Stevenage took the lead through an unfortunate own goal, and doubled their advantage soon after from a short corner. Chiltern battled on and grabbed a goal back through Chelsea Wright, but Stevenage added a third.

The hosts were unlucky not to score more with Vicky Spencer going close and Hilary Ward hitting the post, although some brilliant defending kept the deficit at 3-1, with star performer Kate Binns.

In Division Five, the IIIs showed signs of real progress as, after being thrashed 5-0 at Bedford IVs in November, they drew their return fixture 2-2.
