The Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League returned to action following a two week break with a top of the table clash, which resulted in a change of leadership.
Swansea City have gone to the top of the table after beating previous leaders Cardiff City Women 2-0. Neither team had conceded a goal in the league going into the game, and after a goalless first half, the deadlock was broken when Katy Hosford gave Swansea the lead seven minutes after the restart. Stacey John-Davis secured the win for the Swans when she scored the second, nineteen minutes from time, to take her team three points clear at the top.
A win would have taken Port Talbot Town level on points with Cardiff but instead they were beaten 2-1 by Abergavenny Women, who notched up their first league win of the season. Courtney Thomas gave Port Talbot the lead shortly before half time but Abergavenny, who were playing only their second match in the league, levelled matters on the hour through Carys Bufton and Abi Powell went on to score the winning goal, with ten minutes remaining.
Briton Ferry Llansawel and Cyncoed Ladies each picked up their first point as they battled out a 2-2 draw. Ela Roberts and Sophie Topper twice put Briton Ferry ahead during the course of the game but on each occasion, the Mighty Oaks hit back and a brace of goals from Alison Witts earned them a share of the spoils.
One group match was played in the League Cup on Sunday, Cardiff Met Women running out 6-0 winners over Aberystwyth Town. Robyn Pinder and Sophie Hancocks ensured that the Archers were two goals ahead at half time and after the break, Lucy Finch increased their lead before Micaela Milavec, Erin Murray and Madison Schupbach rounded off the scoring.
