Swansea City staged a late fightback in order to claim a vital 4-3 win over Cardiff City FC and preserve their six point lead at the top of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League.
Cardiff got off to a great start and led by two goals inside the opening twenty minutes, Shannon Evans giving them an early lead before going on to add her second. Katy Hosford then brought the Swans back into the game by pulling one back on the stroke of half time. Hannah Daley restored the two-goal advantage early in the second half and although Jodie Passmore replied quickly, Cardiff looked to be holding out for a result which would keep their own title hopes alive. However with two minutes remaining, Hosford brought the scores level with her second goal of the game and deep into injury time, Katie Davies completed the comeback by grabbing a late winner which may prove to be a vital strike when results are assessed at the end of the season.
Cardiff Met Ladies made sure of maintaining the gap in second place by running out 4-0 winners over Briton Ferry Llansawel. Jassie Vasconcelos opened the scoring midway through the first half and Chloe O'Connor added a second five minutes before half time. Lowri Savage scored a decisive third with eleven minutes remaining and O'Connor crowned the win with her second goal late on.
Abergavenny Women are not giving up the fight in third place and they kept their hopes alive by beating Port Talbot Town 2-0. Both goals came in the last fifteen minutes, the prolific Lyndsey Davies breaking Port Talbot's resistance by giving them the lead and Lauren Boyd adding the second shortly afterwards.
The North Wales derby match between Rhyl Ladies and Llandudno Ladies ended with honours even as the sides shared a 1-1 draw. Llandudno took a first half lead through Rosie Hughes and they remained in front until second half injury time, when Amy Webster struck to earn Rhyl a valuable point.
