Northbury 0 Raynham 12
2 touchdowns from Raynham Primary gave them the victory over Northbury after a poor defensive display from the Barking school.
Northbury 14 John Perry 6
Northbury back to winning ways with another touchdown each from Josh and Leighana. John Perry scored a touchdown which gave Northbury a slight scare but some good defensive display and attacking threat meant they progressed to the semi-finals.
Semi-final vs Roding Cannington
Northbury came agonisingly close to reaching the final as they lost on sudden death to Roding Cannington in the semi-final.
