Oldham take to the court looking focused & ready, they turn over the first centre pass & it's complete domination from them on.

Quarter 2 sees no changes for Oldham who continue to put the pressure on Chester with amazing work from franky souther (WD) who is hunting for everything. Half time & Oldham are leading 19/10. Quarter 3 no changes. Oldham continue to dominate with Ellie Williams (wa) feeding the circle with passes & vision well beyond her years. The patients Williams & Leddy have is impressive. Going into the final quarter & Oldham are hungrier than ever. A great intercept from Marsden sees the ball come fluently down the court all the way to goal.
