Nomads cause Cup upset
 Women's Football WFA News - 21 Feb 2020
 
Connah's Quay Nomads produced a huge upset when they beat Port Talbot Town 2-1 to reach the semi finals of the FAW Women's Cup at the first attempt.
 
The North Wales Women's League side's victory was all the more impressive after having gone a goal down to their Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League opponents during the first half.
 
Lauren Amor slotted home from the penalty spot to put Port Talbot in front but the Nomads got themselves back on level terms just before half time through a well taken goal from Candice Nellist. Rebecca Bannister then put Connah's Quay ahead for the first time, early in the second half, and the Nomads stood firm under increasing Port Talbot pressure as the match wore on - with goalkeeper Rhonwen Wilde in outstanding form - to record a historic victory and reach the last four in only the eleventh competitive match in the team's history.
 
The draw for the semi finals has paired Sara Hilton's side with WPWL leaders Swansea City, who booked their place with a win against Bethel Ladies last week.
 
The other two quarter final tie were postponed for a second time but one of them was played on Wednesday night and it saw holders Cardiff Met Women bow out of the competition after they were beaten 3-1 by Cardiff City Women.
 
The Bluebirds got off to a flying start with Kate Jeremiah giving them an early lead and Zoe Atkins adding the second five minutes later. Alana Murphy completed a great first half for City when she put them three ahead from the penalty spot, two minutes before the interval. Erin Murray pulled a goal back for the Archers late on but they could not prevent City from taking their place in the last four where they will play either Llandudno Ladies or Abergavenny Women, who will make a third attempt to play their quarter final tie this weekend. Both semi finals will be played at neutral venues.
