Scorers: Griffin (2), Poppy (2).

In the semis Lynn took on Letchworth, winners of group B. Lynn were 2-0 and 3-1 up but it was 3-3 at half time. Lynn in the second half were determined to make the final and played well as a team, Imogen Senter making some great saves with the final scores 6-3.

Lynn took on Cottenham in the final with only 10 minutes to rest after the semi-final.

A tired Lynn took the lead playing well. With only two minutes of the first half left Cottenham netted. In the second half a determined Senter kept Lynn in the game with some super saves but the fresher Cottenham scored twice more.

In the final minute Griffin, who never gave up, netted.
