Second time lucky for Dale
 Women's Football News 11 Dec 2009
It was a case of second time lucky for Rochdale as they progressed into the Third Round of the F.A.Women's Cup with a hard fought 3-2 victory away to Whitley Bay.
The teams had met seven days earlier but torrential rain forced the match to be abandoned at half time with Rochdale leading 1-0.
On a heavy pitch, Whitley started the brighter of the two sides but it was Dale who went ahead midway through the first half via a great strike from Rachael Wood. Whitley were back on level terms just after the half hour when Kate St Louis slid the ball home from a through ball by Mel Carr.
Rochdale stepped up the pace after the interval and went back in front ten minutes after the restart. Sarah Buffel released Susie Wells on the right, where her pinpointed cross picked out Lizzie Paul to bravely head home. However just two minutes later, Whitley hit back once again as Carr sprang the Rochdale offside trap and coolly steered home the equaliser.
The match was settled fifteen minutes from time when Dale were awarded a penalty following a challenge on Paul in the area. Susie Wells stepped up to the tuck home the resulting spot kick. Whitley refused to lie down but this time there was no coming back for the North East League side and Rochdale held on to take their place in the next round.
Rochdale will have to wait at least a few more days to find out who their opponents will be as the tie between Rotherham Utd and Liverpool Feds was postponed for the second week in a row and they will attempt to play once more this Sunday.
Whitley Bay's defeat means that only one Regional League club is left in this season's competition and that is Littlehampton Town. The London & South East League side booked their place in the Third Round with a 1-0 victory away to Woodbridge Town.
Littlehampton will have a plum tie this Sunday away to Premier League outfit Colchester Utd. 18-year-old Samantha-Jade Mee scored the only goal of the game to earn Littlehampton the biggest match in the club's history.
Only one other Second Round tie was completed on Sunday and it saw Newquay make it through by beating Swindon Town 2-0. In difficult conditions, Becky Atkins scored with a tremendous volley from the edge of the area to put the Cornish side ahead and Vicky Barter sealed the victory with the second goal. Newquay will be away to either Yeovil Town or Forest Green Rovers.
Five Second Round ties are still to be completed, as well as the aforementioned, Salford Ladies must take on Middlesbrough whilst Norwich City play Chesham Utd and Plymouth Argyle's match with Havant & Waterlooville.
