aet; Cardiff Met won 5-4 on penalties

Cardiff Met Ladies lift the FAW Women's Cup for a second time after narrowly beating Swansea City Ladies 5-4 on penalties at Bryntirion Park.
Cardiff Met were gifted an early lead when Swansea City Ladies keeper, Courtney Young failed to collect a ball passed back as it spilled over her own line on the 15th minute.
It looked like a Cardiff Met win until Swansea's Katy Hosford took a strike at goal from 30 yards out and slotted the ball into the back of the net to level the scores on the 89th minute.
With the score 1-1, the game went into extra time at Bryntirion Park. A through ball from Cardiff Met's Chloe O'Connor that was sent into the path of captain Robyn Pinder looked to be a promising opportunity but the ball went wide.
On the 107th minute, Swansea goalscorer Katie Hosford scored her second of the match to take Swansea into the lead in extra time with a strike from the edge of the box, before Cardiff Met equalised with a Chloe O'Connor header to bring the score level, resulting in a penalty shootout.
Both teams' initial penalties were missed before Cardiff Met's Stephanie Turner scored. Swansea's Stacey John equalised before captain, Robyn Pinder extended the lead further. Swansea levelled the scoring with a successful penalty from Sarah Adams before Rebecca Mathias hit home the final penalty for Cardiff Met.
The victory means Cardiff Met Ladies lift the FAW Trophy for the second time in the club's history, after previously beating Swansea City Ladies 4-0 at Stebonheath Park in the 2013-14 season.
Cardiff Met Ladies:
Yzzy Taylor, Lowri Savage, Rebecca Mathias, Francesca Waltho, Stephanie Turner, Ellie Walker Smith, Aimee Todd, Lauren Townsend, Robyn Pinder, Chloe O'Connor, Jassie Vasconcelos.
Swansea City:
Courtney Young, Alicia Powe, Sarah Adams, Sophie Hancocks, Emma Beynon, Kelly Newcombe, Ria Hughes, Stacey Webber, Jodie Passmore, Katy Hosford, Stacey John.
