Wrexham saw off Briton Ferry with two second-half goals, Rosie Hughes making the breakthrough just after half time and substitute Libby Mackenzie adding the second.

Pontypridd United conceded an early own-goal and Cardiff City Women soon doubled their lead through Tija Richardson. Eliza Collie got the third for the Bluebirds in the dying minutes.

Lower division Cascade gave Swansea City an early scare with a goal from E Parry but Stacey John-Davis turned it round with a brace, Kelsey Davis then giving the Swans a 3-1 interval lead. Katy Hosford scored twice in the latter stages and Jasmine Guymer got the sixth in stoppage time.
