Port Talbot Town and Cyncoed shared six goals in their Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League encounter.

Cardiff Met 6-0 Briton Ferry Llansawel
Aberystwyth Town 0-5 Swansea City
Cascade 0-3 Abergavenny
Port Talbot Town 3-3 Cyncoed

Cardiff Met hit Briton Ferry Llansawel for six, Chloe O’Connor early goal added to by an Amy Long brace and Erin Murray single by the break. Elianna Chavez then found the net near the start and end of the second period, with Renee Day replying in-between, as Briton Ferry finished seventh.

Swansea City’s Tija Richardson scored in either half at Aberystwyth Town, Stacey John-Davis netted close to half-time, Jessica Williams and an Emma Benyon penalty later adding to the tally. The Swans are two goals behind the leaders but with a game still in hand.

Abergavenny were 3-0 winners at Cascade, Amy Williams scoring ten minutes short of the interval, Lauren Boyd and Eliza Atkins each extending the lead in the last quarter of the game.

Port Talbot Town raced into a 2-0 lead against Cyncoed with Jesci Hare twice on target in the first eight minutes. Alison Witts and Grace Morris hit back in the second half to bring the visitors level and although Hare then completed her hat-trick – before being sent off in the last minute – but a second from Witts saw Cyncoed force a 3-3 draw and thereby seal sixth spot.
