Cyncoed stun Swans

Cyncoed twice came from behind to record an excellent 3-2 away win over Swansea City.

Stacey John-Davis stabbed home from close range to give the Swans an early lead but Julia ?? equalised in the 38th minute.

Sarah Adams restored the advantage with a low strike in the 51st minute, only for Rosina Hill to level just 4 minutes later.

Gwen Davies then dramatically won it with an impressive lofted strike in the 86th minute.

Rush of red cards as Rhyl win

Rhyl pulled off a 2-1 extra-time victory away at Port Talbot Town, where three red cards were shown.

Jesci Hare put Port Talbot ahead on 18 minutes and the home side’s advantage grew when Rhyl had a player sent off.

But Hare walked herself after the interval, later followed by team-mate Laura May-Walkley.

With 2 minutes left, Rhyl scored to force extra-time and went on to get the winner, with the hosts down to eight players after they lost Lowri Ridings following a clash of heads.

Abergavenny scored twice in each half, as they went through 4-1 at home to Cardiff City FC Women.

Kate Jeremiah put the hosts one up after only 9 minutes and Maxine Mudge doubled the lead, before the Bluebirds replied by half-time through Shannon Evans.

Jeremiah and Mudge then both struck again, in the space on three minutes midway through the second half, to secure a place in the last four.

Holders progress

Holders Cardiff Met went safely through to the semi-finals with all three goals at Caldicot Town.

Jas Simpson opened the scoring for the Archers on 40 minutes, after Caldicot’s keeper made a great save from a Naomi Clipston effort.

Two goals in the last quarter of an hour sealed the win, as Erin Murray’s cross come shot went in and 2 minutes later, Simpson got her second of the game.
