Benson United kicked off their campaign in style with a 9-0 victory away at Carterton Town.

Summertown Stars twice came from behind to see off Highworth Town 4-3, a quickfire double from Lucy Jenner ultimately separating the two sides.
Flora Kempton equalised for Stars after Highworth took the lead and Jess Byles drew them level once again after a mix-up allowed Highworth to regain the advantage.
