With Rowan Williams playing well for Signs and Siobhan Richards the game was keenly contested, particularly in the first quarters, but in the third period SSW moved 52-42 in font and went on to win by 59-45.

They moved into second place by virtue of a superior goal difference to OPG. OPG were up against Blackdown Ladies for whom Nicki Snell turned in another fine performance enabling the Ladies to still hold the lead at the end of the third quarter, by 43-40.
