Briton Ferry Llansawel 2-2 Abergavenny
Cardiff Met 2-0 Cyncoed

Title Within Swansea’s Grasp
There was only the one goal in it at Rhyl at half-time, a 25th-minute effort from Stacey John.
Sophie Hancocks doubled the lead following a Katy Hosford corner in the 58th minute and shortly afterwards John made it 3-0.
Katy Hosford buried a free-kick from 35 yards for the fourth goal in added time.
The Swans may need to wait until their final game on 23rd April to seal the title, unless Cardiff Met drop points in the meantime.
Archers Keep Up The Chase
Cardiff Met did all they could to prolong the title race, with a 2-0 capital derby defeat of Cyncoed.
Chloe O’Connor’s 14th-minute opener was added to by a rare goal from Steph Turner 9 minutes before the break.
The students put aside their championship battle with Swansea next week as the pair clash in the Welsh Cup Final at Penybont FC, kick-off 2pm.
Bluebirds Bag Only Goal At Aber
Cardiff City FC Women were 1-0 winners at Aberystwyth Town, to close the gap on third-placed Abergavenny.
Although Aber keeper Katie Christopher saved a penalty, City did break the deadlock to take all three points.
Briton Ferry Let Two-Goal Lead Slip
Basement side Briton Ferry missed out on a first ever WPWL victory, as they were unable to hold onto a two-goal advantage over Abergavenny.
Walkley and a Lucy Powell penalty had the home side in command but Ceri Hudson and Lauren Boyd hit back to rescue a point for the visitors.
Briton Ferry trail Rhyl by four points with three games to go and they meet in next week’s only league fixture.
