Women’s football round-up: Charlton, Crystal Palace and Chelsea win FA Cup ties

Charlton Athletic booked their place in the fifth round of the Women’s FA Cup after a 4-1 win over Ipswich Town on Sunday.

The Premier League South side – in the third tier – took the lead through Sophie Peskett.

But a first-half brace from Melissa Johnson and a penalty from Freya Godfrey put the Addicks 3-1 up before the break.
Elisha N’Dow added a fourth in the 73rd minute.

Crystal Palace beat Championship rivals Blackburn 3-1 in their tie.

Megan Hornby put the visitors ahead in the second half after she robbed Palace defender Hayley Nolan and slotted beyond keeper Demi Lambourne.

Blackburn had the chance to extend their lead in the 66th minute when Lambourne brought down Georgia Walters inside the area, but the stopper turned Hornby’s penalty over the crossbar.

Nolan atoned for her mistake by scoring in the 75th minute and Elise Hughes netted soon after. Molly Sharpe scored in the 87th minute.

FA Cup holders Chelsea knocked out West Ham United following a 3-1 extra-time win at Kingsmeadow.

Viviane Asseyi opened the scoring after 18 minutes for the Hammers. Mia Fishel equalised in the 70th minute to take the game to extra time, with Erin Cuthbert and Aggie Beaver-Jones scoring in the added 30 minutes to take Emma Hayes’ side into the next round.

“We haven’t played since December 20, I think looking rusty is normal,” Hayes said.

“We haven’t had a game and it looked like it. But once again the subs came and made a massive impact.”

AFC Wimbledon kept their five-point lead over Worthing in National League Division One South East following a 5-3 win over AFC Sudbury.

Ashlee Hincks claimed a hat-trick with Ashleigh Goddard and Ellie Dorey also on target.

Millwall Lionesses lost 5-1 at home to Ebbsfleet United in the  London and South East Regional Women’s League.

Shannon Drewe scored a late consolation.
