Swansea City Ladies went clear at the top of the Genero Adran Premier after edging second-placed Cardiff City FC 1-0.

Adran Premier

The New Saints 2-6 Cardiff Met
Swansea City 1-0 Cardiff City FC
Barry Town United 1-3 Port Talbot Town
Aberystwyth Town 0-0 Pontypridd Town

Swansea City kept a 100% record thanks to Rhianne Oakley’s penalty on half-time against Cardiff City FC. Kelly Adams had earlier hit the woodwork for the Swans, the only goal coming after Siobhan Walsh was penalised for handball in the box.

Cardiff Met went level on points with second-placed Cardiff City FC with a less than straightforward 6-2 victory at The New Saints. TNS fell behind to an own goal but Marshall and Evans hit back to give them a shock 2-1 lead. It wasn’t until the last quarter of the game that the Archers turned it round, Hutton-Townsend equalising, Preece and Laura-May Walkley each bagging a brace.

Pontypridd stayed a point better off in mid-table than Aberystwyth, whom they had a goalless draw away to.

Port Talbot won 3-1 away to Barry to leapfrog them into sixth spot, despite a first-minute goal from the hosts’ Manon Pearce. Thomas and Owen replied before the half hour and Denscombe completed the scoring early in the second half.
