Cardiff Met Ladies maintained their three point lead at the top of the Welsh Premier Women's League with a 3-1 victory over previously unbeaten Llanidloes.
However the reigning Champions needed to come from behind after Gemma Lloyd had put Llanidloes into a 21st minute lead. Hannah Billingham equalised early in the second half and found the net again with eleven minutes left to put her side ahead for the first time. Adele Hooper sealed the points for the third time by scoring the third goal.
Cardiff City FC are now on their own in second place following their 11-1 win against Llandudno Junction. Danielle Broadhurst and Catherine Walsh each netted twice in the first half and although Hollie Farr pulled a goal back for Llandudno, Hattie Powell added a fifth just before half time. Emma Jones further extended their lead and Powell grabbed her second, before Broadhurst and Walsh completed their hat-tricks. A Claire Colville own goal and Amy Wathan rounded off the scoring for Cardiff who are three points off the pace but with two games in hand.
Wrexham are up into third after they defeated Port Talbot Town 5-1. Courtney Thomas did send Port Talbot into an early lead but Syd Hinchcliffe and Lyndsey Rodger, from the penalty spot, ensured that Wrexham were in front at the break. Hinchcliffe went on to hit a hat-trick by adding two further goals ahead of the hour mark and Lowri Edwards completed her side's tally.
A late strike gave Newcastle Emlyn a 1-0 win at Aberystwyth Town which takes them into the top half of the table. A tight local derby was settled with nine minutes remaining when Stacey John scored the only goal of the game.
Two of the teams in the bottom three met each other and it was Northop Hall who recorded a morale boosting 5-0 victory over Caernarfon Town, who are still seeking their first points. All of the goals came in the second half, Laura Pennington giving Northop the lead on the hour before going on to complete a fifteen minute hat-trick, with Ashleigh Foster also finding the net during that spell. Ashleigh Hayes scored the fifth and final goal with two minutes remaining.
The remaining match between Swansea City and Caerphilly Castle was postponed.
