And The Perse School under-13s reach national finals

Goals from Robyn McLean and Alice Hug saw Cambridge South return to winning ways by beating Spalding 2-1 in East Women’s League, Division 2NW.

McLean swept in a penalty corner and Hug broke a recent goal drought to make it 2-0.

Spalding pulled a goal back through the help of a deflection before the break, but South were comfortable for their win.

Katie Gibson got the only goal as Cambridge South II beat Sudbury II 1-0 in 4NW (S).

Gibson’s effort came after the break and they maintained their lead thanks to a good defensive performance from player-of-the-match Harriet Shipley.

Lauren Brown hit a hat-trick and Katherine Hueston bagged a brace as 5NW (S) leaders South III kept their 100 per cent record with a 5-0 win over a resolute and young Bury St Edmunds IV.

Top scorer Emily Stevenson took her season’s tally to nine and Liz Dunsby got her first league goals in her sixth year at the club as both hit hat-tricks as South IV won 8-0 against Ely City III. Jessica Matthews-Kelly also struck twice.

Meanwhile, The Perse School under-13s’ girls’ hockey team have been crowned East region champions.

At the regional finals, Bella Howarth scored twice and Bella Ely got one in a 3-0 win over Norwich School, Emma Harris bagged a brace in a 2-1 triumph over Sevenoaks School and Howarth, Ely and May Busher hit the target in a 3-1 victory over Felsted School.

Howard grabbed the only goal as the Perse won 1-0 against Queenswood School in a last four qualification match.

Howarth, Busher and Ely scored for the Perse in a 3-2 win over Framlingham College, and they then edged out Gresham’s School 2-1, thanks to strikes from Harris and Busher.

And they took the overall honours with a 3-0 win over Orwell Park, thanks to a brace from Ely and one from Howarth, to reach the national finals of the English In2Hockey Schools Championships next May.
