The honours were shared in the Welsh Premier Women's League top of the table clash as Swansea City and Cardiff Met Ladies finished goalless.
The game was a keenly contested one with chances at both ends but neither side was able to make a breakthrough and the league's two remaining unbeaten records remain intact, with Met staying two points in front of the Swans.
Cardiff City FC are now just three points off the pace as they made up ground on the top two but only just, having edged out Rhyl & Prestatyn by the odd goal in seven. City led at half time through an Alice Broadley goal and looked to be well on the way to victory when Lisa Owen scored twice in a seven minute spell. Cassandra Thomas replied for the visitors, with Shannon Evans quickly restoring the three-goal advantage, before a late rally from Rhyl & Prestatyn saw Amy Webster and Rebecca Bannister pull goals back but Cardiff held on for the points.
PILCS make it four wins on the trot when they triumphed 5-2 away to Cyncoed Ladies. Alana Murphy gave them an early lead which was cancelled out by Carys Hill but after the break, Jassie Costa scored a ten minute hat-trick and Lyndsey Davies also got on the scoresheet for the visitors. Fern Burrage grabbed a late consolation for Cyncoed but free scoring PILCS continue to narrow the gap on the teams above them.
Port Talbot Town lifted themselves up into fifth place by scoring five times without reply away to Newcastle Emlyn. Vicky Stratton and Chelsea Harris ensured that Port Talbot were two goals ahead inside the opening quarter of an hour and Jess Curran added a third before half time. Sian Scannell put them further in front on the hour and Stratton rounded off the scoring with her second goal, three minutes from time.
Aberystwyth Town continue to improve and are in mid-table after beating MBi Llandudno 2-1. Hannah Miles gave them the lead from the penalty spot and Emily Thomas netted the second just after the half hour mark. Midway through the second half, Stacey Tradewell gave Llandudno hope when she reduced the arrears by scoring a penalty but Aber held on to record their second league win of the season.
After having drawn three of their opening four games, Cwmbran Celtic notched up their first victory of the season with a 4-1 success away to Wrexham. Cwmbran led at the break through a goal from Chloe Chivers, who strengthened their position by scoring a second shortly before the hour mark. Rhian Taylor further extended their lead and Chivers went on to complete her hat-trick, before Phoebe Davies replied for Wrexham late on.
