A right side pass from Kirsty Hayton gave Hannah Cartwright the opportunity to open the score sheet. Kendal continued with the pressure and Elsie on the left was able to capitalise to make the score 2-0. Dalston made a couple of breaks but these were defended well by Lucy and Gemma solid as ever at the back. Kendal broke again allowing Vicky Atkinson to sweep the ball in from her reverse stick. Dalston worked hard to break and were able to find their centre forward who was able to strike a goal home to make the score 3-1 at half time.

After the break Dalston came out strong and put the pressure on the Kendal defence. This resulted in a further goal making the score 3-2.
