Cardiff City FC continued their defence of the FAW Women's Cup with a 4-2 victory away to Bethel Ladies, which sees them book their place in the semi finals.
However, City were given a scare by Bethel - the last remaining club from outside the Premier League - took a first half lead through Alaw Huws. Alicia Davies netted twice, one from the penalty spot, to put Cardiff in front at the break and Shannon Evens increased their advantage nine minutes into the second half. Bethel were not finished at this stage and Katie Midwinter renewed their hopes by pulling one back on the hour but Cardiff finally made the game safe when Lisa Owen scored with five minutes remaining.
Cardiff Met Ladies emerged as 2-0 winners over Abergavenny Women in the clash between the two sides who reached the League Cup Final last week. Jassie Vasconcelos gave Met the lead against her former team mates on eleven minutes and Chloe O'Connor wrapped up the win with the second goal, deep into the second half.
Last season's beaten finalists Llandudno Ladies are into the last four once again, following their 4-2 win away to Briton Ferry Llansawel. Stacey Tradewell and Rosie Hughes put them two ahead at half time, before Sophie Owen and Tradewell added further goals for Llandudno, who are now the last remaining north Wales team in the competition. Sophie Cardy and Mel Thomas reduced the arrears for Briton Ferry in the last ten minutes but it was the visitors who safely passed through to the semi finals.
Swansea City meanwhile ended the hopes of Rhyl Ladies by beating them 4-1. Stacey John opened the scoring for the Swans after five minutes but Rhyl hit back and Ashley Mills ensured they were on level terms going into the break. John went on to complete her hat-trick with a double strike in the second half and Jodie Passmore rounded off the scoring with the fourth.
