Cardiff Met Women put the seal on a domestic treble when they defeated Abergavenny Women 2-0 in the FAW Women's Cup Final, to add to their Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League and Premier League Cup successes.
Played at the rarely used FA of Wales ground at Dragon Park, Newport on a pitch that not surprisingly was in excellent condition, although on the down side, the spectators were crammed into a small rather inadequate 200 capacity section.
Cardiff Met were on the attack from the start and it came as no surprise when, soon after Alice Griffiths had hit the bar with a header, they took the lead on 19 minutes from the impressive Madison Schupbach who was given time to control a high ball from Rebecca Mathias and place past Abergavenny goalkeeper Charlotte Hastings.
Met missed a great chance to double the lead before Schupbach did so on 35 minutes, giving Hastings no chance after a Naomi Clipston corner had been half cleared. Another chance followed, leaving Cardiff two up at half time; a lead which ought to have been more.
The tempo of the game slowed in the second half, with Abergavenny intent on not conceding any more, and Cardiff Met seemingly content to maintain their lead. Kate Jeremiah did go close for Abergavenny with a shot which was just wide, and in one move of note, Griffiths again hit the woodwork for Met after a Stacey Ayling corner had been half cleared.
