Chatteris 2,

Eaton Socon 0

Chatteris were grateful to goalkeeper Jamie Hughes for an inspired performance including six super saves and one brave smother at feet to ensure they went five points clear in second place.

With Hughes in tip top form, Chatteris struggled in the first half against a very well organised team.

Tyler Crane should have done better when gifted with a free header five yards out.

Substitute Gary Jackson was to be the match winner when a great run and cross-come-shot found its way into the net after 52 minutes.

Ten minutes later Jackson again found a deep cross which was turned into the net by a Socon defender. Chatteris held out for another clean sheet in a brilliant win.

Werrington 1,

Wisbech St Mary 1

Werrington came out of this game with great credit against top of the table side WSM in what turned out to be a very even game with very few chances being created.

Saints had to wait until five minutes into the second half before opening their account with Reagan Brown scoring a very good individual goal.

Not to be outdone Werrington fought for every ball and scored a very good goal to take a share of the points in what was a very under par Saints’ performance.

Riverside 1,

Leverington 6

This game managed to go ahead despite the morning frost, but left the pitch very difficult to play on.

Leverington tried to play the ball on the floor and Billy Carman scored a fine hat-trick, Tommy Wiles (mom) scored two and Lewis Stearne was also on target. Harry Barnes was once again strong in defence.

Wisbech St Mary 1,

March SS 0

Saints, who made it 12 straight wins, were soon controlling the game, but could not beat the March goalkeeper.

There were missed chances again in the second half and they hit the woodwork four times.

Then with seconds remaining Willis Wright smacked in the winner after good work from Tristan Jones (mom) and Brody Warren.

Histon Hornets 2,

Estover Park 0

Estover Park’s defeat in the County Cup quarter-final was down to missed chances.

Despite enjoying the majority of the possession, chances went begging for Amy Newell, Abby Deighton and Sydney Davis, as a combination of good saves and bad luck prevented Park from scoring.

Hornets only had three shots, with great defensive displays from Brooke Anderson and Bethan Evans, but a goal in each half ended Park’s cup run.
