A Jade Burden strike five minutes from time was enough to secure a 4-3 win over Gymnasium at Tromode and register their first victory in the calendar year. The Whites led 2-1 at the break, however, there was an inspired come-back from the Cronkbourne side, levelling matters to make it 3-3. Burden was joined on the score-sheet along with a Kiera Morgan brace and an own goal, Lauren Miller and Eleanor Gawne (pen) on target for Gymnasium. The match also saw a Gawne penalty saved by goalkeeper Elizabeth Stanley.

Peel continued their impressive form with a 9-1 over Douglas Royal.
