Cardiff Met Women played their first match since the break for the holidays and it turned out to be a very good day for them as they further strengthened their position at the top of the table.
The Archers ran out 5-0 winners over Rhyl Ladies to open up a lead of seven points over their nearest rivals. Lauren Townsend gave them the lead midway through the first half and Robyn Pinder added a second just ahead of half time. Madison Schupbach increased their advantage after the break and Naomi Clipston made it four, before Schupbach rounded off the scoring with her second goal, ten minutes from time.
Cardiff Met's position was further boosted by the news that Swansea City and Cardiff City Women had battled out a goalless draw. The Swans gave a debut to recent signing, American midfielder Lauren Smith, and went closest to scoring when Sarah Adams hit the post in first half injury time but neither side could make a breakthrough and therefore remain in third and fourth place respectively, with Abergavenny Women in second place.
A win would have taken Port Talbot Town level on points with Swansea and Cardiff but instead they were held to a 1-1 draw by Briton Ferry Llansawel, who registered their first point of the season as a result. Port Talbot looked to be on their way to victory when Laura May Walkley gave them the lead during the second half but as the game went into injury time, Renee Day grabbed an equaliser to give Briton Ferry a share of the spoils.
Cyncoed Ladies climbed above Llandudno Ladies after winning their meeting 2-1. Caitlin Bevan gave Cyncoed a first half lead which was cancelled out by Mari Gibbard ten minutes later, but Bevan's second goal in the opening minute of the second half turned out to be the decisive one as the Mighty Oaks picked up their third win of the season.
