Lamb Inn entertained South View and led 1-0 at half-time, the goal scored by Harry Rudge, an ex-South View player. The visitors didn't feel too dishearten at the break, having missed enough chances chances during the opening half to provide hope of a result. In fact, Ashley Roberts equalised early in the second half with a goal direct from his free kick. Alex Lee later came on from the substitute's bench and caused havoc up front for South View and got a deserved winning goal after making his own chance to score.

Eastrop Eagles took on Soldiers Return Reserves, with the home side taking the lead after just 15 minutes, which remained the score up to half-time. Then, almost from the restart they nailed a 2-0 lead, leaving Soldiers a mountain to climb. The visitors continued to maintain a closely-contested match and got their reward 12 minutes from end with a Josh Buckingham strike. Soldiers continued to press with two or three chances created in the last few minutes, but not enough to deflect the score from a 2-1 home win.
