Third team wrack up big win
Lucy Davidson found the net six times as Cambridge South III brought up 100 league goals for the season in an 18-0 win over Newmarket IV in East Women’s League, Division 5NW (S).
Dani Arnold grabbed five goals, Lauren Brown got four including the 100th with the 13th of the match, Emily Stevenson struck twice and Lauren Coates was also on target.
But a youthful Cambridge South IV lost 3-0 to a similarly young Bury St Edmunds IV, with Liz Dunsby named player of the match for South.
In 4NW (S), South II kept themselves in the promotion mix with a 3-1 win over Ely City II.
Izzy MacDonald-Parry scored after just 45 seconds, and skipper Louisa Warburton and Kate Burton were also on target.
And with a defeat for leaders Royston, three teams are locked on 33 points at the top of the table.
Ellie Martin and Robyn McLean both scored twice as Cambridge South and Cambridge Nomads drew 2-2 in 2NW.
McLean twice put South in from from penalty corners, but on each occasion Martin equalised for Nomads. It leaves South fourth, one point adrift of second place.
In the East Men’s League, Martin Hamon scored twice and Richard Lloyd and Gian Luca, with his first goal for the first team, got one each as Cambridge Nomads won 4-0 against Long Sutton in Division One.
Cambridge South are hovering precariously above the 2S drop zone after a 2-0 defeat to Bedford II.
Two second-half goals did the damage as South failed to score for only the third time in 15 games.
First-half strikes from James Menzies, skipper-for-the-day Matt Allsopp, Ali Edge and John Pawson gave Cambridge South II a 4-2 win over City of Peterborough VI in 4NW.
Cambridge South III failed to make the most of their chances as they drew 2-2 with strugglers Bourne Deeping IV in 4NW.
Man-of-the-match Toby Watson scored twice, but they were pegged back on both occasions.
And Cambridge Nomads II lost 6-0 to leaders St Ives II.
In 6NW (S), Oli Anderson was the star of the show with a hat-trick for Cambridge South IV to move seven points clear at the top of the table with a 3-1 win over St Ives IV.
There was also a hat-trick for Will Dyer as Cambridge Nomads III won 5-1 against St Neots V. Mike Longson junior and Matthew Huchu got one apiece, with Garth Hanlon making all five assists.
Father-and-son pairing Stuart and Peter Creed were on target for Cambridge South V as they beat Kettering IV.
