The Charlton Women`s team comfortably progressed through to the quarter-final of the Capital Women`s Senior Cup but had to comeback from conceding an early goal.
Bexley based Parkwood who play two divisions below the Addicks netted two first half goals but in the end a hat-trick from Kit Graham, a brace from skipper Kim Dixson plus goals from Charlotte Gurr and Daisy Monaghan confortably saw the Addicks through.
On a bumpy pitch and in windy conditions Charlton got off to the worst possible start when a defensive error saw former Addick Charlie Myhill give the home side a shock lead after 4 minutes.
On 14 minutes Charlton levelled the score ollowing a strong driving run from Kit Graham who set up Charlotte Gurr to slot home from 6 yards.
Two minutes later the Addicks took the lead as Grahams left wing cross was swept home first time by Dixson.
Parkwood were soon back in the game as another defensive mistake presented Emily Vaughan with an easy goal.
Just past the half hour mark the Addicks edged in front as neat play between Katie Flack and Charlotte Gurr set up Graham to fire home from the edge of the area.
A minute into the second half Charlton extended their lead as Daisy Monaghan sent a superb 20 yard effort into the top corner of the goal for her first senior goal.
Just before the hour mark Graham netted twice in as many minutes. Firstly curling an effort from the edge of the area into the top for corner before completing her hat-trick on 58 minutes from close range.
The final goal came after 83 minutes as skipper Dixson fired a 25 yard free-kick inches below the crossbar.
The Addicks will travel to Enfield Town in the quarter-final on 19 November.
