Holders out as Met win League Cup Derby

Swansea, Rhyl and Cardiff City also progress to Semis

Cyncoed's defence of the WPWL League Cup ended at the Quarter-Final stage as they were beaten 5-0 at home by nieghbours Cardiff Met.

A blistering first half from the league leaders saw them go into the break four up. Madison Schupbach had put the visitors ahead on 5', before three goals in seven minutes put Met in command. Rebecca Mathias deflected a Tija Richardson shot into the net for the second, before Richardson trebled the lead three minutes later, heading in a corner from Naomi Clipston.

Clipston was involved in the fourth goal six minutes before half time, her initial shot being parried into the path of Schupbach who tapped in. Clipston rounded things off on the hour mark to give the Archers a resounding win, which keeps their unbeaten start to the season rolling.

Cardiff City needed extra time to overcome Abergavenny. After Danielle Broadhurst had put City in front in the first half, Laura Davies levelled just after the hour mark, and neither side could find a winner in normal time. Broadhurst struck eight minutes into the extra period though to send City through to the last four.

They'll be joined by Rhyl who reach the Semi-Finals for the second season running thanks to their 3-2 win at Llandudno. Two goals from Rachel Nattrass and one from Zoe Stopford saw the Lilywhites through, Mari Gibbard and Kelsey Davies replying for the home side.

Jodie Passmore's penalty eight minutes into second half injury time sealed Swansea's place in the last four as they beat Port Talbot 2-1 at Victoria Road. Sarah Adams had put the visitors in front early on, before Laura May Walkley equalised after the half hour mark. An injury to Stacey John-Davies saw a lengthy delay in the second half, but as extra time loomed Swans won a penalty and Passmore struck to send them through.
