Passmore hits hat-trick as Swans score seven

Swansea City are now four points behind the leaders with five games to go each, after a big away win. Jodie Passmore opened the scoring from a Katie Davies cross and 3 minutes later returned the favour, with the help of Megan Franks.

Stacey John set up two goals before the break, a Passmore got her second and Kelly Newcombe also found the net.

Sophie Hancocks made it 5-0 early in the second half and then played in Ria Hughes to score, with Passmore completing her hat-trick midway through the half.

Abergavenny went third with a 5-2 victory over Port Talbot Town, Gabi Hughes scoring 2 minutes into each half.

Port Talbot quickly replied to the second goal, Lyndsey Davies made it 3-1 but the visitors then got a second.

A late Kate Jeremiah double eventually sealed the win for the hosts.

Bluebirds bag six

Cardiff City FC climbed to fourth after sending Caldicot Town to a 6-1 defeat. Lucy McDonough got the first and Kanisha Underdown converted a penalty for a 2-0 lead after half an hour.

It was into the last third before Alana Murphy made it 3-0 and five minutes later Alicia Davies further extended the advantage.

Murphy and Kelly Bourne added late goals and Ashley Harris got a consolation for Caldicot.

Gibbard off the mark 

Llandudno went four points ahead of Rhyl following a 3-0 result over them, in which Mari Gibbard bagged her first two league goals.
