jade Formaston weighed in with a double and there was a goal apiece from Natasha Lynch and Nikki Miles. Coventry must now play last season's Combination winners Derby County.
Sporting Club Albion won 4-1 against Loughborough Foxes to set themselves up with a local derby tie with Aston Villa. Hayley Phillipowsky, Laura McQuilkin, Amy Rippington and an own goal saw Albion through.
Emma Sanders scored twice, including a late winner to give Stoke City a 3-2 victory away to Copsewood (Coventry) (see match report). Stoke's reward is a home tie against Premier League opponents Leicester City.
Lewes ended the hopes of Haringey Borough by beating them 5-1. The Sussex side will now be at home to Queen's Park Rangers in the Third Round. Emma Millington, Kiera Chapman, Claire Trafford, Kirstie Spice and Helen Whitton all netted a goal apiece for the Rooks to put out their Eastern Region League opponents.
Natalie Crinean, Danielle Farmer and Ashlee Hincks were all on target as Gillingham won 3-0 away to Enfield Town. The Gills will now host Southern Division leaders Barnet in what is set to be one of the most fascinating ties in the round.
Milton Keynes Dons progressed to the Third Round with a 2-0 victory against Northampton Town. After the first half finished goalless, the Dons took the lead just after the hour mark through a header from Caroline Moran and Lauren Goodier wrapped up the win with the second goal. The Dons have landed a home tie against either Norwich City or Chesham Utd.
The only other tie to start was at Whitley Bay where visitors Rochdale took an early lead through a left foot shot from Lizzie Paul. However the weather worsened throughout the course of the first half and the match was abandoned at half time with Dale still 1-0 ahead. The teams will play again this week for the right to play the winners of one of the postponed ties, Rotherham Utd or Liverpool Feds.
In all, six of the Second Round ties were called off as well as the remaining First Round meeting between Cullompton Rangers and Forest Green Rovers, which has now been postponed four times.
