Emma Owens grabbed a late equaliser for Cambridge City II in a 1-1 draw at Dereham in the Mr Cricket Hockey East Women’s League, Premier Division.

Dereham had taken an early lead, converting one of only two penalty corners all match.

City, on the other hand, had 11 penalty corners, but were only able to score from one in the last few minutes of the game.

Amy Brooke’s shot was saved by the keeper but kicked hard and in the air at Abi Jewkes, who intercepted and it dropped at the feet of Owens and she reacted quickly to turn the ball home to give City a share of the spoils.

Laura Ludlow grabbed two goals as Cambridge South won 3-0 against St Ives in 1N.

A scrappy first period was summed up by South’s opening goal against the basement side at the end of the half.

A miss-trapped pass fortuitously fell to Ludlow, who did not connect cleanly with the reverse-stick shot but it trickled into the corner anyway.

After the break, Ludlow nutmegged the keeper following Alice Walker’s driving run for her second of the day and Izzy MacDonald-Parry won and scored a penalty corner to complete the win.

South’s player of the match was Annie Macdonald, who started at defence but ended the match up front due to injuries.

City III were thwarted in their efforts for a goal in a 0-0 draw with City of Peterborough II in 1N.

Katie Maude-Barker had a goal disallowed as it was judged to be a first-time hit above the backboard on a penalty corner, and Kelly Mackenzie had a penalty stroke saved by the keeper.

The draw means City lost ground on leaders Bury St Edmunds, who are now four points clear.

Jess Mitchell was on target for Cambridge Nomads in a 1-1 draw with St Ives II.

The Saints took the lead through a shot corner, but Mitchell responded for Nomads before the break.

Nomads dominated the second half, creating numerous chances to score, but could not force the ball over the line and had to settle for a point.

Emilia Knight and Jemima Wrigley were on target for City V in a 2-1 win over Spalding II in 3NW.

A superb first-half display helped South III to a 5-2 victory over Kettering II in a promotion clash in 3NW.

Juliette Stoop set the tone with a strike in the first five minutes and Tabitha Broomes made it 2-0 through a penalty corner.

Steph Kyprou-Westwood grabbed two goals after a duel with the Kettering keeper, who thwarted the South player a number of times.

Kettering channelled their anger in an improved second half by pulling two goals back, but could get no closer thanks in part to the display of player-of-the-match Katie Hunter in defence.

South finished their scoring when Stoop’s cross was moved on by Emma Julian to Emily Bird to score as they leapfrogged Kettering in the table.

South V were handed a 5-0 walkover win in 5NW as planned opponents St ives were unable to raise a team.

Then, in a hastily-arranged friendly, they drew 1-1 with 4NE (S) side Bury St Edmunds. Player-of-the-match Daisy Storey scored her first goal for South, while Cassie Woodfin was in top form in goal.
