Things remain the same at the top of the Welsh Premier Women's League after the two title challengers each recorded convincing away victories on Sunday.
Leaders Cardiff City FC preserved their six point advantage at the top by running out 4-0 winners away to Newcastle Emlyn. Catherine Walsh gave City an eleventh minute lead but it wasn't until after the interval that they wrapped up the points, Emily Jellings adding a second before Amy Wathan netted twice in a five minute spell.
Cardiff Met Ladies kept up the chase in second place, thanks to a 9-1 victory at Llandudno Junction. Steph Turner scored twice and Hannah Billingham joined her on the scoresheet to put the students in control at half time and although Aimee Todd reduced the arrears for the home side after the restart, Dana Hinton replied quickly before Turner completed her hat-trick just after the hour. Emily Allen and Emily Brown both found the net before Turner bagged her fourth and Billingham a second late on.
Third placed Wrexham were held to a 1-1 draw by Aberystwyth Town. Olivia Hull had given Wrexham the lead but four minutes later, Mel Davies netted an equaliser for Aber and the sides could not be separated in the second half.
Swansea City leapfrogged Port Talbot Town into fourth after beating them 1-0. Amy-Marie Evans settled matters in the Swans' favour with the only goal of the game, midway through the second half.
Llanidloes meanwhile kept their hopes of a top three finish alive by scoring seven without reply against Caernarfon Town. Katie Thomas put them in front in the opening minute with Elaine Green and Daisy Smith adding further goals, before Thomas scored her second on the stroke of half time. In the second half, Smith went on to net twice more to round off a hat-trick on the day, with Steph Hugheson also getting on the scoresheet.
