Lucy Davidson took her tally for the season to 28 goals as Cambridge South III won 17-0 against Cambridge South IV in East Women’s League, Division 5NW (S).
Davidson grabbed six goals, while Dani Arnold weighed in with five and Kath Atkin, Lauren Brown and Jess Woodhouse got two apiece.
Tabitha Broome was the outstanding performer for South IV.
Sophie McComish scored the only goal of the game as South firsts won 1-0 against St Ives II in 2NW.
South had all the possession and keeper Lou Tonkin only had one shot to deal with, while at the other end they were working hard to create an opening but were lacking the final touch.
But the deadlock was broken midway through the second half when Robyn Murray’s unselfish pass picked out McComish at the far post to tap in.
Jack Chalk provided the bookends to Cambridge South’s 2-2 draw with Blueharts II in East Men’s League, Division 2S.
He scored the first goal only seconds into the game, finishing off Jim Hockley’s cross to the far post.
Blueharts hit back with goals either side of the interval to go 2-1 ahead.
But as time appeared to be running out, a dribble by Harry Chalk saw him upended in the final minute, and Jack Chalk converted the penalty stroke to seal the draw.
A poor first half cost Cambridge South II dear as they lost 4-2 to St Ives II in 4NW.

Cambridge South III fought back from a goal down to beat St Neots II in 4NW.
