Met have therefore completed the second leg of a potential trophy treble, having already retained the Orchard Welsh Premier Wonen's League title, and only Abergavenny Women stand in their way of capturing all of the major domestic trophies when they meet in the FAW Women's Cup Final at Dragons Park, Newport this Sunday (2pm).
Swansea had started the brighter of the two sides on the night and Sophie Hancocks had the first half chance of the game, just failing to connect with a cross from Lauren Hancock.
Alice Griffiths fired just wide for the Archers at the other end, before Met took the lead just after the quarter hour mark. Madison Schupbach put Swans goalkeeper Gemma Border under pressure, and her clearance went straight to Olivia Thompson, who coolly lobbed the ball back over Border for the opening goal.
Met took their one-goal lead into the interval but put themselves further in control of the match soon after the restart. Schupbach intercepted a Swansea throw on the edge of their area and the impressive striker gave Border no chance with a powerful strike.
Swansea tried to react to the setback and Stacey John-Davies forced Met goalkeeper Estelle Randall into a good save, but Met continued to look dangerous going forward and Border needed to deny Robyn Pinder at the other end.
The Archers put the result beyond all doubt with six minutes remaining as Alice Griffiths fired home to start off Met celebrations.
Swansea did not give up and Ian Owen's side grabbed a deserved consolation for their efforts during injury time. Katy Hosford drilled a shot from long range which Randall was unable to keep out, but there was no time left to threaten Met's lead and their unbeaten campaign continues, with two matches left to play.
