Cardiff Met Ladies staged a late fightback to stay on course to win back the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League title with a narrow 3-2 victory over Cardiff City FC.
Erin Murray gave Met the lead after six minutes, with Alana Murphy ensuring that City were on level terms at the break. City then went in front when Kanisha Underdown scored midway through the second half, with Rebecca Mathias equalising six minutes from time and a late strike from Murray completed the comeback and gave Met a result which keeps them five points clear at the top of the table.
Swansea City remain on Met's heels in second place following their 4-0 win against Llandudno Ladies. Katie Davies put the Swans in front on eight minutes but it wasn't until after the interval that they got the goals which made the points safe. A Jemila Bukari own goal doubled Swansea's advantage and Kelly Newcombe quickly added a third, with Stacey John-Davis rounding off the scoring late on.
Abergavenny Women meanwhile kept up their recent good form and consolidated themselves in third by beating Rhyl Ladies 7-3. Aber got off to a flying start with a Lyndsey Davies double and Laura Davies goal inside the opening ten minutes, with Kate Jeremiah also getting on the scoresheet shortly afterwards. Lyndsey Davies completed her hat-trick just before half time, with Emily Jones pulling one back from the penalty spot. Lyndsey Davies went on to bag herself a four-goal haul and after Rachel Lloyd and Rachel Nattrass had reduced the arrears for Rhyl, Jeremiah scored Aber's final goal with ten minutes remaining.
The two teams at the foot of the table met each other in a crucial clash and it was Caldicot Town who emerged as 3-1 winners over Caernarfon Town. Catrin Thomas did give Caernarfon a first half lead but a goal in each half from Naomi Cook, plus a strike from Emily Bayliss, earned Caldicot a win which takes them off the bottom of the table at the expense of their opponents.
