Southend & Benfleet 1st XI: 2 (Naomi Barker 2)
Kings & Alleyns 1st XI: 4
Southend & Benfleet lost 4-2 at home to Kings & Alleyns. The away side scored first from a penalty corner deflection. Naomi Barker evened the scoreline by half-time from a penalty corner into the bottom right corner. Kings & Alleyns scored again but were quickly matched by Naomi Barker’s second goal from a pass from Kirsty Durban. However the game ran away from S&B as Kings & Alleyns scored twice more. Great defending from Kerry Payton got her voted player of the match.
