Fulham blow away Liverpool

Extreme scorelines matched the day's weather as Charlton Athletic and Fulham both ran up double-figure victories in round two of the Women's Premier League Cup.

The Addicks beat St Helens-based Garswood Saints 10-1.

England striker Amanda Barr, on as substitute after being held up in M25 traffic jams, hit a late hat-trick.

Barr's international colleague Rachel McArthur scored five for holders Fulham in a 12-0 win against Liverpool, the victory also including four goals by Norwegian midfielder Margunn Haugenes.

The second round's biggest tie, in which Arsenal were scheduled to entertain Leeds United, was one of two fixtures postponed because of the conditions.

Charlton Athletic 10-1 Garswood Saints

Charlton strolled to victory despite having three of their starting line-up delayed due to problems created by the dreadful weather in South London.

Justine Lorton and Carmaine Walker each hit two goals before substitute Barr took the Addicks into double figures with a hat-trick in the last 23 minutes.

Fulham 12-0 Liverpool

Fulham made light of the conditions with their biggest win of the season.

Striker Kristy Moore scored twice and substitute Sarah Lipscombe was also on target to add to the five goals by McArthur and four from Haugenes.

Brighton 1-4 Birmingham City

Jo Potter scored twice as last season's beaten finalists swept into the quarter-finals.

Boosted by their surprise midweek League victory over Arsenal, Birmingham took an early lead through Jody McGuckin.

Sarah Stainer quickly equalised, but Sally Lacey put Blues back in front midway through the first half then Potter struck twice to put the game beyond the Seagulls.

Doncaster Belles 2-1 Manchester City

The Belles made hard work of beating their Northern Division opponents in a heavily gusting Doncaster wind.

England midfielder Vicky Exley headed them in front and Lucy Ward doubled their advantage, but City refused to buckle and pulled a goal back in the last minute through Becky Stokes.

Sunderland 2-3 Aston Villa

Substitute Hannah Smith scored with her first and second touches to help Villa recover from a two-goal deficit to clinch a quarter-final place.

Karen Scorer and Jen O'Neill hit first half goals for the Northern Division leaders, but after Smith's double strike had levelled the scores Natalie Courtney grabbed Villa's winner 10 minutes from time.

Bristol Rovers v Oldham Curzon

Trudy Williams scored her 19th goal of the season as the runaway Southern Division leaders eased themselves past Northern Division opponents.

An eighth minute own goal put Rovers on the road to victory, which was wrapped up by Williams on the hour.
