Cardiff City FC 2-2 Cardiff Met
Briton Ferry Llansawel 0-1 Port Talbot Town

Phoebe Poole fired Cardiff City FC ahead three minutes after the interval but Cardiff Met were soon level, as a Robyn Pinder free kick was turned into her own net by Grace Corne. Pressure from Jasmine Simpson forced an own-goal as the Bluebirds regained the lead just after the hour mark, but ten minutes later Ellie Preece made it 2-2 from Amy Long’s cross.

Port Talbot moved level on points with Cardiff City, after a goal from Jesci Hare on the hour gave them the three points at Briton Ferry.

Two goals in the last 15 minutes saw the points shared between Cyncoed and Abergavenny. Ffion David broke the deadlock for the visitors, only for fellow substitute Monet Legall to hit back for the hosts.
