The final day of the Girls’ U16 Schools Championships saw Repton take the U16 title for the first time with a comfortable 4-1 victory over St. George’s. Hannah Davey and Esme Burge scored a brace apiece and with three of the goals coming inside 18 minutes the damage was already done before the half-time hooter sounded. In the third/fourth play-off GSAL clinched third place with a dramatic 6-5 victory on penalty strokes after the game finished 1-1 at full-time.

Pool C
Repton topped the table with three wins from three in Pool C. The Midlands side continued their strong form from yesterday with a 3-1 victory over Ardingly in the first pool game of the day to secure their place at the top of the table and set-up a final against Pool D toppers St George’s. Clifton finished second in the pool after recording a win, a draw and one loss over the two days of competition. Ardingly came close to clinching second place as they finished on the same points as Clifton, but were just nudged out on goal difference.
