last updated Monday 11th February 2002, 8:52 AM
Fulham manager Gaute Haugenes was delighted to see his side progress to the semi-finals of the AXA Women’s FA Cup after their convincing 4-0 victory over Everton at Marine AFC this afternoon.

The London side took a slender 1-0 lead into the break when Norwegian international MargunnHaugenes converted from the spot after Marieanne Pettersen had been pulled back by Tina Mason in the penalty box.

But in the second half Fulham upped the tempo and Haugenes grabbed her second 10 minutes after the re-start.

Pettersen opened her account on 73 minutes after some neat play down the centre split the home defence to put her clean through and she rounded keeper Carly Timmins to slot home.

The Norway striker grabbed her second and Fulham’s fourth five minutes from time when she pounced after Timmins failed to hold onto the ball.

Manager Haugenes said: "I thought we played very well, both in defence and attack and with a little bit of luck we could have been two or three goals up in the first half.

"I’m really pleased to get through to the next stage and hopefully we’ll get a good draw for the semi-final."

No other quarter-finals have yet been played.

The victory against Everton puts Fulham in line for an FA Cup and Premier League Cup double with their fifth victory of the season over National Division opponents.

The Cottagers reached April's final of the Premier League Cup by beating holders Arsenal at the semi-final stage.

They have also overcome Leeds United, Charlton Athletic and Southampton Saints in the women's game's major Cup competitions.
