Genero Adran Premier leaders Swansea City Ladies stayed goal-difference ahead of Cardiff City FC after an eighth straight win.

Barry Town United 0-5 Swansea City
Cardiff City FC 4-0 The New Saints
Cardiff Met 4-0 Aberystwyth Town
Pontypridd Town 5-1 Port Talbot Town

Swansea City were 5-0 winners at Barry, where Laura Davies and Stacy John-Davis scored first-half goals. Kelly Adams and Jessica Williams netted after the interval and John-Davis got her second from the spot.

Cardiff City were three up inside 25 minutes against TNS, Amy Williams’ opener added to by a quick Catherine Walsh brace. Walsh went on to complete her hat-trick with 20 minutes to go, as City remained level on points with the leaders, albeit from a game more.

Cardiff Met also won 4-0 at home to keep within three points of the top two. Amy Long’s goal was the difference against Aberystwyth at the break, Taylor O’Leary adding a double and Ellie Preece a late fourth.

Pontypridd beat Port Talbot to make it two wins in a week and climb to fourth place. Alana Murphy scored in the opening seconds, Olivia Barnett struck twice in the first half and Kirsty Pervin-Davies once. Courtney Thomas pulled a goal back but Efa Jones got a fifth for Ponty.

They had won the midweek match 3-1 at home to Barry, Murphy twice on target and Robyn Pinder their other scorer, after Manon Pearce had equalised for the visitors.
