Cambridge City Hockey Club’s Women’s V player Sarah Lambert involved in six of the eight goals during big victory over St Neots II

Sarah Lambert was Cambridge City Hockey Club’s star performer last weekend.

Her Cambridge City V side recorded a thumping 8-1 win over St Neots II in the East Women’s League Division 2 North West – and Lambert was front and centre of the triumph.

Not only did she weigh in with a hat-trick of goals, she also assisted her team-mates for three others in what proved to be a day to remember.

Abbey Cotton (2), Immie Tooley (2) and Kate Newhouse all got in on the scoring act to rubberstamp a victory that leaves City V requiring just one more point to ensure that they are mathematically safe from relegation after the previous season’s promotion.

In the same division, Cambridge City IV remain in the promotion hunt following their 2-1 win on the road at Pelicans. Xanthe Stebbing opened the scoring with an accurate drive into the far corner before Katie Maude-Barker scored a classic penalty corner deflection to wrap up the victory.

The win has left third-placed City IV level on points with Cambridge South II in second spot.

Elsewhere, Cambridge City have continued their pursuit of the Vitality Women’s Conference Midlands title after they won 4-3 at Bedford.

The visitors got off to the worst possible start as hosting Bedford fired in two goals inside the opening quarter of the contest.

However, goals from Evie Younger and Kat Petch had City level before the break, with further efforts from May Busher and Holly Dean completing the comeback at the restart.

Second-placed City are just a point adrift of table-topping Repton.

Also in second position are Cambridge City II thanks to their 3-0 win at Upminster in the East Women’s League Premier Division.

Another innovative finish from Emily Clapham set City on their way before two close-range goals from Lucy Pendleton put the outcome beyond any doubt.

Cambridge City VI have opened up a three-point advantage at the top of the East Women’s League Division 4 North West courtesy of their 3-0 home win against Spalding III.

Dalin Li (2) and Hattie Emerson were both on target for the league leaders.

In the England Hockey Men’s Division 1 North, Cambridge City remain in relegation danger following their 2-1 loss to the side directly above them, Deeside Ramblers.

A goal in either half handed Deeside control and while Marc Rocca pulled a goal back with 13 minutes remaining, it proved to be nothing more than a consolation as second-from-bottom City slipped five points adrift of their opponents.

Ammo Flora scored twice in Cambridge City II’s 3-1 win over Old Loughtonians II in the East Men’s League Premier Division, whereas Cambridge City III lost 5-3 to Long Sutton in the East Men’s League Division 2 North West.

Meanwhile, goals from Simon Webb and Raphael Zailer-Fletcher earned Cambridge City V a 2-2 draw with City of Peterborough V in the East Men’s League Division 3 North West.
