Calderdale 3 vs Chapeltown CNC
C3 were quick off the mark against a very physical Chapeltown, winning the first and only quarter by 8 goals to 7.
The opposition soon gained control in the second quarter forcing Calderdale into making basic errors, and the ruthless defence of Chapeltown dominated over Calderdale’s shooters.
Pia Rattigan, in defence, made a valiant effort earning her Player of the Match, but the accuracy of the Chapeltown shooters, who rarely missed, were a force to be reckoned with and there was no way back for Calder as Chapeltown forged ahead even further in the last quarter
Final score of 24-43.
Calderdale 4 vs Wakefield Phoenix 3

Phoenix did not let Calderdale have it all their own way and pulled it back in the 3rd quarter to take the lead by 3 goals.
