The 9ths continued their winning run with a 9-3 victory against Welwyn Garden City and there was draws for the Praetorians and Centurions against Hampstead & Westminster (2-2) and Chelmsford (3-3).
In the ladies’ section the 2nds were unlucky to lose 1-0 in a close game away to Bedford but there was better news for the 3rds who had a convincing 5-1 against West Herts.
Jo Moxham (two), Vicky Fallan (two) and Sarah Mobbs all scored for the Tangerines.
Helen Anton’s goal for the Boadiceas gave them a 1-0 win against Leighton Buzzard.
