Cardiff City FC tightened their grip on third place with a 3-1 win at Cyncoed. Catherine Walsh struck early on for the Bluebirds with a half volley, followed by Ffion Price’s first goal for the club. Megan Saunders pulled a goal back on the hour mark, only for Zoe Atkins to restore the two-goal cushion ten minutes later.
