Heidi Baber and Jordan Homann were on target for Cambridge City as they beat Bedford 2-1 in the Investec Women’s League, Conference East.

City took control of the game from the start, with a dazzling display of passing hockey putting in Baber for the opener.

They forced the game without getting a second goal, and it was giving Bedford chances on the counter-attack.

Katie Curtis almost thwarted one such attack, only for a penalty flick to be awarded and despite keeper Polly Oakman’s best efforts, Bedford were level.

After half time, Hannah de Selincourt found the back of the net via a well-worked deflection but it was disallowed as reverse stick.

City’s pursuit of a winner finally paid off as Homann struck with a reverse-stick rocket.

Harriet Pruett made a jet-setting appearance for Cambridge South IV to be named player of the match in their 1-0 defeat to St Neots IV in East Women’s Hockey, League, Division 5NW (S).

She now lives in New Mexico but was on a 10-day break in the city when she appeared for her former club.

South were hindered in their search for an equaliser though as Ania Rygielska suffered a facial injury and centre forward and top scorer Emily Stevenson tended to the sweeper on the sidelines.

Cambridge South III have one game left in their bid to complete a 100 per cent record for the season after beating Ely III 8-0 in 5NW (S).

Lucy Davidson completed a hat-trick to reach 44 goals for the season and Lou Walker also got three goals. Jess Langford and Jess Watson got one apiece to complete the win.

Amy Kingston bagged a brace and Phillipa Downing got one as Nomads II won 3-1 against Ely City II in 4NW (S).

Alice Wright scored a hat-trick for Cambridge South II, including a spectacular strike into the top corner, as they beat Royston 3-1 in a friendly.

They need a point in their final league game to claim the 4NW (S) title.

Cambridge Nomads were beaten 2-1 by Peterborough II in 2NW, with their goal coming from Flip Toley’s penalty stroke, after Ellie Martin had been taken out by the keeper.
