Five-star Cardiff in Cup triumph

Five-star Cardiff in Cup triumph - 19 Apr 2016 - Women's Football NewsCardiff City FC 5 MBi Llandudno 2
Cardiff City FC were crowned the FAW Women's Cup Champions for the first time after they came from behind to beat MBi Llandudno in Sunday's final at Newtown, with striker Shannon Evans scoring an excellent hat-trick in a 5-2 win. 
The underdogs from the north made the best possible start as attacking midfielder Katie Bowe scored with a fantastic 25-yard strike which lobbed over Ceryn Chamberlain in the Cardiff goal.
City were level just four minutes later though, as Kylie Nolan scored with her second chance after her initial goalbound shot was blocked.
The Nolan and Shannon Evans strike partnership looked threatening with every opportunity and they again linked well for Evans to lob Town 'keeper Jessica Hughes from short range and give City the lead for the first time on 18 minutes.
Llandudno's influential defender Jemila Bukari sustained a knee injury midway through the first half and despite limping on, she was unable to be as prominent as she usually is for her team.
Just before the break, Town went close to an equaliser, but Sofie Owen's strike went narrowly wide.
Twenty minutes after the interval, the injured Bukari was replaced and shortly after, City capitalised as Shannon Evans beat two defenders to finish a great solo effort for her second of the afternoon, making it 3-1. Shortly after, Nolan was through on goal, but Hughes saved well.
City continued to exert pressure and after 'tudno skipper Claire Colville fouled Evans in the box, substitute Chelsea Cochrane stepped up to convert confidently to make it 4-1 with 73 minutes played.
Sarah Colville's team didn't give up and Catrin Thomas gave them hope on 76 minutes as she scrambled the ball over to make it 4-2 and shortly after, Rosie Hughes was denied from close range as Chamberlain saved well.
But it was Evans who will be remembered for her performance in the Final as she latched on to a long through ball to claim her hat-trick with a wonderful finish on 82 minutes.
