Flamingos A kept their momentum at the head of the table when they met bottom of the table Complete Meats.
With Teresa Youens in fine form, they were on top from the start and ended the game comfortable winners at 50-22.
Bo-Peeps had hoped for at least a point from their game against mid table Visions, but it was not to be, although they came oh so close. With Jill Hall playing well for Visions, they opened with a 9-4 lead at quarter time. By halfway Bo-Peeps had matched them goal for goal in the second period and were still five goals behind at 12-17, thanks to some fine play from Faye Webb. The third period saw Visions reassert their authority and enter the final session 31-16 in front before ending winners 40-20, a result that saw Bo-Peeps miss a point by a single goal.
The final game saw Wasps up against mid-table Uplowman. It was Uplowman who started stronger, leading 7-5 at the end of the first period. By half way Wasps had moved 16-15 ahead before going 26-19 ahead in the third quarter and ending the game winners by 38-24. Claire Gresham had been the Wasps' star whilst Jules Heal caught the eye for Uplowman.
