Swansea City 2 (Passmore pen 64, Hosford 72)
Cardiff City Women 1 (Murphy 54)

Swansea City Ladies had to come from behind against Cardiff City Women to win 2-1 following an entertaining Final at the Cardiff City Stadium.
It had been a tight and nervy affair in the first half of this domestic showpiece final with the best chances only being created as half time approached.
Swansea were the first to go close when Jodie Passmore's free kick was well hit but matched by the save of Cardiff goalkeeper Ceryn Chamberlain.
Shortly afterwards, Swansea were denied again but on this occasion it was Cardiff captain Siobhan Walsh who defended superbly to block an effort by Katy Hosford from close range.
The entertainment levels rose during the second half and Cardiff City put themselves in front with a lovely goal. After Shannon Evans advanced with the ball up the right, she executed a well timed pass to team mate Alana Murphy, who finished well to make it 1-0 to the Bluebirds.
Following a foul on Passmore in the Cardiff area just ten minutes later, Swansea were awarded a penalty and with it a way back into the match. Passmore picked herself up to make it 1-1 with a confident strike from the penalty spot.
Swansea sensed that the tide was turning in this fixture and their momentum saw them dangerous in attack but the what would turn out to be the winning goal came from an unlikely position out wide on Swansea's left wing. Somehow, Hosford's ball into the box beat Chamberlain at her near post to give the Swans a 2-1 lead.
Despite five minutes of added time and Cardiff sending bodies forward, Swansea held on to their slender lead. Substitute Emma Beynon almost increased their lead in the final minute with an effort which was narrowly off target but the Swans had done enough on the day to win the FAW Women's Cup.
Swansea City: Gemma Border, Lauren Hancock (sub Emma Beynon 89mins), Alicia Powe, Alison Witts, Ria Hughes, Ellie Lake, Sophie Hancocks, Kelly Newcombe, Katy Hosford, Jodie Passmore, Stacey John-Davis (sub Sarah Adams 78mins). Subs not used: Kate Brisland, Emily Richards, Katie Davies.
Cardiff City FC: Ceryn Chamberlain, Mollie Jones (sub Lucy McDonough 70mins), Montana May, Hannah Daley, Siobhan Walsh, Lucy Thomas (sub Alicia Davies 80mins), Kelly Bourne, Kanisha-Mae Underdown (sub Amy Wathen 78mins), Shannon Evans, Lisa Owen, Alana Murphy.
