Eastern Suburbs are the only survivors of last season’s Kate Sheppard Cup semi-finalists to make it through to the quarter-finals of this season’s competition after surprise results over the weekend.

Holders Wellington United were knocked out of the Kate Sheppard Cup, losing in a penalty shoot-out to Palmerston North Marist.

Hamilton Wanderers, runners-up last time, were eliminated in the second round this year while in another third-round shock, Coastal Spirit have been knocked out by Cashmere Technical.

Here’s our round-up of cup results:

Wellington’s Diamonds are out of the cup

Holders Wellington United were surprise exits from the cup when they lost to Palmerston North Marist on the artificial turf at Arena Manawatu.

Rebekah Trewhiti had given the home side a 1-0 half-time lead before United levelled on the hour through Elizabeth Crowe.

In the 70th minute, Marist regained the lead through Torijan Lyne-Lewis but a minute later, the sides were level again when Olive Lynch-Gerrard scored for the visitors.

The game ended up going to penalties and Marist won the shoot-out 6-5 to go into the last eight of the competition.

Coastal Spirit rocked by late Lowe goal

A penalty by Football Fern Kate Loye three minutes from time gave Cashmere Technical a surprise 1-0 win against Coastal Spirit, a semi-finalist in the last edition of the Kate Sheppard Cup.

Women’s football specialist writer Jeremy Ruane says it’s only the second time since 2010 that Spirit have failed to reach the last eight of the country’s premier knockout competition for women.
