Haverfordwest County 2-0 Aberystwyth Town: The Bluebirds clinched their first won of the second phase after Aberystwyth had goalkeeper Oliver Basey sent off in the first half. Midfielder Jonathan Evans had to pull on the gloves after Basey, on loan from Birmingham City, brought down Martel De Angelo Taylor in the box and immediately denied the striker from the penalty spot. But Dan Hawkins headed the hosts ahead on the stroke of half-time before De Angelo Taylor netted his 12th of the season, despite County missing a host of chances.

Cardiff Met 0-1 Bala Town: Cardiff Met missed the chance to move up to fifth in the Cymru Premier as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Bala. After a goalless first half the visitors took the lead on 52 minutes through George Newell. The Archers could only muster one shot on target in the whole game, and Bala saw out the remainder of the game to close the gap on second-place Connah's Quay Nomads to six points.

Newtown 0-1 The New Saints: The New Saints continued their winning run, but were made to work for it away against Newtown on Saturday. The only goal of the game came just after the half hour mark, with Kieran Mills-Evans turning the ball into his own net to give the visitors the lead. Newtown's chances of finding a late equaliser were hampered when Matthew Jones was shown a straight red late on. And the Cymru Premier champions held on to seal all three points..

Penybont 5-0 Colwyn Bay: Penybont put an end to Colwyn Bay's two-game unbeaten run with a thumping win at Bryntirion Park. The game was in the balance at half-time, with Lewys Ware's strike the only goal before the break. But after Chris Venables' penalty and Tommy Creamer's second yellow card for the visitors, the floodgates opened. Penybont scored twice in the next five minutes, through Keyon Reffell and Kane Owen, before substitute Ioan Phillips added a fifth late on. Colwyn Bay remain rooted to the bottom of the Cymru Premier; Penybont stay eighth.

Pontypridd United 1-1 Barry Town United: Pontypridd move a point clear of the Cymru Premier bottom two as they earn a point at home against Barry. The hosts started the day level on points with 11th-placed Aberystwyth, and quickly went ahead against Barry when Owain Jones opened the scoring on five minutes. Will Richards levelled things up after half an hour. Barry have now drawn five straight games.
