Epsom vs Surbiton High
WON 3-0

A dominant first half by Epsom with great passing and leading. Two quick goals by Seren Callaghan (Hu) put the score at 2-0 in the first few minutes. There was a lot of running and tackling from the Surbiton girls. A quick breakaway from the back allowed Hannahli Foley-Outerial (Hu) to get some space and score in the last minute.

Epsom vs Queenswood
WON 1-0

A less fast game. The girls' marking in this game was not as good. Some great saves by Lucy Hughes kept Queenswood out. A goal by Olivia Diri (Hu) put Epsom in the lead and the team's marking was better by the end of the game to keep the opposition out.

Epsom vs NHEHS
WON 1-0

Due to some unpredictable English weather, the girls were up against temperatures above 20 degrees. They struggled to find energy and again did not mark or run back as they should have, making it more difficult for themselves. A great goal by Olivia Key (Hu) put the girls in the lead and straight into the semi finals.

Semi final
Epsom vs Kingston GS
WON 2-1

The semi final was a tough game against Kingston GS. An early goal by Seren Callaghan put Epsom in the lead. After some sugar and water the girls were back on track, full of energy and ready to win. Another great goal by Nell Everett (Wa) sealed the win with the end score 2-1.

Final
Epsom vs Surbiton High

The final was a tough fought game with plenty of great hockey involved. Some beautiful saves were made by by Lucy Hughes, and there was some outstanding marking by Bibi Watkins (Wa) and Katie Reid (Wa), hard work and determination by the midfield and strikers from Nell Everett, Hannahli Foley-Outerial, Olivia Diri, Olivia Key, Katie McNeil (Hu) and Seren Callaghan. A great performance with a result that perfectly reflects the girls' efforts.
