Meg Crowson goals help secure Cambridge City third place in Investec Women's Hockey League, Conference East
Meg Crowson scored twice for Cambridge City as they beat Sevenoaks 3-0 to secure third place in Investec Women’s Hockey League, Conference East.
The Kent side were just three points behind City going into the game, but Lisa Williamson set the visitors on the way to victory in the 21st minute.
Crowson then struck in the 62nd and 68th minutes to secure City the win and third place.
Kirsty Penfold scored twice for Cambridge Nomads but they were beaten 4-3 by Pelicans in East Women’s League, Division 2NW.
Pelicans took a quick lead and South struggled to maintain their defence to trail 3-1 at half time, with Penfold getting their goal.
It was a different story in the second half, with Penfold and Ellie Martin scoring for Nomads, but Pelicans got a fourth.
Despite holding the majority of possession and getting a penalty stroke, Nomads could not find an equaliser.
Cambridge South succumbed 2-0 to City of Peterborough II in 2NW.
The visitors had won all bar one of their games this season – with the other being drawn – so South knew they would always be up against it.
Alice Hug went off early with a back injury, but despite making light of the blow they were punished by breakaway goals in each half, giving Peterborough a 2-0 win.
South keeper Louise Tonkin was player of the match, with her efforts keeping the score respectable.
Jess Foord marked her debut for Cambridge South III with two goals in a 4-0 win over Royston II in East Women’s League, Division 4NW (S).
She had scored a double hat-trick the previous week for South IV, so was given the chance to make the step up and two more goals took her total to 15 in eight games in 2019.
Player-of-the-match Zara Mann’s speedy and skilful display was capped with a goal and Rhiannon Davies was also on target.
South finished in sixth in their debut at the level.
Alexine Macpherson was player of the match for South IV in a 5-0 defeat to 5NW (S) champions Ely II.
