Whilst the FAW Women‘s Cup Final took most of the attention over the weekend, there was plenty of significant action in the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League with the three challengers for the runners-up spot all in action.
Port Talbot Town played host to Cardiff City Women and it was City who kept themselves in second place with a 1-0 victory. Alana Murphy scored the only goal of the game, two minutes before half time, to give City three valuable points and end Port Talbot's hopes of finishing in the top two.
This means that Swansea City are now the only rivals to Cardiff City and they remain two points behind, with a game in hand, after scoring seven times without reply past Briton Ferry Llansawel. The away side had celebrated their first league victory of the season seven days earlier but found themselves three down inside the opening 23 minutes, courtesy of a hat-trick from Stacey John-Davis. Nieve Jenkins added a fourth two minutes later, with Jodie Passmore and Emma Beynon adding further goals before half time. Beynon rounded off the scoring for the Swans with the final goal midway through the second half.
Cardiff City are not in action this coming Sunday, meaning that Swansea City can overtake them if they beat Cyncoed Ladies. Meanwhile at the other end of the table, Rhyl Ladies play host to Briton Ferry Llansawel and will need to win to stand any chance of finishing off the bottom of the table.
Aberystwyth Town have taken themselves to the brink of the Welsh Women's League title after beating Splott Albion 2-1. Naomi Evans and Tania Wylde scored the goals to leave Aber requiring just two more points to put themselves out of reach and they will be crowned as Champions this coming Sunday if they win against Cascade Youth Club.
Barry Town Utd are now the only team which can still catch them, keeping their hopes alive by winning 5-3 away to Llangyfelach. Caldicot Town meanwhile went down 3-2 to Cascade Youth Club and may well have to settle for third place. Meanwhile at the other end of the table, it was a good day for both Dafen Welfare and Penybont as they moved away from the bottom two places with away wins against Merthyr Town (4-1) and Rhos (3-2) respectively.
