Aberystwyth Town 1-3 Port Talbot Town
Cardiff Met 4-2 Abergavenny
Cascade 0-2 Cardiff City FC
Swansea City 6-0 Cyncoed

Swansea City were made to wait until a minute before the break to open the scoring against Cyncoed, adding five goals in the second half to ensure they stayed two points clear at the top. Laura Davies made the breakthrough, with a Tija Richardson brace added to by a Caitlin Meadows own-goal and one apiece in the final couple of minutes from Chloe Chivers and Emma Benyon.

Cardiff Met beat Abergavenny 4-2 to keep up the pressure on the Swans, although from a game more. Lucy Finch, Shannon Evans, Sophie Hancocks and Emily Richards gave the Archers a 4-0 lead, with Lyndsey Davies and Amy Williams then pulling goals back for the visitors.

Cardiff City FC won 2-0 at Cascade to go within goal-difference behind third-placed Abergavenny. Phoebie Poole’s  18th-minute goal was all there was between the sides until Catherine Walsh converted a penalty midway through the second half.

Port Talbot Town stayed level on points with the Bluebirds, having come from behind to win 3-1 at Aberystwyth Town. Libby Isaac put Aber in front early in the second half, only for Lauren Amor and Rachel Ball to turn the game around within ten minutes, before Courtenay Thomas added a late third.
