Individual efforts from Laura Mills and Charlotte Gillies guided Cambridge City to a 3-1 win over Harlow Town in the Eastern Region Women’s Football League, Premier Division.
Harlow took the lead through a penalty after 20 minutes following their first foray into City territory, and it could have been 2-0 if not for a good save by keeper Tee Mhunduru.
City were level when Gillies took a diagonal pass to square for Bella Simmons, who tapped home from close range.
With the wind in their favour in the second half, City’s use of space out wide led to their next two goals.
Mills went past a couple of defenders on the left, created space and turned inside to fire home.
On the right, Gillies conjured up something similar for City’s third goal to secure their victory.
