Meantime in Bodden Town, Sunset FC and Scholars International met for a second time in as many weeks, following their tough battle in the Charity Shield on 30 October, which Sunset won 1-0 with a penalty kick.

Ariella Smith put Scholars ahead seven minutes after play resumed, only to have Carly Dingham find the back of the net for Sunset four minutes later. The teams were unable to separate themselves for the rest of the game as it ended 2-2.
