Swansea University reach quarter finals

Swansea University have reached the quarter finals of the Genero Adran Trophy for the first time after beating Pontypridd Utd on a penalty shootout, following a 1-1 draw.

Both goals came in the opening sixteen minutes with Jessica Goucher putting the University in front, and Pontypridd equalising through Efa Preece-Jones two minutes later. Neither team could produce a winner from that point and it was the students who emerged as 6-5 victors on penalties, to claim a higher division scalp.

The other four ties played on Sunday all resulted in emphatic victories, including Cardiff City Women against Pontardawe Town. Mackenzie Olden, Rhianne Oakley and Eliza Collie each scored four times, Olivia Basham weighed in with a brace and they were joined on the scoresheet by Lisa Owen, Ffion Price, Danielle Broadhurst, Hollie Smith, Tija Richardson, Grace Phillips and Demi Parry.

Emily Thomas had a good day for Swansea City, finding the net five times in their thirteen goal victory away to Llandudno. Robyn Pinder, Chloe Chivers and Stacey John-Davis all netted twice and the others came from Katy Hosford and Jessica Williams.

Cardiff Met Women were a third team to hit double figures against lower division opposition, scoring ten times against Coed Duon. Esme Kilburn-Thompson spearheaded the win with a five-goal haul, Eve Pearson and Anna Houghton both contributed doubles and Kennesha Nanette added the other for the Archers.

Aberystwyth Town faced a difficult trip to Connah’s Quay Nomads but came through with a 5-0 victory, to become the fifth team into the quarter finals so far. Gwenllian Lloyd hit a ten minute hat-trick, the third of which was from the penalty spot, during the first half to help Aber take control and they went on to put the seal on the victory with late strikes from Imogen Scourfield and Rebecca Mathias.
