Ladies and under-14 teams earn cup success
Cambridge City women’s and girls’ teams have been adding to their silverware in the last week.
In the Women’s Cambs Invitation Cup, City secured a 3-1 win over Cambridge United at Histon.
Amy Howlett put United ahead in the first half, and City had the chance to equalise before the break but Bella Simmons missed a penalty.
However, she made up for it in the second half by hitting a hat-trick as a display of high energy earned City the trophy with a 3-1 win.
Yael Benjamin bagged a brace as Cambridge City under-14s added to the trophy haul with a 4-0 win over ICA Sports in the S-Tech-sponsored League Cup final.
At St Neots, the Lilywhites produced an impressive display to seal a league and cup double, with goals from Katie Levatt and Amie Fulwood adding to Benjamin’s double.
The development team made the trip to March Town United for a double header, and won both matches 2-0, with Megan Tonks getting three goals and Simmons scoring one.
Maddy Shanks scored from the edge of the box as Cambridge City under-13 B won 1-0 at St Ives Rangers in their final game of the season. Evie White was named player of the match.
Cambridge City under-12s moved top of their table with a 14-0 win over Yaxley, and their hopes of claiming the title are now in the hands of Netherton United, who must beat Saffron Walden to deny them the Lilywhites the crown.
City will be facing Panthers in the League Cup final.
