FA of Wales Cup holders Cardiff City overcame UWIC with a convincing 5-0 victory in the quarter finals of the Welsh Cup to go into the draw for the last four.
The two local sides have met four times in this competition in the past six years, with the defending champions progressing on each occasion, and this game played in the beautiful sunshine at Cyncoed was an entertaining game played in a good sporting spirit.
Cardiff scored two goals in the opening half, with Loren Dykes getting the first on 12 minutes and defender Carla Parfitt driving a shot through the UWIC defence into the net to make it 2-0 at the break. Early in the second half, Cardiff brought on Katie Daley for her first game since becoming a Mum, and her debut since returning to the club from Tennessee University. Her entry made an immediate effect as she whipped in an inviting cross which was met with a spectacular overhead kick straight into the net by Charlotte Miller for the goal of the game.
Nicola Cousins rose to fire in Cardiff's fourth on 74 minutes, and striker Natasha Harding (pictured) rounded the scoring off for the champions on 80 minutes and sent Cardiff through to the semi finals for the sixth season in succession.
Just across the way at the University fields in Llanrumney, Cardiff City under-16s were also playing a quarter final game in the Junior Welsh Cup, earning a 1-0 victory over local rivals Margam. A second half own goal from a corner was enough to send Cardiff into the semi finals of the cup that the junior side are hoping to win for the first time.
