Cardiff City Claim Inaugural WPWL Title

CARDIFF CITY FC 5 WREXHAM 2

Cardiff City FC claimed the inaugural Welsh Premier Women’s League title as they beat a gallant Wrexham side at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday.
Before the match started they had a 14 goal advantage over closest rivals Cardiff Met who were hosting Llandudno Junction at the same time.
Rachel Rowe calmed the nerves of the home supporters after 24 minutes as she opened the scoring and two further impressive strikes by Danielle Broadhurst before the break put the home side firmly in the driving seat.
Regular updates were fed from the Met game – and it became clear midway through the second half that the Students were not going to claw back the required goals to clinch the title themselves on goal difference. This allowed Cardiff City to relax a little – and their defence relaxed a little too much just before the hour mark (58) as Lowri Edwards netted for the visitors.
After 76 minutes of play,substitute Siobhan Walsh set up a simple tap in Alicia Davies but two minutes later Kate Edwards replied impressively for Wrexham.
Davies claimed her second and sealed the victory and the title for her side with two minutes left as she calmy slotted her side's 5th goal of the game passed Rosie Lamprey.
Congratulations to Cardiff City – they only lost one game all season. Commiserations in equal measures to Cardiff Met who were left rueing their only league defeat of the season against the newly crowned Champions.

Llongyfarchiadau mawr i Ddinas Caerdydd am ennill y Bencampwriaeth ar wahaniaeth goliau. Roedd eu buddugoliaeth 5-2 yn erbyn Wrecsam yn Stadiwm Dinas Caerdydd yn ddigon iddyn nhw gipio coron y Cynghrair. Dim ond 10 o goliau'n salach oedd record Myfyrwyr Met Caerdydd wedi iddyn nhw guro Cyffordd Llandudno 8-1 ar Sul ola'r tymor - Mor agos on eto mor bell at ennill y Bencampwriaeth eu hunain.
Chwaraewyd yr ornest rhwng Caernarfon ac Aber ar Gae Baker ym Mhenrhyncoch ac er mai'r Cofis oedd y clwb cartref yn swyddogol - Aber enillodd yn eithaf cyfforddus.
