After winning all 8 Singles matches they were prevented from achieving a maximum score by a determined Cambridge effort in the lower Doubles. The Oxford reserves, the Beavers, did however score a maximum in defeating the inexperienced Cambridge Sparrows by 180-60. Meanwhile, in the best Ladies Match since its inception 6 years ago Cambridge scored their fifth victory in a row under the leadership of Holly Nugent.
