Pennine Pumas were quick off the mark, scoring in the opening 10 minutes. However the Celtic Jaguars did not sit back, some spectacular play from Hodges dancing round the Puma midfield, driving towards goal lead to a well deserved penalty corner. This was neatly slotted away by Rhys Bradshaw to pull one back for his side in the third quarter. As the Jaguars tired in the final quarter, Pumas found form taking their lead to 4-1.

Saxon Tigers came out in full force as Winter opened the scoring a minute in, Saxon increased their lead and by half time they were leading 3-1. Cougars were not to be beaten however as they retaliated with force, pushing the Tigers defence to score two more goals. Tigers sealed the win with two goals in last quarter to finish a thrilling match 5-3.

First shot on target for Wessex Leopards and Petter made sure she converted it to give her side the early lead. However the Caledonian Cougars were straight on the counter with Eve Pearson striking the ball into the back of the goal. It was end to end but it was the Wessex Leopards who pulled it back in the dieing seconds to come away with a point drawing 4-4.

Saxon Tigers got on the score sheet early doors with just a few minutes between the two goals from Malzer and Homan. Pennine Pumas fought back but Scullion's single goal wasn’t enough as the Tigers took the win.
