Cardiff City FC Women went second in the Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League, Briton Ferry Llansawel got off the bottom, while Penrhyn Bay won the FAW Girls’ U-16 Cup.

Cardiff City FC Women went above Swansea City into second with a 4-1 away victory in a capital clash at Cyncoed,

Murphy bagged a first-half brace, with Emily Griffiths scoring off a Kanisha-Mae Underdown free kick and Zoe Atkins racing through to fire home, Sophie Norman then netting a stoppage-time consolation.

First for Ferry

Briton Ferry Llansawel claimed a first win of the campaign as they came from behind to beat mid-table Abergavenny, thereby climbing off the bottom at the expense of Rhyl.

Kate Jeremiah had the visitors ahead but Briton Ferry soon equalised through Lucy Powell and Megan Kearle hit the winner.

Bay Girls bag trophy

FAW U-16 Girls’ Cup Final saw Penryhn Bay take the trophy with a 3-2 result over Villa Dino Christchurch at Aberystwyth Town FC, where Ella Jones hit a hat-trick.

For Villa Dino, it was a third final defeat in four years and this time after leading twice through Gemma Prosser and Amy Williams.

Eight minutes after Villa had gone 2-1 up they were 3-2 behind, Jones levelling with a solo effort before being set up by Ellie Bradley for the decider.
