The last round of matches before the Christmas and New Year break were played on Sunday, and have left Cardiff Met Women in a strong position at the top of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League.
Met travelled north to take on Rhyl Ladies and won 5-2 to extend their lead at the top of the table to six points. Madison Schupbach gave them the lead after three minutes and Olivia Thompson quickly added a second, before Caroline Gardner pulled one back for the home side just after the half hour. Robyn Pinder made it three for the Archers, early in the second half, with Rhyl hitting back once again five minutes later through Laura Williams. Schupbach increased the lead from the penalty spot and she completed her hat-trick with ten minutes remaining, to leave Met in a very strong position before the league resumes again next month.
With Abergavenny Women not having a game, second place was on offer for the winners of the match between Cardiff City Women and Swansea City, and it was the Swans who triumphed 2-0. Sophie Hancocks put them in front in the ninth minute and Emma Beynon clinched the points with the second goal, six minutes from time.
Port Talbot Town go into the break in fourth place after running out 5-0 winners over Briton Ferry Llansawel. Laura May Walkley opened the scoring midway throuhg the first half, with Lauren Amor adding a second five minutes later. Walkley netted her second after the hour and two late goals from Courtney Thomas and Jessica Denscombe crowned the win for Port Talbot.
There were plenty of goals on offer at Cyncoed Ladies and it was visitors Llandudno Ladies who went home with the points and a 5-3 victory. Fflur Williams netted twice inside the opening fourteen minutes to give Llandudno a flying start, with Caitlin Bevan pulling one back for the home side. Mari Gibbard then made it three and although Bevan scored a second just before half time, Gibbard restored the two-goal advantage going into the interval. Hayley Hoare renewed hopes for the Mighty Oaks early in the second half but with ten minutes to go, Kelsey Davies netted a decisive fifth to sew up a third win in four league matches for Llandudno.
