Rhydyfelin came from two-goals down against Newcastle Emlyn to lift the FAW U16 Girls Cup at Stebonheath Park in Llanelli.
Just prior to half time, Rhydyfelin looked out of contention until Jasmine Simpson ended a lovely move up the pitch with a well taken goal to make it 2-1 and give her team some hope.
Rhydyfelin had enjoyed much of the possession during the opening exchanges but after seeing Zara Payne's cheeky lobbed effort saved by Saran Jones before being cleared off the line, Newcastle Emlyn made them pay.
Emlyn captain Elysha Jones scored a stunning goal from outside the box that went in off the left post, leaving Rhydyfelin goalkeeper Caitlyn Facey helpless.
Almost immediately after, Facey conceded a penalty when she fouled an attacker in the box. There was no other option for the Referee, other than awarding Newcastle Emlyn a penalty kick. Nieve Jenkins stepped up and excellently placed the ball out of the goalkeeper's reach.
Rhydyfelin could have conceded more as they looked shaken by the two quick goals, however, they demonstrated determined team spirit and after finding some composure got themselves back into the game through Simpson.
Rhydyfelin played the second half with intensity and they achieved an incredible comeback when some excellent endeavour from Chloe Tiley saw her run through into the box and score, despite some heavy pressure from a defender.
They went close once again when the play re-started but Saran Jones pulled off a fine save to keep the score level. However, Jones was soon beaten by Tiley, who gave Rhydyfelin the lead moments later.
Newcastle Emlyn were struggling to cope with Rhydyfelin and Zara Payne practically put the game beyond doubt in the 56th minute with a 30-yard shot that saw the bounce of the ball lob Jones for 4-2.
Rhydyfelin wrapped the game up with a fifth goal in added time as Simpson stole through for her second goal of the match.
