Cardiff Met Ladies opened up the Welsh Premier Women's League title race with a 1-0 victory over league leaders Cardiff City FC in their top of the table clash on Sunday.
A sixth minute penalty from Emily Allen turned out to be the only goal of the game and gave the reigning Champions a vital result which sees them halve the deficit on previously unbeaten City to three points, with a game in hand.
Wrexham are now a further five points adrift in third place after a late equaliser from Llanidloes pegged them back to a 3-3 draw. Kate Thomas gave Llanidloes a tenth minute lead but two goals from Chloe Foster sent the home in front at the interval, before Steph Hugheson levelled matters early in the second half. Syd Hinchcliffe restored Wrexham's lead just after the hour mark but with seven minutes left, Gemma Lloyd struck to earn Llanidloes a share of the spoils.
Port Talbot Town meanwhile went back above Llanidloes into fourth place on goal difference after they defeated Newcastle Emlyn 2-1. An own goal from Caroline Cooper and a Sian Scannell goal put Port Talbot two ahead at the break and although Cooper replied at the right end ten minutes after the restart, Port Talbot held on to get themselves back to winning ways.
Swansea City are back in the top half of the table following their 4-1 victory over Northop Hall, putting a halt to their opponents' recent winning run. Northop did lead at half time through an Ashleigh Hayes goal but after the break, the Swans turned the game around with Sarah Adams scoring a hat-trick and Lindsay Morgan joining her on the scoresheet late on.
The season probably can't end quickly enough for Caerphilly Castle who found themselves on the receiving end of another heavy defeat, this time at the hands of Aberystwyth Town. Amy Jenkins led the goal spree for Aber by netting nine times and captain Ffiona Evans added a further five. Nia Jones weighed in with a four-goal haul while Gemma Kay, Mel Davies and Tania Wylde each contributed doubles and the tally was rounded off by Sam Gaunt and Kelly Thomas.
Caernarfon Town made it three wins on the trot when beating Llandudno Junction 6-1. After Kim Broadbent had given them an early lead, Shan Jones celebrated her call up to the Wales squad for the Algarve Cup by netting five times, with Jenny Davies grabbing a consolation for Llandudno.
