Another wave of attack from OLs saw hooker Emily Worrall score OLs’ third try of the match.
Further tries from Liz Kennedy, Lois Moulding, and Jen Vermeulen earned OLs a commanding 38 point lead. But that was reduced on the stroke of half time when Lutterworth registered their first try of the game.

Kennedy – who eventually bagged a hat-trick fought hard to earn OLs opening try of the half while Lutterworth responded with a marker of their own.
Winger Pauline Dumont registered OLs’ last try of the match as the home side won by a comfortable 50 points.
