Eight teams made it to the final group stages today, where they battled it out in 12 minute matches throughout the morning in which four teams to made it to the semi-finals, which were:

Millbank Vs Radyr and Dolau Vs Coryton

The semi-finals games were very closely matched. The girls kept up a ferocious pace throughout, not stopping until the final whistle blew. In the end only one goal decided who the winning teams would be…

2  Millbank   |  1  Radyr
