Eimear Lee on song in Cambridge South intra-club derby
Disappointing day for Nomads and South in 2NW
Eimear Lee scored twice for Cambridge South II in a 4-0 inter-club derby over Cambridge South III in East Women’s League, Division 4NW (S).
Izzy MacDonald-Parry missed a penalty stroke for the seconds but they took the lead when Sarah Haddow set up Rebecca Frith to score with a reverse-stick push.
Lee got her first with a tap in, after Cassie Woodfin had saved her initial shot, to make it 2-0 at half time.
Dani Arnold and MacDonald-Parry set Hannah Snow up to make it 3-0 after the break, and Lee completed the win with a goal after a scrap for possession in the circle.
Emily Stevenson had a twice-taken penalty corner saved by South II keeper Louise Robeson to deny them a consolation.
Cambridge Nomads were unable to stop City of Peterborough in 2NW, losing 3-0.
The hosts have not lost a game yet this season, and despite having 75 per cent of possession, they only had a 1-0 lead at half time.
After the break, the ball did not leave Nomads’ defensive half as Peterborough managed to squeeze in two more goals.
Linsey Porter was player of the match in a high-paced game, with Nomads still third in the league.
Cambridge South suffered a 5-3 defeat to Alford & District in 2NW.
South fell two goals behind, but pulled one back before half time as player-of-the-match Laura Ludlow converted.
Alford extended their advantage to 4-1 in the second half, but Ludlow reduced the arrears by completing her hat-trick.
South went in search of an equaliser but they were hit on the counter attack with a fifth Alford goal to send them to defeat.
Cambridge City drew 1-1 with Sevenoaks in Investec Women’s Hockey League, Conference East, with Helen Richardson-Walsh scoring from a penalty corner.
