The two sides met this morning at the Briar Hall, Christ Church playing field, and Wills were very attacking from the opening whistle. They eventually found the breakthrough in the first half when the ball was played up the field just outside the box and Jones delivered one of the sweetest volleys one is likely to see at this level. Unfortunately for St Lawrence, they were unable to equalize thanks to good defending from Wills.

Four other games were played in that zone and Vauxhall Primary registered a 2-0 win over St Christopher compliments of Kishmar Ramsey who scored a penalty in the first half and returned in the second for another.
