In the women's competition, Saints Red beat Saints Black 19-3, finishing via the run rule.

Maddie Roddick, Chase McFerran-Shepherd, Emms and Ashton Reeves played up from the junior ranks for Black.
Red had the double header and faced off against an energised Eagles outfit. Belinda Mcferran was out of the circle for Red and Eliesha Gardner steadied the ship for Eagles who were far too strong with all players contributing offensively and defensively.

Markus Harris, Dylan Bayles, James North and Bradley Bell all did their bit with a solid batting performance for Saints, as Matt Wareham, Troy O'konnah and Matt Tatnell were handy with the bats and scored for Eagles.
