Dyffryn Ladies 18-29 Penygroes Primos
(2-7; 6-17; 12-23; 18-29)
Five wins out of five for leaders Primos, but they were given a cracking battle in the second half by Dyffryn Ladies.
At halfway, Primos were in command at 17-6 ahead, but the third and fourth quarters both ended 6-6.
If they keep up their form of the second half, that elusive first victory will surely not be far away for Dyffryn.
Players: Dyffryn – Elin Thomas; Primos – Cerys Jones
Umpires: Dyffryn – Elin Thomas; Primos – Delyth Pyrs
Bethesda 17-33 Walis Bryncoch
(4-9; 8-19; 13-26; 17-33)

They won every quarter against Bethesda, although taking the second 10-4 laid the foundations for comfortable success.

Umpires: Bethesda – Kirsty Jones; Bryncoch – Fflur Thomas
Holyhead 15-31 Tim o Walis
(2-5; 7-12; 10-19; 15-31)
Good all-round show from the Walis, who built on their lead in every quarter.
Still no win for Holyhead, but it will come.

Wariars Walis 28-24 Pwllheli Pumas
(4-5; 12-11; 19-17; 28-24)
How about this one as a contender for game of the week?
Pumas took the first 5-4, Wariars the second and third 8-6 and 7-6 respectively, and it was just 19-17 to the Walis side ahead of the curtain-closer.
It could have gone either way, but Wariars edged it 9-7 and secured the points.
Players: Wariars – Ela Haf; Pumas – Taylor Arnold
Umpires: Wariars – Ela Haf; Pumas – Melanie Jones
Blaenau Ffestiniog 14-18 Dreigiau Brynrefs Arfon
(5-5; 7-9; 10-15; 14-18)
So good to see Blaenau Ffestiniog in the league, and they gave Dreigiau a real run for their money before the Arfon side eventually held onto their 100% record with a four-goal victory,
The third quarter was most vital for the winners as they took it 6-3 to enjoy a five-goal advantage ahead of the final act.
Blaenau showed their mettle by winning that last section 4-3, however, a great effort from the Quarryfemmes.
Players: Blaenau – Mel Roberts; Dreigiau – Rebecca Owen
Umpires: Blaenau – Mel Roberts; Dreigiau – Elsi Glyn
