Cardiff Met Ladies will play Cyncoed Ladies in the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League Cup Final after both sides came through their respective semi finals on Sunday.
Holders Met made the trip to Abergavenny Women in a repeat of last season's Final and they were to triumph 4-3 after extra time in a thrilling match, taking a step closer towards becoming the first team to retain the trophy and denying the home side a fourth successive appearance in the Final.
Met got off to a great start and goals in quick succession from Naomi Clipston and Stephanie Turner put them two ahead by the half hour mark. An own goal brought the home side back into the game but Clipston restored the two-goal advantage with her second goal, early in the second half. Abergavenny were not finished though and gave themselves hope when Kate Jeremiah reduced the arrears, then Maxine Mudge converted an injury time penalty to level the scores and send the game into extra time. Monique Fischer put the Archers back in front six minutes into the extra period and this time there was no coming back for Abergavenny, Met holding on for a hard earned victory.
Congratulations to Cyncoed Ladies who reach the Final for the first time, following their 3-0 victory over Rhyl Ladies.
Rhyl were also playing in their first semi final but it was Cyncoed who built on their superb win against Swansea City in the previous round and after Caitlin Bevan gave them a first half lead, Jess Williams and Julia Moulton added further goals after the break to take their side to within one game of winning their first major trophy.
To complete a good day for teams from the capital, Cardiff City FC won 3-0 away to Port Talbot Town in the only league match to be played.
Amy Wathan netted twice and Shannon Evans added the other for a result which takes City back into the top three.
