Banbury counter attacked with Sadie Lapper and White once again going close. Banbury continued with great play constantly putting pressure on the opposition. The second goal came from good control and passing through the midfield, seeing a great run from White to set Lapper up putting Banbury 2 0 up.

Banbury began to build back into the game with Coombs going close from a short corner with a trademark drag flick.
