The top two teams in the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League remain level on points at the top after both recorded away victories over the weekend.
Swansea City were first in action on Saturday as they travelled to Cyncoed Ladies for a match which was being broadcast live on BBC Wales/BBC Cymru. Ellie Lake opened the scoring after eighteen minutes, with Emma Beynon and Jessica Williams adding further goals in the second half to seal a 3-0 victory for the Swans, which took them back to the top of the table and extended their unbeaten run to twelve matches.
Cardiff Met Women then went to Abergavenny Women the following day and picked up a 4-0 win which saw them regain the leadership. The Archers led at half time through a goal from Chloe O'Connor, before taking a firm grip when Emily Richards and Shannon Evans scored in a three minute spell. Ellie Preece rounded off the scoring for Met with four minutes remaining to maintain their challenge whilst dealing a blow to Abergavenny's hopes for a top three place.
Port Talbot Town meanwhile boosted their challenge for the top three as they recorded their biggest victory of the season, scoring six times without reply past Cascade Youth Club. Bethan Lloyd and Courtenay Thomas put Port Talbot two goals ahead inside the opening nine minutes, with Thomas netting her second shortly before half time. Port Talbot went on to crown the victory with three further goals in the last five minutes, Jodie Passmore finding the net ahead of further strikes from Lauren Amor and Laura May Walkley. The result takes Port Talbot level on points with third placed Cardiff City Women, who have a marginally better goal difference.
Two of the teams in the bottom three places came face to face and it was Briton Ferry Llansawel who notched up a 1-0 victory over Aberystwyth Town. Sophie Topper scored the only goal of the game, two minutes before half time, to hand Briton Ferry their second win of the season and put them three points ahead of their opponents.
