In the women’s competition the Redbacks took a 4-1 victory in their match against Phoenix Two390, BPR clipped the Blue Birds with a 4-2 win, Xtra was too much for the Hounddogs, winning 5-2 and Specialised Civil made an emphatic statement to the rest of the competition with an 11-nil thrashing of the RSL Roulettes.
