Kerr was left on the bench for the semifinal against West Ham United but there was no need for Chelsea coach Emma Hayes to call on the Matildas captain, with Pernille Harder‘s hat trick leading the Blues to a thumping 6-0 win.
Harder opened the scoring after just four minutes and Chelsea kicked on from there with Matildas second-choice goalkeeper Arnold contributing to the rout.
Arnold let Sophie Ingle‘s shot squirm under her for Chelsea’s second goal in the 15th, then turned a clearance straight to Harder for the third just 10 minutes later.
Mastrantonio was left on Bristol’s bench as they progressed courtesy of Kiera Skeels‘ 72nd-minute header.
