The Nomads and the newcomers played an end-to-end match with the Nomads prevailing 6-3. The second match saw old rivals Nomads and Viñuela clash with the visitors dominating a 5-2 win to take revenge for the home league defeat in November.
The third game saw Competa squander several good chances in a 2-0 defeat to Viñuela who claimed the Cooltec Christmas Cup, presented by Keith Bucknell of Cooltec. It was encouraging to see each team had a female player in their ranks.
