Cardiff Met Ladies have gone eight points clear at the top of the Shared Access Welsh Premier Women's League after beating second placed Cardiff City FC 7-0.
City did have a couple of chances to take the lead during the first half but it was Cardiff Met who took the lead on the stroke of half time through Ellie Curson. After the break, a sending off and injury made it tough for City, who were forced to finish the game with nine players, and the students capitalised ruthlessly despite their opponents not giving up in the torrential rain and strong wind. After Ellie Sargent had doubled their lead, Laura Walkley added two superb strikes and Chloe Tucker headed in the fifth from a corner. Abby Picton produced a neat finish before Walkley completed her hat-trick late on via a solo effort.
PILCS are back up to third but kept in touch with the leading sides by running out 4-0 winners away to Aberystwyth Town. Katrina French ensured that the 'Green Army' were ahead at the break and Ceri Hudson added a second early in the second half, before Lindsey Davies netted twice to round off the scoring.
Port Talbot Town meanwhile returned from Northop Hall with a 3-0 victory under their belts, condemning the home side to their tenth straight defeat. Laura Amor opened the scoring for Port Talbot and Jessica Curran extended their lead on the half hour, with Rachel Ball wrapping up the points with fifteen minutes remaining.
Wrexham continue to improve and will have their sights set on the top half of the table following their 4-2 success away to Caernarfon Town. Ashley Hayes scored the only goal of the first half for Wrexham and Emma Rowden netted the second, before a flurry of goals came in the last ten minutes. Katie Williams reduced the arrears for the home side with Hayes replying five minutes later, Sioned Jones again gave Caernarfon late hope but Hayes steadied any Wrexham nerves by completing her hat-trick in injury time.
The weather did play its part though and had the final say regarding the other two matches. Swansea City's match with Llanidloes was abandoned at half time due to the conditions with the scoreline goalless and the game between Newcastle Emlyn and Llandudno Junction fell victim to a waterlogged pitch.
