Lead grows for South thirds
Joe Whittaker struck twice to increase Cambridge South III’s advantage at the top of East Men’s League, Division 5NW with a 5-0 win over City of Peterborough VIII.
Goalkeeper Matt Saint-Gower made some early saves before two goals in two minutes put South in command at half time.
Ollie Kenzie’s first goal for the club, finishing off a length-of-the-field passing move, was the pick of the bunch, with Jason James and Rob Barton also on target in the win as South went five points clear of Cambridge City VI.
Kim Cooil continued terrorising defences for Cambridge South as they won 14-0 against newly-promoted Wisbech III in East Women’s League, Division 3NW.
Cooil scored seven times as South went to the top of the league.
Lou Cantwell scored her first hat-trick for the club, while Amalia Thomas bagged a brace and Robyn Murray and Alison Small were also on target.
Cambridge South III gave Cambridge Nomads II a scare in 4NW (S).
South were second from bottom going into the game, while Nomads were second from top, having scored 46 goals in their previous 11 games.
But South’s defence, led by skipper Laura Edge, proved tough to break down. Nomads made the breakthrough once, while South saw two good opportunities to strike back go begging as they narrowly lost 1-0.
