The capital clash between Cardiff City FC and Cardiff Met saw the holders leading through Erin Murray’s goal for much of the match but a late rush of goals made for a dramatic finish. Kate Jeremiah levelled with five minutes left to force extra-time, Lucy Finch restored the Archers advantage and although Catherine Walsh equalised on 118 minutes, Met won the resulting shoot-out.

Swansea City saw off Port Talbot Town 3-0, Shaunna Jenkins’ first half goal added to by a quickfire double from Sarah Adams and Katy Hosford before the hour mark.

Abergavenny eased through to a Welsh Cup semi-finals against Cardiff City FC with a 13-1 victory at Llandudno. The North Wales side who withdrew from the WPWL did respond to conceding twice in the first minute with a Jordanne Greenough goal but Amy Thrupp’s treble set up a large margin of victory for the visitors.

Swansea City play Connah’s Quay Nomads in the other 15 March tie, with venues to be confirmed.
