Caernarfon Herald - - SPORT -

BETHEL were knocked out of the FAW Women’s Welsh Cup at a strong Northop Hall by a 4-1 mar­gin.

Mi­nus top-scorer Ffion Wil­liams, Bethel started the tie well, but Hall grew into the game and af­ter 13 min­utes Laura Pen­ning­ton picked the ball up out­side the box, drove through the de­fence and rounded the keeper to slot home and break the dead­lock.

Af­ter 25 min­utes a corner from the right was met by Kirstie Ku­ral, who tow­ered above the de­fence to thun­der home with a header.

In the 39th minute Pen­ning­ton again got be­hind the de­fence, rounded the keeper and calmly rolled the ball into an empty net.

Hall did not have it all their own way, their keeper Bethan Thomas mak­ing some great saves to deny Bethel.

Bethel started the sec­ond half the bet­ter team and af­ter 58 min­utes Katie Mid­win­ter cap­i­talised on a keeper er­ror to make it 3-1.

Both keep­ers made some more smart saves but af­ter 72 min­utes Hall wrapped the game up with a neat one-two which put Chelsea Evans through one-on-one and she slot­ted into the corner.
