Llanidloes retained the Central Wales Cup for a third consecutive time by beating Newcastle Emlyn 3-1 in the Final at Cae Barker on Sunday.
A breathtaking opening three minutes saw Llanidloes' Steph Hughson execute a perfect 20-yard volley that put her team into a stunning lead.
Five minutes latter Daisy Smith made a mazy run that found the feet of Sian Jones just to see her shot go wide of Newcastle Emlyn's goal, moments after Llanidloes' Abi Ingram saw her volley find the safe hands of Newcastle keeper Ffion Ashman.
Both teams proved their Welsh Premier Women's League status with Newcastle Emlyn hitting back hard, Claire Thomas turning the defence team of Alys Reynolds and Alex George and only being denied the opener by the quick thinking of goalkeeper Moden Phaenthasong as she pushed the ball over the bar. The corner was well taken by Amanda John and just missed the head of Carys Davies.
A quick break from this play saw Sian Jones feed the ball through to Nia Davies only to be denied by a good tackle from Sharon Llewelyn.
The second half started in the same fashion as the first and a minute after the restart, Daisy Smith found the back of the net to put Llanidloes two up.
Again and again Newcastle Emlyn battled back and ran hard at the Llanidloes defence, with the best effort coming from Marie Tilely in the 52nd minute and Josey Wyngrove on the hour.
However it was another fast break in the 77th minute that saw Hughson put her team three goals ahead with a beautiful chip over the head of Ashman.
Determined not to give up, Newcastle battled right until the end with a left wing run from Jackie Mc Kinley finding the feet of Amanda John who saw her shot go just wide of the woodwork. However they were rewarded with a well placed header from Carys Davies in the final minute to put them on the scoresheet.
Both teams will play each other in the Welsh Premier Women's League from next season when the Northern and Southern conferences amalgamate in what looks to be an exciting and welcome development in the women's game in Wales.
