Cardiff City FC maintained their nine point lead at the top of the Welsh Premier Women's League with a 3-1 victory over Northop Hall.
The resignation of Caerphilly Castle during the week had forced a re-calculation of the table and this had seen City's advantage extended. They looked to capitalise on Sunday and took the lead midway through the first half with a goal from Shanelle Edwards. Kelly Bourne extended their lead early in the second half and Catherine Walsh netted a third on the hour, before Louise Sharp scored a consolation for Northop with five minutes remaining.
City's two nearest rivals, Wrexham and Cardiff Met Ladies, met each other in the game of the day and it was the second placed university side who stepped up their title challenge with a 2-0 victory. After the first half ended goalless, Emily Allen gave Cardiff Met the lead within four minutes of the restart and Steph Turner wrapped up the win for the students with ten minutes remaining.
Cardiff Met therefore still trail City by nine points but still have three games in hand, whilst third placed Wrexham are now a further five points adrift.
Swansea City enhanced their chances of a top half finish as they ran out 4-0 winners away to Caernarfon Town. Ria Hughes gave the Swans a sixth minute lead and added a second before half time. Chloe Lewis put Swansea further ahead during the second half but the day belonged to Hughes and she completed her hat-trick, six minutes from time.
