The opening day of the Welsh Premier Women's League season produced three tight matches and only one winning team on the day.
That winning team was Abergavenny Women but only just, as they edged out last season's runners-up Swansea City by the odd goal in nine in a see-saw match. The prolific Lyndsey Davies was in top form from the start and scored a hat-trick inside the opening 27 minutes to put her side three goals ahead. Swansea fought back strongly with Jodie Passmore and Emma Beynon reducing the arrears before the break. The Swans completed the recovery when an own goal levelled the scores and then Beynon netted her second to put them ahead for the first time on the hour. Davies was not finished though and her fourth goal on the day made things all square once again and Kate Jeremiah scored what turned out to be the decisive goal which gave Abergavenny victory.
The match between Llandudno Ladies and Port Talbot Town also produced plenty of goals and a comeback with the sides battling out a 3-3 draw. This time it was Llandudno who stormed into a three-goal lead with Katie Bowe netting twice and Sofie Owen adding the third just before the half hour. After the break though, Port Talbot brought themselves back into the game through Kath Salter and further strikes from Lauren Amor and Vicky Stratton earned them a share of the spoils.
The honours were also even in the other game with Aberystwyth Town and Cyncoed Ladies finishing level at 1-1. Helen Evans opened the scoring for Aberystwyth after half an hour's play, before Cyncoed replied after the break via a Sian Evans own goal, which meant that the spoils were shared.
