Cardiff Met’s win at morning leaders Abergavenny gave Port Talbot Town the chance to become new Welsh Premier leaders, which they did with a good victory at Cyncoed.

Orchard Welsh Women’s Premier League – 30 Sept results:

Caernarfon Town 2-4 Briton Ferry Llansawel
Cyncoed 0-2 Port Talbot Town

Walkley at the double for Town

Port Talbot Town’s impressive start to the new season continued as they went top with a 2-0 win away at Cyncoed.

Laura-May Walkley struck once in each half to give Hayley Williams’ side the three points, and a place at the top of the table going into an early season break next weekend.

Abergavenny lose leadership after defeat to Archers

Town are above Cardiff Met on goal difference, as the Archers ended Abergavenny’s winning start to the season with a 4-0 victory at Pen y Pound.

Two quick goals from Rebecca Mathias and Maddy Schupbach, making her league debut for Met, midway through the first half saw the visitors two up at the break. Naomi Clipson added a third eleven minutes into the second half, before Alice Griffiths finished things off with a penalty eight minutes from time.

First for Ferry

Briton Ferry produced a stirring comeback from two goals down to beat Caernarfon 4-2 at the Oval.

Alesha Donohue had put the Cofis in front in the fifth minute, and when Ffion Owen doubled the lead on 17’ it looked like the home side were heading for their first win of the season.

Ferry though had other ideas. Ella Roberts pulled one back late in the first half, and quick strikes midway through the second from Megan Kearne and Lucy Powell had them in front. Roberts struck again six minutes from time to seal the points and a first win of the season for the Reds.

Big first-half show by Bluebirds

Cardiff City FC kept up the pressure on the top two with victory over Rhyl.

The Bluebirds were 4-0 victors on the road, with all four goals coming in the first half. Alana Murphy notched two to take her tally for the season to five, with Kelly Bourne and Catherine Walsh the other scorers.

Swans hit six

Swansea also have the leading pair in their sights as they also bagged four in the first half, going on to out six past Llandudno at Llandarcy.

The home side were two up inside the opening six minutes, Katie Hosford and Stacey John-Davies with the early strikes. Jodie Passmore converted from the penalty spot on the half hour, and Emma Beynon’s goal five minutes later saw them go into the break with a comfortable lead.

Passmore and Beynon doubled their respective tallies for the day in the second half, as the Swans made it three wins on the bounce to move up into third.
