Abergavenny became the only team from the second tier to reach the Genero Adran Trophy quater-finals after a dramatic shootout win over Pontypridd Town.

A quick-fire double from Lyndsey Davies and Lauren Boyd put the Pennies in the ascendancy at the break at the USW Sport Park.

But the home side fought back in the second period, with Alison Witts and Ellie Gunney netting to level the score and send the tie to penalties.

Goalkeeper Charlotte Hastings kept out Renee Day's effort from 12 yards before stepping up to send Abergavenny through to the last eight.

There could have been a difficult challenge for Cardiff Met this weekend with the Archers facing a Llandudno side that have excelled in the Genero Adran North this season.

But Yzzy Taylor’s side stepped up in some style however, with Sophie Hancocks’ goal and Laura-May Walkley’s hat-trick giving them early control.

Met continued to attack with productivity, as Emily Richards and Shannon Evans got on the scoresheet before the interval.

As they have shown all season, the Archers have quality on the bench, as Ellie Preece entered the fray and scored a brace, securing an emphatic 8-0 victory.

Fellow Genero Adran Premier high-flyers Cardiff City faced a long away trip to Genero Adran North outfit Pwllheli.

The hosts put up a brilliant fight and deserve huge credit, but succumbed to a clinical first-half brace from top-flight star Phoebie Poole.

Pwllheli continued to battle in the second period, but Zoe Atkins netted again for the Bluebirds to ensure they secured a 3-0 win.
