Met move within one win of title

Archers can seal Championship with victory at Llandudno thanks to Caernarfon victory

Cardiff Met will be crowned Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League Champions with victory at Llandudno next week after their 12-0 win at home to Caernarfon Town.

Meanwhile Port Talbot rounded off their home campaign with a 5-0 win over Rhyl, and Cyncoed moved up into fourth with a 3-1 win at Caldicot.

Cardiff Met 12-0 Caernarfon Town

Met produced the biggest win of the season to move closer to sealing the title.

Kitty Wells fired them into a two goal lead within the first fifteen minutes, before Lucy Brown, Lauren Townsend and Steph Turner notched within eight minutes of each other to make it five at the break.

Naomi Clipston slotted home on 53' to open the second half scoring, with captain Tija Richardson adding a seventh two minutes later. Stacey Ailing got her first on 65' to make it eight, before turning assist provider for Jas Simpson to score on 67' and 73'.

Simpson completed a nineteen minute hat-trick on 86', before Ailing popped up to round off the scoring to take Met eight points clear of Swansea.

Caldicot Town 1-3 Cyncoed

Caldicot came close to pulling off a league double against Cyncoed, before a second half comeback from the Mighty Oaks sent the visitors fourth.

Kelly Phelps' goal had put the home side in front at the break, but second half goals from Kirstie Pervin-Davies and two from Grace Horrell saw the visitors leave with the points.

Port Talbot Town 5-0 Rhyl

Having met three times already this season, once in the league and also in both the FAW Women's and WPWL League Cups, Port Talbot and Rhyl are pretty familiar with each other.

Those other three games were all won by the odd goal, but Town signed off their final home fixture of the season in style by equalling their biggest win of the season.

Laura May Walkley got Town off to a dream start in the second minute, finding space in behind the Lilywhites' defence to slot home.

Walkley turned provider on 17', playing a ball through for Coryn Sexton to find the bottom corner to double the lead.

Walkley doubled her tally just after the half hour, good work from Courtney Thomas finding her in space before she rounded Sam Mitchell to score.

Mitchell stopped it being four at the break as she saved Terri Beddows' penalty on 38', after Walkley had been brought down in the box.

Thomas made it four on 54', reacting quickest to a loose ball in the box before shimmying through a couple of defenders to make space for the shot, before Beddows added a fifth four minutes from time, heading home a Stratton corner to cap an excellent afternoon for the home side.
