Wembley calls on Kerr again as Chelsea advance

Sam Kerr is still on course to appear in a third successive FA Women’s Cup final after Chelsea won 3-1 at Reading in the quarter-finals.

Kerr spent the afternoon resting on the bench after Chelsea took a two-goal lead half an hour earlier.

The Australia captain has scored twice in each of the last two FA Cup finals as Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-0 and Manchester City 3-2.

Englishman Jess Carter and Norwegian duo Marin Mjeldy and Guru Ritten scored for Chelsea before Dan Saint Troelsgaard scored a consolation for the hosts.

Earlier, Lewes, a second-tier South Coast team that pays the same wages for the men’s and women’s teams, lost 3-1 at home to Manchester United.

Lewis has two Australian players in his squad, but Isobel Dalton and Libby Cobus-Brown started the game off the bench. Former Brisbane Roar midfielder Dalton came on just after the hour mark for United.

Brighton beat Birmingham from the Second Division 2-0 with the bottom four line-up finished later on Sunday when Aston Villa host Alana Kennedy, Hayley Raso and Manchester City’s Marie Fowler.

The draw for the semi-finals will take place on Tuesday.
