They won convincingly against Welbeck College (7-0) and Loughborough (2-0). It was a closely contested match against local rivals Uppingham, but Oakham beat them on the final whistle with a Penalty corner. The final was against Loughborough and the girls’ attacking style did not disappoint resulting in another win (2-0).
