Eastern League Bowers & Pitsea went through 2-1 at Maidenhead United, a deflected Sophie Dowman effort proving decisive.

East Midlands League Peterborough United progressed 2-1 at Stevenage, Megan Parrett with the decider on 78 minutes.

Hartlepool United twice came from behind in edging Blackburn CSC in a seven-goal thriller, Jussy Robinson netting twice.

Fulham fought back after conceding an early own-goal to force extra-time and then penalties against Saltdean United, eventually winning 3-0 on spot-kicks.

Harlow Town reached the next round with a similar score but only after extra-time against Wroxham, despite having beaten the same opponents 4-1 away in the league last month.

Kent Football United’s chances of battling back against Actonians were made harder by a red card on the hour mark, as the visitors went on to win 3-1.

Durham Cestria captain Jen Knowles got four of her side’s five goals against Ossett United from right back.

There was a four goal haul too for Chloe Sampson in QPR’s 9-1 scoreline at home to Oakwood but Wolves top-scored with ten against Shifnal Town which featured a first-half hat-trick by Jade Cross.

The tie between Farsley Celtic and Liverpool Feds was abandoned at half-time following a first-half deluge that left the pitch waterlogged. Feds were 1-0 up at the time.
