A five-goal second half blitz against Cyncoed Ladies helped Swansea City stay two points clear at the top of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League.
The crucial moment of the match came a minute before half time, when Laura Davies sent Swansea into the break with a lead, and the Swans never looked back from that point. Tija Richardson netted a double during the second half and an own goal further increased the Swans' advantage, before Chloe Chivers and Emma Beynon wrapped up a 6-0 victory with late strikes.
The two teams immediately below Swansea in the table came face to face and it was Cardiff Met Women who won a well contested match 4-2 against Abergavenny Women, to keep themselves two points off the pace albeit having played a game more. Met took a two-goal lead in the first half thanks to Lucy Finch and Shannon Evans, and they doubled this advantage after the interval with further strikes from Sophie Hancocks and Emily Richards. Lyndsey Davies and Amy Williams reduced the arrears for Abergavenny as they tried to stage a fightback but Met closed the game out to increase the gap between the two teams to six points.
Cardiff City Women returned from Cascade Youth Club with a 2-0 victory, a result which takes them into the top half of the table and level on points with third placed Abergavenny. Phoebie Poole put the Bluebirds in front after eighteen minutes and Catherine Walsh sealed the points when she scored from the penalty spot, midway through the second half.
Port Talbot Town complete a trio of teams level on points following their 3-1 success away to Aberystwyth Town. The home side were looking for a second straight victory and took the lead six minutes into the second half thanks to Libby Isaac but within eight more minutes they were behind; goals from Lauren Amor and Rachel Bell turning the match in Port Talbot's favour. Courtenay Thomas completed the win for Port Talbot as she netted the third goal with three minutes remaining.
