Swansea City Ladies - 1

Abergavenny Women FC -1

Abergavenny Women FC will have another bite of the Welsh Cup cherry following revelations that Cardiff Met University had fielded two ineligible players earlier in the competition

And the ladies warmed up for their quarter-final date with Cardiff City at Pen-y-Pound this Sunday with an epic match against Swansea City.

The seasiders started much the stronger and took an early lead after a mishit shot found it’s way past Charlotte Hastings in the Abergavenny goal.

Aber kept their heads up and were unlucky not to equalise when Lyndsey Davies was sent clear, but a fine save denied her and the follow up went wide.

Kate Jeremiah and Lauren Boyd remained constant threats and despite trailing at the break Abergavenny knew it was very much game on.

In the second-half Lyndsey Davies was again denied when through on goal. More drama unfolded when Swansea’s penalty rebounded off the upright.

It was end to end now, and with time running out Lauren Boyd hit another chance wide.

With minutes left on the clock, 15-year-old Eliza Atkins came on and and in the 85th minute she broke down the right and slid in a pinpoint delivery to Lyndsey Davies who slotted home.

It was a titanic battle and a fair result, but all thoughts now turn to the Welsh Cup and Cardiff City on Sunday.
