A busy weekend in the regional league for our teams, Southampton won matches with Horfield and Bristol City to strengthen their 2nd place in the league. Oxford also won away at Gloucester. Basingstoke lost out to league leaders Bristol Thunder in a match that also counts for the EKA promotion division.
