Briton Ferry Ladies - 2

Abergavenny Women FC - 5

Abergavenny bounced back from the disappointment of losing their first game of the season by traveling to Briton Ferry to take a scalp and book a Welsh Premier League semi-final spot in the process.

A quick start was required, and when Gabi Hughes bulldozed her way through several challenges and fired home within two minutes that’s exactly what Aber got.

Playing in a more advanced role, Hughes was to prove a handful all afternoon.

Ten minutes in and some good work down the left from Alana Murphy led to an own goal and nerves were settled.

Kate Jeremiah slotted home from close range to make it 3-0 after 20 minutes.

Captain Ceri Hudson and central midfield partner Laura Davies had control of the game by this point, but to their credit Briton Ferry didn’t throw in the towel and after a defensive error hit back before the interval to breathe life into the cup tie.

Some early second half pressure was soaked up well by Abergavenny, with the feisty Katrina French in fine form at the heart of the defence.

Alana Murphy made it 4-1 after 65 minutes but again Briton Ferry struck back to make it 4-2 with 15 minutes left on the clock.

A scrambled save by keeper Charlotte Hastings late on kept it comfortable and a Lyndsey Davies goal right on full time was due reward for her non-stop work up front.

Abergavenny now join Swansea City, Cardiff Met and Port Talbot in the hat for the league cup semi-final draw.
