Milton United 2-2 Penn Tylers Green
The clash of the day, featuring top versus second, somewhat unsurprisingly produced a draw as both sides maintained their unbeaten record. In a topsy-turvy game Sasha Smith put the visitors ahead before Holly Porter levelled the scores. Henna Hussain then gave Penn the lead again only for Katie Miller to secure a point for Milton. Penn stay second, three points adrift of Milton but with a game in hand.
Caversham United 0-5 Woodley United
A bad day at the office for The Goats as they were put to the sword by a rampant Woodley side in the Reading derby. Two from Gemma Sims and another from Charley Evans put Woodley three up at the break. May Hamblin then chipped in with two more in the second half. The result puts Woodley to within a point of Caversham with three games in hand in their neighbours.

Eversley & California P-P Long Crendon
Eversley's game, as with their men's team on Saturday, was a victim of the torrential downpours that also scuppered all of the Division One South games this weekend.
Kidlington 1-1 Carterton
Kidlington's blip continued as they were held to a home draw by bottom of the table Carterton. Courtney Sumner was back amongst the goals for The Greens whilst Holly Springate scored for the visitors. Congratulations to Carterton for getting their first point of the season. It's a shame they have a week off and can't use this result as an immediate springboard.

Woodley United v Kidlington
Fifth placed Woodley have taken all of their seven points so far on the road. Having said that, this is only their second home league game of the season. Kidlington, on the back of two league defeats, drew 1-1 with Carterton at the weekend and will be looking to re-capture their early season form which saw them top the table after their first four games.
