In the second half it was a different story as the hosts scored three quick goals to take control of the match and to eventually run out 6-0 winners, so you see it was certainly a game of two halves. There was a joint player of the match and that went to Zara Millar and Zara Stanley who both had good games at the back.

The top two teams of Group G met at sunny Greenwood Park and it was a closely fought match between the STACY Girls Under 12's North and Harpenden Colts Girls Jets.

Also, Shea Fagan and Jacey Dyett both went close, but it was the visitors who snatched victory with just one goal in the second half to record a 1-0 victory.

The STACY Girls Under 10's Romans away in a Pink division fixture fought out a hard goalless draw at Berkhamsted Raiders Girls Galactic’s against a strong Berko team and despite a lack of goals it was still a veritable 0-0 thriller. The Romans Girls gave everything with some strong running with some selfless wing play from Rosie Sharman and Gabby D ‘Avella whilst there was some good defensive play from Orla Henry plus excellent midfield work from Izzy Marriott.

The Under 18's Central were at home to the Under 18's South in a Red division match and for a while it looked like Central were going to pick up their first win and points of the season when they led 1-0 with a goal from Callum Cornish with ten minutes to go but once again their luck ran out when no fit subs and tired legs saw South score an equaliser through Gideon Urhoma who then minutes later scored another to win the match 2-1 for South.
