Southend and Benfleet 3rd XI - 0 Southend 2nd XI - 4
The 3s hosted top of the table Southend and so knew it would be a tough match. The visitors scored early on, and S&B tried to battle back but concede a penalty flick, which Southend put away making it 2-0. Before the break, a well worked short corner saw the away team go into the break 3-0 up.
In the second half, the 3s battled away against a strong, physical team. An improved performance saw Southend restricted to just one well executed goal and S&B showed how good a team they can be. They won several short corners but were unable to score from them. Lucy Stowe was voted player of the match.
