Cambridge South suffer National Mixed Trophy exit at hands of Surbiton
First foray into competition is ended by England Hockey League giants
Cambridge South’s first foray into the National Mixed Trophy was brought to an end with a 6-0 second-round defeat to Surbiton.
The England Hockey League club fielded a number of players with National League experience, and that told against South, although Sophie McComish, Debi Gibson and Chris Pearson all drew saves from the hosts’ keeper.
In league action, Cambridge South had their rearranged match against Haverhill in the East Women’s League, Division 3NW.
And they consolidated their position at the top of the table with a 5-0 win, thanks to doubles from player-of-the-match Amalia Thomas and Kim Cooil and one from McComish.
Ellie Martin scored for Cambridge Nomads in their 4-1 defeat to Alford in 2NW, while Nomads II won 3-0 against Newmarket III in 4NW (S), with Annie Mather and Amy Kingston among the goals.
Mike Longson and Alex James scored for Cambridge Nomads as they were unable to hold on to a 2-1 half-time lead in a 4-2 defeat to top-of-the-table Norwich Dragons in East Men’s League, Division 2N.
Cambridge South II had a 5-1 friendly win over Oundle II, with a brace from Lauren Brown and one each from Katie Gibson, Eimear Lee and Serin Dabb.
Simon Ta and Max Holgate were on target for Cambridge South III as they lost 3-2 to Hertford III in a friendly between two sides at the top of their respective leagues.
