This was Radlett's longest trip of the season in Division Three of the Women's Southern League and the prospect of facing a Portsmouth team containing a number of county players was, to say the least, daunting.
Strong winds made conditions difficult but Radlett stuck to the task with Arrol leading from the front scoring 35 in Radlett's total of 82. Solid support came from Michele Verroken and Laura Lambert.

Haria had three wickets from her six overs and the next four balls went down in Radlett history. The hat trick was completed and then the fourth victim taken to leave Portsmouth sunk and Radlett victorious by 18 runs.
