Light Blues are defeated

Cambridge University conceded a late goal to lose 3-2 to Wapping in East Women’s League, Premier Division.

After a high tempo opening at Wilberforce Road, Wapping’s high press was forcing the students into some strong tackles, but the visitors broke the deadlock with two quick goals before half time.

Strong passing and good movement after the break got the Blues back into the match, with Sophia Padt scoring the first goal and then Georgie Burrows equalising for the university.

But Wapping sneaked a winner inside the last 10 minutes.

Cambridge South bounced back from conceding an early goal to draw 1-1 with Ely City in 3NW.

An elaborately-worked effort from Elaine Penniket drew the sides level, and South pressured for the remainder of the game but after Penniket missed a penalty stroke, they had to settle for a well-earned point.

Meleni Aksoy was the backbone of the defence as Cambridge South II won 3-0 against Newmarket III in 4NW (S).

In the convincing team display, Cath Anthony, Izzy MacDonald-Parry and Sarah Thorman were the South goalscorers.

Rosie Earwalker’s goal from a penalty corner could not stop Cambridge South III losing 4-1 to a decisive Newmarket IV in 4NW (S).
