Kemar Roofe scored twice as fourth-tier Oxford United pulled off the first major shock in this season's FA Cup by stunning Premier League stragglers Swansea City 3-2 Sunday. Chelsea avoided the same fate, beating third-tier Scunthorpe United 2-0, while Tottenham Hotspur needed an 89th-minute penalty from Harry Kane to salvage a 2-2 draw at home to Leicester City.Swansea manager Alan Curtis, who was this week placed in charge until the end of the season following the dismissal of Garry Monk, gambled by making 10 changes to his starting XI at the Kassam Stadium.He saw his team go ahead with a beautifully constructed goal, Montero darting in from the left, exchanging passes with Marvin Emnes and beating goalkeeper Sam Slocombe with a deft, improvised finish.With two minutes remaining, Leicester winger Nathan Dyer was penalized for handball and Kane, who had come on in the 68th minute, slammed home the ensuing penalty to keep Spurs in the cup.Diego Costa steered in Branislav Ivanovic's cross to give Chelsea a 13th-minute lead and half-time substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek, 19, clipped home his first goal for the club from Cesar Azpilicueta's pass in the 68th minute.
