The top of the table clash on Wednesday night ended with honours even as Cardiff Met Women and Swansea City fought out a goalless draw which means that the teams are level on points at the top of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League.
Both sides had opportunities in a well fought clash but the biggest moment of the match came in the 31st minute, when Met goalkeeper Annabel Sweeney dived to her right to save a penalty from Swans striker Chloe Chivers.
Swansea are likely to be the happier side with the result as they still possess a game in hand on their rivals.
Three days earlier, Cardiff Met had reclaimed the leadership on goal difference by beating Cyncoed Ladies 4-1. The Archers took an eleventh minute lead through Erin Murray, which they took into half time, with Lauren Townsend making it two from the penalty spot just ahead of the hour mark. Murray then added two quickfire goals to complete a hat-trick, before Rhianne Oakley scored a consolation for the Mighty Oaks.
Cardiff City Women's form continues to improve and they moved back into third place with a 2-0 victory away to Aberystwyth Town. Zoe Atkins settled matters for the Bluebirds by scoring both goals during the second half.
City followed this up on Wednesday by running out 4-1 winners over Cascade Youth Club, which takes them to within six points of the top two. Phoebie Poole gave City a second minute lead which was doubled on the half hour by Zoe Atkins, Abbie Davies reducing the arrears for Cascade on the stroke of half time. After the break, Atkins maintained her excellent recent form in front of goal by scoring her second and substitute Danielle Green headed in the final goal with sixteen minutes remaining.
The result puts City three points in front of Port Talbot Town who kept their own top three hopes alive by defeating Abergavenny Women 2-0 on Sunday. The visitors had gone into the game occupying third place but found themselves a goal behind after five minutes, Laura May Walkley putting Port Talbot in front and they secured the points late on in the second half thanks to Terri Beddows.
The sides in the bottom two places meanwhile met each other and the spoils were shared as Cascade Youth Club and Briton Ferry Llansawel finished level at 1-1. Both goals were scored in a five minute spell just after the half hour with Briton Ferry - who remain one point ahead - taking the lead through Alexie Clayton and Abbie Davies equalising for Cascade.
