As you were as top four all victorious

Big wins for Met, Swansea, Port Talbot and Cardiff.

It is as you were at the top of the Orchard WPWL as the top four all won on Sunday.

League leaders Cardiff Met kept their ten-point lead at the top after a 4-1 victory over Abergavenny.

A brace apiece from Naomi Clipston and Madison Schupbach was enough to give Met their eleventh win of the season and fifteenth straight win in all competitions. Laura Davies replied for the visitors, who stay fifth after their fourth defeat of the season.

Port Talbot remain second after stretching their unbeaten run to five games with a 6-1 win at home to Cyncoed.

An own goal from Caitlin Williams put the home side ahead midway through the first half. Laura May Walkley doubled the lead just after the break and quick strikes from Jessica Denscombe and Courtenay Thomas around the hour mark made the home side’s lead comfortable.

Chelsea Herbert pulled one back for the Mighty Oaks with twenty minutes to play, but Walkley and Thomas struck again in the final six minutes to put the game to bed.

The returning Lisa Bird hit the ground running, as she got her third spell at Cardiff City underway with a seventeen-minute hat-trick as they beat Rhyl 5-0 at the Cardiff International Sports Campus.

Bird headed City in front on 12’ and got on the end of Lisa Owen’s through ball to double the lead, before completing her hat-trick on 29’ to send the home side into the break three up.

The Bluebirds had to wait until twelve minutes from time for the fourth, Catherine Walsh beating Amy Webster one-on-one, before Lucy McDonough rounded off the scoring on 81’.

Swansea meanwhile kept pace with Cardiff after their 4-0 win away at Llandudno.

Sophie Hancocks hit two goals in two minutes just before the break to put the visitors in front, both coming from close range. Kelly Adams added a third five minutes after the restart, while Jodie Passmore’s lob rounded things off late on for the Swans.
