With tough competition in the round robin league The Harwich side’s first game was against Woodbridge. It turned out to be a disjointed game with the Owls eventually putting on some attacking flair to win the game 29 - 10. The next game against Lakenham Hewitt saw Harwich develop their attacking game and dominating the match, running out victors 33- 5.
The next game against the Jolly Sailors was again a one-sided affair with the Peterborough side struggling to cope with the pace at which the Owls were playing and the full time score of 43 - 0 highlighted the gulf. With UEA withdrawing from the competition because of injuries Harwich played their last league game against Wymondham after a long wait. This had no effect on the Owls who again showed too much pace and a powerful defence to win the game 39 - 0.
The semi-final saw Harwich facing Woodbridge again. This time the Owls were now on top form and on the larger pitch moved the ball at a pace Woodbridge could not cope with at all. Despite some aggressive defence by Woodbridge they were overrun by Harwich who qualified for the final with a 51 - 0 victory.
The final against Lakenham Hewitt underlined the how well Harwich had improved over the day. In attack the pace and movement were a constant threat to the opposition defence and when Lakenham were able to get their hands on the ball they were met with a stoic defensive wall. The final score of 39 -0 highlighted the dominance of the Owls.
This was a superb display of sevens rugby from Harwich & Dovercourt to retain the trophy.
The squad was: Abi Cutts, Sophia Tricker, Naomi Dobner, Bronwyn Skipworth,Katy Dock, Mimi Montgomery, Annalise Allan, Amber Wadlow, Yas Amber, Poppy Flatt, Lauren Richardson, Louise Willcott and Georgie Lingham
