The school made team changes throughout and they drew the second half despite Issy Wilson-North (08-13 G) defending superbly. OWBA won 23-13 The OWBA's match against the U16s was a closer contest with neither team managing to take more than a 2 goal advantage until the end.

Both teams struggled to find the net initially then Beccy Straker (09-12 B) and Louisa Keech (98-13 C) started to get their eye in to ensure they were in front at half time.

The U16s team work was excellent and they ground the OWBA down. Many changes were made to both teams to try to find the best combinations and Alice Jellard (07-14 C) worked hard in both the attacking and defending circle.
