Cardiff City Women took the honours on the opening day of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League as they ran Caitlout 6-0 winners over newly promoted Briton Ferry Llansawel.
Catherine Walsh gave City the lead midway through the first half and Montana May added a second on the stroke of half time. After the break, Alana Murphy hit a double whilst Walsh netted twice more to complete her hat-trick and a perfect start to the new campaign for her side.
Rhyl Ladies meanwhile scored five times without reply against Caernarfon Town. Ashleigh Mills was another player to open up the season by bagging a hat-trick and she was joined on the scoresheet by Tonicha Dickens and Amy Webster.
Reigning Champions Cardiff Met Women were handed a tough opening fixture against League Cup holders Cyncoed Ladies and were made to work hard for their 3-1 victory. Cyncoed took a first half lead through Caitlin Bevan but two goals in a three minute spell around the hour mark turned matters around in Met's favour and they went on to seal the points when Rebecca Mathias added the third, fifteen minutes from time.
Port Talbot Town came away from Llandudno Ladies with a 4-2 win under their belts. Courteney Thomas gave Port Talbot a flying start by scoring twice inside the opening eleven minutes, before Fflur Williams pulled one back for the home side ahead of the break. Jessica Curran then netted a second half double to wrap up the win for Port Talbot, with Llandudno replying through Sofie Owen.
Swansea City and Abergavenny Women met in a clash between two of the regular challenging sides and, in a repeat of their opening day meeting two years ago, it was Abergavenny who went home with the points. On that occasion, the teams produced nine goals between them but this time around, Lauren Boyd scored the only goal of the game for Aber with five minutes remaining. A great start for Abergavenny and not the one that the Swans wanted but, if Ian Owen's side are looking for omens, they went on to win the league the last time that happened.
