After loosing five games in a row, Chipping Sodbury Ladies got back to winning ways against Cheddar. Gordano Ladies had earlier cancelled due to a lack of players and the home and away matches were awarded to Sodbury.
In need of a run out, the team were able to secure a friendly game at Cheddar.
In stark contrast to previous weeks the teams kicked off in glorious sunshine and an fast paced first half ensued and Sodbury found themselves three tries to the good by half time.
Hooker-winger Aileen O’Connell ducked the wall in front of her and dive over for the first try of the day.
A swift move in the backs saw winger Becky Anstey caught just short of the line. She offloaded to Naomi Iles who grounded the ball in the corner, only for a foot to be deemed in touch and the try disallowed.
Shortly after though Sodbury did score, Sammi Poulton to spotting a gap to score.
The third first half try came from Louise Romanowski. With a dummy switch in the middle she weaved her way through defence to score next to the posts.
Suffering a loss of a prop Cheddar had no choice but to call for uncontested scrummaging forcing Sodbury into a change of play. Despite threatening on many occasions the score remained the same into the second half.
The remainder of the game was dominated by the forwards despite a high penalty count, Cheddar were unable to utilise their advantage and Chipping Sodbury held out.
Aileen OConnell scored her second of the day, and Naomi Iles also scored a try to make it five tries without reply,  the extras added by both Paige Muxworthy and Michelle Deverill.
