Cardiff Met Women are the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League Champions for the sixth time in eight years following their goalless draw with Swansea City on Sunday.
The Archers went into the game requiring a point to be sure of clinching the title against the Swans, who were the last remaining team still able to catch them. Despite a strong first half in particular, Swansea could not make a breakthrough and although their eleven match winning run in the league had come to an end, Cardiff Met celebrations began in earnest once the final whistle sounded.
The race is now on for second place and it is being led by Cardiff City Women after they won 2-0 away to local rivals Cyncoed Ladies. Both goals came fairly early in the game, Lisa Bird giving City a twelfth minute lead and Catherine Walsh added the second, midway through the first half.
Abergavenny Women were left frustrated in their own quest for the runners-up spot as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Rhyl Ladies. Abigail Powell put Abergavenny in front five minutes before half time but the Lilywhites battled back after the break and earned themselves a share of the spoils when Rachael Nattrass equalised, twenty minutes from time.
Briton Ferry Llansawel doubled their points tally for the season but it was nearly a lot better for them in their 3-3 draw with Llandudno Ladies. Lucy Powell gave Ferry a third minute lead from the penalty spot, which was cancelled out on the half hour by Elsie Davies, and Llandudno then went ahead early in the second half, thanks to Marie Gibbard. Ferry hit back strongly and a brace of goals in a five minute spell from Megan Kearle put them in a good position for their first league win of the season but Llandudno were to have the final say and Anna Jones ensured they went home with a point when she scored with nine minutes remaining.
