Swansea City went top of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League on Saturday, Cardiff Met regained the leadership on Sunday.

Cyncoed 0-3 Swansea City
Abergavenny 0-4 Cardiff Met
Briston Ferry Llansawel 1-0 Aberystwyth Town
Port Talbot Town 6-0 Cascade

Swansea City had gone back to the top of the table with Saturday’s 3-0 win at Cyncoed. Ellie Lake opened the scoring after her shot took a deflection off Ellie Gunney on its way in. Emma Beynon doubled the lead early in the second half from her in-swinging cross, Jess Williams adding the third with a late looping free kick.

Cardiff Met won 4-0 at Abergavenny on Sunday, to retake the leadership on goal-difference but from one game more. Chloe O’Connor’s first-half effort was added to by a quick double before the hour mark from Emily Richards and Shannon Evans, with  Ellie Preece netting a late fourth.

Port Talbot Town scored twice in the first ten minutes on the way to hitting Cascade for six, in going level on points with third-placed Cardiff City FC. Bethan Lloyd got the opener, Courtenay Thomas struck twice by the break and in the last five minutes, there was one each for Jodie Passmore, Lauren Amor and Laura-May Walkley.

Briton Ferry Llansawel edged Aberystwyth Town 1-0, thanks to  Sophie Topper’s goal two minutes from the interval, which saw the home side leapfrog their visitors into seventh place.
