Bolton Ladies’ 1s – 1
Wilmslow Ladies’ 1s – 2

In the early stages of the game this looked a close match but eventually Di ‘Sniffer’ Law broke the deadlock.
This was followed by a goal from Becca Healy which brought the score to 2-0 at half time.
In the second half the Tangerines turned up the heat and the midfield combined well to overwhelm Knutsford with a further four goals, from Tracey Moir (2), Fi Campbell and Di Law.
