It's been a great night for women's football in Bristol. Bristol Academy have knocked Barcelona out of the European Champion's League to move through to the quarter-finals.

The Vixens went into last night's game with a one-nil lead they'd earned by beating Barcelona in Spain last weekend.

But Barcelona drew level on aggregate at Ashton Gate through a deflected Vicky Losada strike.

Late in the second half, though, Natasha Harding was brought down in the box and Nikki Watts scored the resulting penalty to equalise, sending Bristol through.
