In the Girls U16 competition also at Aldersley, Surbiton took top spot in Pool A with a 100% record including a 5-0 win over nearest rivals Beeston who otherwise won all three games. Brooklands Poynton recovered from heavy defeats by the top two to take third place ahead of Old Loughts and Clifton Robinsons. Repton also had a 100% record in Pool B with Canterbury second thanks to three wins. Marlow and Ben Rhydding were level on four points. The Pool winners both ran out winners in the semis, Surbiton beating Canterbury 5-2 and Repton winning 5-1 against Beeston. In the final Surbiton raced into a three goal lead within five minutes with goals from Livy Wild, Freya Gladstone and Issy Carey. However Repton reduced the deficit to one by the break with Emily Schmedes and Imogen Hatton on target and two second half goals from Georgia Brown and a second for Schmedes gave them a 5-3 win.
