Delight for Swans in Welsh Cup Final
 Women's Football News 20 Apr 2015
 
Swansea City won the FAW Women's Cup for only the second time in their history on Sunday, defeating Cardiff City 4-2 at Penybont. 
 
In a highly entertaining match, played on the 3G surface at Bryntirion Park, it was the Swans who took the lead in the 15th minute as Wales U19 cap Katy Hosford fired into the left hand corner after a smart dummy from Jodie Passmore.
 
But the Bluebirds responded with a goal of very high quality. The outstanding Lisa Bird chipped a delightful ball over the top on the right to Maria Martins and the Portuguese-born 18 year old finished spectacularly into the roof of the net.
 
Neither side would have complained if the scores had remained equal at the break, but the Swans delivered two killer blows on the stroke of half time. Wales-capped Sarah Adams - who has been plagued by injury this term - had cause to celebrate at the end of a frustrating season as she handed the Swans the lead with their best goal of the afternoon, before the impressive Hosford scored her second deep into stoppage time.
 
Joel Hutton's capital city side needed the first goal after the break to keep their hopes of a first title alive and they did just that as Bird ghosted past three defenders and around Ffion Ashman in the Swansea goal to halve the deficit.
 
Cardiff continued in their hunt for the equaliser, but Swansea were clever in controlling possession to wear down their opponents. In the 87th minute, the tired Bluebirds defence made an error with a stray pass, which Adams capitalised on to beat Cardiff 'keeper Tayla Gould to the ball and the Swans forward trickled the ball into the empty net to confirm the title for Ian Owen's side.
