Arsenal overcome brave Sunderland
 Women's Football News 28 Mar 2011
Arsenal were given a huge scare by Sunderland before making it through to the semi finals of the F.A.Women's Cup with a 3-2 extra time victory over the Premier League Champions elect.
In front of a large crowd at the Hetton Centre, Sunderland took a first half lead when Rachel Furness headed home from a Demi Stokes corner, rekindling memories of their league victory over the Gunners last season.
Sunderland took their advantage into half time but Arsenal were level within two minutes of the restart, Ellen White scoring with a header from a Rachel Yankey cross. Stokes went close following a good move and Kim Little struck the bar at the other end, before Arsenal went in front for the first time when Julie Fleeting stooped to head in an Ellen White cross. However the lead lasted just two minutes as Furness won a header from another Stokes corner and Steph Bannon volleyed in the equaliser.
Arsenal restored their lead early in extra time as Ellen White drilled a low shot past Rachael Laws. Both sides had further chances in a thrilling match but Arsenal held out to book their place in the last four.
Liverpool triumphed 3-0 over Doncaster Rovers Belles in the only all-FA WSL quarter final tie. The Reds took the lead in the opening minutes, Kelly Jones converting a cross from Nicky Harding.
The second goal came early in the second half, this time Cheryl Foster curled a 20-yard free kick past Helen Alderson and in off the woodwork. The Belles tried to hit back and there were chances for Becky Hall, Vicky Exley and Precious Hamilton but Liverpool rounded off the victory in the dying minutes when Michelle Evans and Foster set up Lynda Shepherd to fire home the third goal.
Barnet rounded off a great few days for their club by defeating a gallant West Ham Utd 3-2 after extra time to reach the semi finals for the second year in succession. The Premier League Cup winners took a 13th minute lead through Stacey Sowden but the Hammers were level six minutes into the second half, Gemma Shepherd beating Cherie Rowlands with a dipping shot.
West Ham then looked to be on their way to victory when Joanne Woodgates scored from a free kick ten minutes from time but Barnet once again showed their resilience as they won a penalty as goalkeeper Toni-Anne Wayne brought down Sowden. Wayne was shown a red card and Kelly Cooper took over in goal but Jess Trimnell kept her cool from the spot to send the match into extra time.
With eight minutes left, Barnet scored a decisive third goal as Abbie Prosser sent in a cross for Zoe Lance to find the net from close range. Barnet closed the game out to keep their good run going after 240 minutes of gruelling football in less than 72 hours.
Bristol Academy complete the semi final line up after coming from behind to beat Millwall Lionesses
2-1. Kate Longhurst gave the Lionesses an early lead but Academy hit back to claim victory through goals from Helen Bleazard and Jessica Fishlock (see match report).
