Welsh Premier Women's League Champions Cardiff City FC were given a scare as they began their defence of the title with a 3-2 win away to Newcastle Emlyn.
Erin Murray had given City a twelfth minute lead but goals either side of half time from Stacey John gave Newcastle Emlyn hopes of a shock victory over the title winners. However Shanelle Edwards restored parity midway through the second half and Murray grabbed the winning goal for City with three minutes left on the clock.
Cardiff Met Ladies' quest to win back the title they won two seasons ago also began with a victory, but they too needed to come from behind to win 2-1 at Aberystwyth Town. Lowri Walker ensured that Aber went into the break with a lead but two goals in a four-minute spell from Emily Allen early in the second half saw the points go the way of the students.
In a very tightly contested opening day, it is Llandudno Junction who recorded the result which sees them as the early leaders of the fledgling table. Jordanne Greenough gave them a third minute lead at Caernarfon Town who hit back through Aisla Orlik, but Greenough notched her second to give them the lead at half time. Sophie Owen increased Llandudno's lead and Greenough completed her hat-trick, but Orlik and Katie Williams brought Caernarfon back into the game on the hour mark. Greenough netted a fourth and Orlik replied for her own hat-trick goal but it was in a losing cause, Katie Bowe wrapping up a 6-4 win for Llandudno with the final goal, four minutes from time.
Newly promoted PILCS got off to a good start with a 4-2 victory at Northop Hall. Katrina French gave them the lead on the quarter hour with Anne Marie Jones replying shortly afterwards, but Fiona Dodge put the newcomers back in front by the interval. French scored her second early in the second half and although Louise Clark reduced the arrears for the home side, Ceri Hudson made the game safe for PILCS with the fourth goal.
Llanidloes pulled off one the best results of the opening day, a 2-1 success at Wrexham. The home side took the lead through Ash Hayes midway through the first half but after the break, Llanidloes took the points with strikes in the opening ten minutes of the second half from Gemma Lloyd and Kay Smith.
The honours were shared in the local derby between Swansea City and Port Talbot Town who battled out a 1-1 draw. The Swans led for most of the game via an eighth minute strike from Courtney Thomas but with nine minutes remaining, Port Talbot earned themselves a point when Lindsey Morgan scored the equaliser.
