Jess Foord was in red-hot form with seven goals as Cambridge South III beat St Neots III 9-0 in East Women’s League, Division 4NW (S).

She opened the scoring with a penalty flick, and had completed her hat-trick by half time.

After the break, she got four more, while Evie Bennett got a first for South and Zara Mann got the ninth in the last minute.​

South II’s 100 per cent start to the season in 3S was brought to an end with a 3-2 defeat at Royston.

The Crows went ahead before half time, and made it 2-0 before Izzy MacDonald-Parry pulled one back. Royston got a third, and MacDonald-Parry’s second was a consolation.

Cambridge South maintained their flying start to the season by ending Long Sutton’s with a 4-0 win in 2NW.

South had scored 19 goals in their opening two games, but it was a massed visiting defence facing them.

Player-of-the-match Alice Wright smashed in the opener, and the lead was doubled as Carly Brown burst down the left channel to score.

As Long Sutton went forward in order to preserve their unbeaten record, it left space for South and Wright got her second with a powerful rising shot.​

​Vice-captain Kim Cooil deflected in skipper Robyn McLean’s powerful shot for the final goal.

Cambridge Nomads’ search for their first win continued as they lost 4-3 to Spalding.

They trailed 3-0 before gaining their composure to recover to 3-2 at half time. A goal each after the break finished the scoring.

Liz Freeman was Nomads’ player of the match, while their goals were scored by Kirsty Penfold, Charlotte Argue and Sarah Warren.

Tess Skyrme and Naomi Gibson fired Cambridge South IV to a 2-0 win over Newmarket IV in 5NW (S).

They made it three wins out of three as Skyrme got the first with an accurate shot into the right corner and Gibson finished off after Katy Leonard’s driving run.

Keeper Cassie Woodfin produced a player-of-the-match performance as South V lost 4-0 to Newmarket III.

​Cambridge City lost 5-0 at Reading in the Investec Women’s League, Division One South.
