City make it six straight wins

Cambridge City earned their sixth straight win by beating Stevenage reserves 4-2 to stay top of the Eastern Region Women’s Football League, Division One.

Rachel Pearce reacted to a rebound from her initial shot to give City a 1-0 lead at half time.

They doubled their advantage after the break as Bella Simmons was on hand to convert Emma Littlewood’s cross from close range.

Stevenage reduced the arrears, finishing off a loose ball in the area, but Charlotte Gillies slotted home to restore City’s two-goal advantage.

And they finished off their scoring thanks to a marauding run and finish from a tight angle by Lolly Tomlinson. Stevenage scored a late consolation.

City’s development team were pegged back in the dying minutes as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Milton in the S-Tech Women’s League, Championship South.

Philippa Witherspoon scored twice to give City a 2-0 lead, but they were able to convert some of their other chances and Milton hit back to grab a point.

In the S-Tech Girls’ League, Cambridge City under-14s were beaten 5-3 by Isleham United.

In an end-to-end and close match, Annabel Cuthbert scored a hat-trick for City but it was not to be their day as Isleham ran out winners.
