Cardiff Met Ladies continue to lead the way in the Shared Access Welsh Premier Women's League after scoring six times without reply against Port Talbot Town.
Ellie Sargent put the students ahead after nine minutes and Joni Warner quickly added a second, before Sargent went on to complete a hat-trick ahead of half time. After the break, Emily Allen netted twice to seal Cardiff Met's seventh straight win and preserve their lead of two points at the top of the table.
Cardiff City FC remain hot on their heels in second place but needed to get over an early scare before running out 7-2 winners over Llandudno Junction. Danielle Broadhurst did give City an early lead but Llandudno hit back and goals from Aimee Todd and Sofie Owen ensured they were in front by the quarter hour mark. Broadhurst levelled matters again with her second and then strikes in quick succession from Sadie Harry, Danielle Green and Emily Jellings put City in control by half time. Green added two more in the second half to give herself a hat-trick and round off the win for the reigning Champions.
Third placed PILCS made it six wins out of six as they defeated Llanidloes 9-2. Lyndsey Davies opened the scoring and Amy Thrupp then scored twice, before Lauren Price netted either side of the interval. Midway through the second half, Davies found the net three times during a four minute spell for a four-goal haul overall and after Jemma Lloyd had pulled a goal back, Kate Jeremiah added a ninth for PILCS. Llanidloes had the final say, Julia Hyndman grabbing a late consolation, but PILCS remain well in contention alongside the two Cardiff sides.
The next two teams in the table met each other and the honours were shared as Swansea City and Newcastle Emlyn battled out a 1-1 draw. Stacey John gave Newcastle Emlyn the lead seven minutes before half time, with the Swans battling back to earn themselves a point when Lindsay Morgan equalised on the hour mark.
Wrexham picked up their first league victory of the season, 4-0 over Aberystwyth Town to repeat their win in the FAW Women's Cup seven days earlier. All of the goals came in the opening quarter of the match, Amber Bailey putting them in front in the first minute and Ashleigh Hayes added a quickfire double, with Jade Davies netting the fourth goal.
The two teams at the foot of the table met in a vital clash and it was Caernarfon Town who broke their duck on the day with a 5-1 win against Northop Hall. Katie Williams gave the Cofis a 32nd minute lead which was increased by Anna Jones just before half time. Ffion Roberts made it three in the opening minute of the second half before completing her brace and although Anne Jones reduced the arrears for Northop, Anna Jones wrapped up the win for Caernarfon with the final goal, eight minutes from time.
