Rotherham United Women prevailed as 2-1 winners away from home as goals from Lauren Winter and Georgia Harris were enough to ensure that they returned to Roundwood with maximum points on the board.

There were just three minutes on the clock when Dina Sarayreh played in Winter, who made no mistake as she slotted it beyond the 'keeper to make it 1-0.

The Millers dominated the play but found themselves level when Oughtibridge replied on the half-hour mark.

Winter turned architect in the second half as she drew a foul for a penalty on 62 minutes, which Harris coolly despatched to make it 2-1.

It was another week of mixed results of the women and girls teams with the U12s and U15s both securing maximum points, whilst a depleted U18s Whites and the U14s came out on the wrong end of scorelines against Sheffield United Whites and Chesterfield Ladies.

It was an absolutely fantastic team performance which saw the Under 12 Girls prevail as 3-2 victors after they made a flying start to the game with Stephenson putting her side in front with a header.

Barnsley would reply soon after but Stephenson doubled her tally for the day with a second goal, this time assisted by Braidley.

The Reds would refuse to relent and drew themselves level again but the RUBWGFC continued to improve and notched the winner through Kamara, with Balfour coming to her side’s rescue at the other end to ensure the points.

The Under 14s were defeated 8-1 at Chesterfield Ladies with Mack scoring the consolation.

Meanwhile, it was a good day for the Under 15s, who moved up to third place with a 3-0 win over HasLand, courtesy of three second half goals from Bokwala, Nyinza and Wallace.

A depleted Under 18 Whites team could only turn out eight players as their struggles continued with a 4-2 home defeat to Sheffield United Whites. A spirited display from those in attendance wasn’t enough to end their winless run, as goals came from Katie Baldwin and Skye Else. Sheffield United showed great sportsmanship by only fielding nine players of their own in the fixture.
