Swansea City celebrated winning the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League title in style with a 5-0 victory over Cyncoed Ladies on the final day of the season.
The Swans had been confirmed as Champions seven days earlier and faced a potentially difficult game against a Cyncoed side which has claimed its highest ever final position this season but with the pressure off, Swansea raced into a fifth minute lead through Sophie Hancock and Stacey Webber added a second just after the quarter hour. Stacey John further extended their lead shortly before half time and after the break, Katie Davies and Jodie Passmore joined them on the scoresheet to round off a memorable season for Swansea, who lifted the league trophy for the first time since 2010-11.
Cardiff Met Ladies have been the dominant force during this time but on this occasion, they have to settle for the runners-up spot. Having clinched second place in midweek with a 3-2 victory over local rivals Cardiff City FC, Met took on Port Talbot Town in their final match of the season and it was Port Talbot who took a first half with a goal from Victoria Stratton. Lowri Savage equalised five minutes after the interval but neither side could find a winner from this point, earning Port Talbot one of their most notable results of the season.
Cardiff City picked themselves up from their midweek defeat to record a 5-1 victory over Rhyl Ladies, a result which means they will finish in the top three. Shannon Evans' early strike for City was quickly cancelled out by Ashley Mills, but Danielle Green put the home side back in front and Evans netted her second leading up to half time. In the second half, Green found the net on two more occasions to complete her hat-trick and clinch third place for her side.
Abergavenny Women had led the table for the first half of the season but could not quite maintain their momentum and end up in fourth place after their final match ended in a 4-2 reverse at Llandudno Ladies. Fflur Williams and Rosie Hughes ensured that Llandudno led by two goals at the break and in the second half, Hughes netted her second and Sofie Owen also got on the scoresheet to round off a good win for the North Wales side, Lyndsey Davies pulling back two goals late on for Abergavenny.
