Cardiff City FC, Cardiff Met and Swansea City are through to the Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League Cup semi-finals.

WPWL CUP – 1 December results

Cardiff City FC 5-1 Abergavenny
Cardiff Met 3-0 Port Talbot Town
Cyncoed 2-2 Aberystwyth Town

Cardiff City Women were pegged back on half-time by an Amelia Forkings own-goal but thay saw off Abergavenny as Danielle Broadhurst restored the lead, Catherine Walsh hit a quick brace and then Kate Jeremiah doubled her tally for the day.

All the goals came in the opening 18 minutes as Cardiff Met defeated Port Talbot Town 3-0, Maddie Schupbach striking twice and Robyn Pinder also on target.

Cyncoed and Aberystwyth Town shared four goals in a 16-minute spell straddling the interval, Athina Varnava and Alison Witts netting for the hosts in response to Kelly Thomas’s opener but Caitlin Williams conceded an own-goal to tie the match.

The last semi-final berth is now between Cyncoed and Port Talbot but the former need to win at neighbours Cardiff Met on Thursday to overtake Town.
