Leaders win big in Cyncoed derby

Swans leapfrog Abergavenny with win while Cardiff and Port Talbot claim 3-1 wins

Cardiff Met extended their lead at the top of the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League, and kept their unbeaten season going, with an emphatic 8-0 victory in the derby against neighbours Cyncoed.

Two goals in two minutes early on from Liv Thompson and Madison Schupbach got the visitors off to the perfect start. The pair then scored the next two, Schupbach slotting home in the third minute of first half stoppage time and Thompson scoring in the first minute of the second half with a low drive.

Stacey Ayling's looping volley from 30 yards extended the lead on the hour mark, before Chloe Tilley and Lauren Townsend both got in on the scoring to make it six and seven respectively.

There was still time for Schupbach to get her third, and Met's eighth, after a good move freed her up to tap home into an empty net.

Met's lead at the top was extended to eight points as second-placed Abergavenny lost 2-0 at home to Swansea City.

Shaunna Jenkins put the Swans in front in the second minute, converting from Sophie Hancocks' corner. The home side had Gabi Hughes sent off on 73' and the visitors finally put the game to bed with two minutes left, Katy Hosford getting the goal that saw the Swans leapfrog the hosts into second.

Cardiff City also went above Abergavenny with a 3-1 win at home to Briton Ferry.

The visitors took the lead on 17', Lucy Powell scoring from the penalty spot. Kanisha-Mae Underdown levelled for the home side seven minutes later, charging through one-on-one to score.

Underdown headed in her's and City's second ten minutes after the break, and the Bluebirds got a third moments later, Danielle Broadhurst's chip sealing the points.

Port Talbot also won at home as they beat Llandudno 3-1.

Stacey Treadwell put the visitors in front on 19', but strikes from Sadie Bebb and Jessica Curran had Hayley Williams' side in front at the break.

Laura May Walkley's strike nine minutes from time rounded things off for Port, who stay in contention with the teams directly above them thanks to the win.
