Cardiff City FC narrowed the gap on Shared Access Welsh Premier Women's League leaders Cardiff Met Ladies to five points with a 3-0 victory away to Aberystwyth Town.
A stronger Cardiff squad dominated the first half, but it was an own goal from Michelle Charest in the sixth minute that put them on the scoresheet and Hattie Powell's 23rd minute strike put them two ahead going into the break. A more even second half saw chances from Aber's Lowri Walker and Ffiona Evans but it was Erin Murray that sealed the win for Cardiff late on.
PILCS meanwhile received a setback to their title hopes as they were held to a 3-3 draw by Newcastle Emlyn. Lyndsey Davies gave an early lead to PILCS which was cancelled out by Marie Tilly but Amy Thrupp restored their advantage going into half time. Stacey John levelled matters again early in the second half and after Thrupp put PILCS in front for a third time, Newcastle Emlyn hit back once again for a share of the spoils through Mari Griffiths.
Despite picking up an excellent result, Newcastle Emlyn - who have been hard to beat this season - slipped down a place in the table due to Port Talbot Town running out 6-3 winners over Caernarfon Town. Rachael Ball scored the only goal of the first half for Port Talbot who doubled their advantage after the break through Lauren Amor. Catherine Thomas pulled one back for the visitors before Claire Dayley and Lucy Edwards both bagged doubles to put Port Talbot in control. Caernarfon did not give up and made the scoreline more respectable as Katy Williams and Ceri Stanley both scored but they remain in the bottom two whilst Port Talbot are up to fifth.
Fast improving Wrexham inflicted only a second defeat of the season on Swansea City and are now just a single point behind the Swans in the table after beating them 3-2. Amber Bailey's fourteenth minute strike for Wrexham was cancelled out by Jodie Passmore with Ash Hayes restoring their advantage in the opening minute of the second half. Kelly Newcome looked to have salvaged a point for Swansea when she levelled matters but Hayes was to have the final say and she grabbed the winner with two minutes remaining.
