Cyncoed Ladies twice came from behind to win 3-2 and knock reigning League Champions Swansea City out of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League Cup at the quarter final stages.
Swansea, winners of the trophy two seasons ago, took an early lead through Stacey John-Davis but Cyncoed ensured they were level at half time when Lauren Harris equalised seven minutes before the break. The Swans went back in front six minutes after the restart thanks to Sarah Adams, however Cyncoed responded quickly and were back on terms with a leveller from Rosina Hill. The game looked to be heading for extra time but with four minutes remaining, Cyncoed went ahead for the first time and captain Gwennan Davies' strike proved to be decisive and handed her side a superb victory.
Cyncoed's opponents in the semi finals will be Rhyl Ladies, who also staged a comeback themselves to win 2-1 away to Port Talbot Town after extra time. The home side went ahead midway through the first half through Jesci Hare and were on the verge of another appearance in the semi finals, when Emily Jones equalised in injury time to send the game into the extra period. Jones was to strike again late on with her second on the day to send the Lilywhites into the last four for the first time.
Cup holders Cardiff Met Ladies are through to the semi finals once again after winning 3-0 away to Caldicot Town. The home side put up a good fight but a double from Jas Simpson, along with an Erin Murray goal, maintained the Archers' winning start to the season.
Cardiff Met will away in the semi finals again, to Abergavenny Women who ran out 4-1 winners over Cardiff City FC. Kate Jeremiah gave Abergavenny an eighth minute lead which was doubled by Maxine Mudge, before Shannon Evans pulled a goal back for City just after the half hour. In the second half, Jeremiah and Mudge both completed their doubles to round off an impressive victory for their side and take them to within one stage of another appearance in the Final.
