Cardiff Met Ladies 1 (Sargent 70) Llanidloes 0
Cardiff Met Ladies became the first ever winners of the Welsh Premier Women's League Cup on Sunday as they beat Llanidloes 1-0 at the GenQuip Stadium, Port Talbot.
The students remain undefeated so far this season and started the match confidently in the Port Talbot sunshine. However the best chance of the first twenty minutes fell to Kate Thomas of Llanidloes but Yzzy Taylor smartly blocked her effort from six yards.
Emily Brown's 20-yard effort after half an hour whistled past Rebecca Gunson's left hand post and the game remained goalless going into the break.
Nine minutes into the second period, Jemma Lloyd's rasping effort was well saved by Taylor in the Met goal and the keeper also had to be very alert to three headers within a three minute period on the hour mark as Jenny Broughall and two efforts from Kate Thomas went close.
Llanidloes were left rueing their missed opportunities though as Ellie Sargent scored a truly memorable individual goal with twenty minutes remaining. She beat three defenders at pace before accurately placing her shot past Gunson - a goal worthy of winning any cup final.
Emily Brown came close to doubling the advantage with five minutes remaining but she blazed her shot over the bar.
Cardiff Met saw the game out for a historic victory and an afternoon of cursing missed opportunities for Llanidloes. The trophy is the first of a potential 'treble' for the university side as they currently lead the Shared Access Welsh Premier Women's League by nine points and face Swansea City in the FAW Women's Cup Final.
