Abergavenny and Cardiff Met become joint leaders of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League with third straight wins.

WPWL – results for Sunday 11 October

Abergavenny 4-0 Cyncoed
Aberystwyth Town 1-2 Cascade YC
Port Talbot Town 1-4 Cardiff Met
Briton Ferry Llansawel 2-5 Cardiff City FC

Lyndsey Davies and Ceri Hudson netted moments apart to set Abergavenny on the way to a 4-0 victory over Cyncoed. Davies got her her second before the break and Mali Summers completed the scoring short of the hour mark, as the home side made it three wins from three.

Cardiff Met took the points 4-1 at Port Talbot Town, to end up with an identical record to Abergavenny and also overtake non-playing Swansea City. Chloe O’Connor scored an early opener and Jodie Passmore made it 2-0 by the halfway point. Courtenay Thomas halved the deficit, only for Lauren Townsend to quickly restore the two-goal cushion and go on to double her tally on 72 minutes.

Cascade came from behind to claim their first ever win at this level, 2-1 away to Aberystwyth Town. Kelly Thomas put the hosts ahead but Holly Hughes equalised a couple of minutes before half-time and Sophie Hamer hit the winner midway through the second period.

Cardiff City FC built a 4-0 lead at Briton Ferry Llansawel, where they ended up 5-2 winners for their first points of the season. Zoe Atkins, Lisa Owen and Hannah Daley all struck in a 14-minute spell leading up to the interval, Phoebe Poole further extending the advantage after the restart. Lowri Baker immediately replied and Sophie Topper got another back for the hosts, before Catherine Walsh netted the Bluebirds’ fifth in the final minute.
