Chelmsford were unable to construct any possession of play and the side from the lower division finally took a well deserved lead in the 20th minute. Chelmsford were unable to take control of the match and were fortunate not to be trailing by two goals when Poynton were unable to score from a penalty stroke minutes before half-time.

After the interval, Chelmsford slowly started to put pressure on the defence of Poynton. Goal scoring chances did fall to Lynn Bollington but she was unable to convert the pressure into goals.

Poynton held onto a well-deserved win and progress to the semi-final of the cup.
