Cardiff Met Ladies remain on course for a potential Welsh trophy 'treble' after they advanced to the semi finals of the FAW Women's Cup with a 5-0 victory over Cardiff City FC.
In the tie of the round between the top two in the Shared Access Welsh Premier Women's League, Cardiff Met took the lead after seven minutes through Emily Brown and they added further goals before half time from Laura Walkley and Chloe O'Connor. Brown struck again, seven minutes into the second half, to make it four with Emily Allen completing the win with the final goal, a quarter of an hour from time.
One other tie managed to survive the weather on Sunday and it is PILCS who are in the last four after negotiating a tricky tie away to Cwmbran Celtic with a 2-0 win.
However this did not tell the full story as the WPWL high fliers were given a hard game by their lower league rivals in a thrilling derby cup tie, Alana Murphy went close to opening the scoring for Cwmbran in the second half. Lyndsey Davies hit the bar for PILCS at the other end and there were further chances for both teams until the final minute, when PILCS were awarded a penalty. Kate Jeremiah stepped up but Su Young guessed right and kept her shot out to send the game into extra time.
The first period could not produce a breakthrough and penalties were looming but with six minutes left, PILCS broke the deadlock when Amy Thrupp broke through to lift the ball over Young and open the scoring. Cwmbran threw everything they could forward to try and grab an equaliser but the game was made safe when Lyndsey Davies scored a well taken goal on the counter attack to finally put an end to Cwmbran's brave effort and send the Pontypool-based side into the semi finals for the second year in succession.
Caernarfon Town's home tie with Llanfair Utd and the other quarter final between Swansea City and Wrexham were both postponed and will be played this week.
