LSHC Ladies 3, St Neots 0

Long Sutton Ladies served up a great team performance for the second week running with three good and clinical second half strikes.

The first goal came from Sutton’s second short corner of the second half with Gribble injecting to Leanne Woodhead who fired home a rocket shot from just inside the D. The second came on 50 minutes when Woodhead picked out Robyn Gribble.

With 10 minutes to go Jess Hudson put an inch-perfect pass to the stick of Woodhead who bagged a well-taken second goal. Eight goals from two games now places Sutton joint top with Peterborough 1sts.

PoM: the lively Leanne Woodhead.

LSHC Ladies 2nd 3, Lincoln 2nds 3

Millie Lamming made the score even at half time.

Jeorgia Carr and Amber Jones also scored for a young Sutton side.

PoM: Amber Jones.

LSHC Men 2,

Saffron Walden 4

Sutton played some good hockey at times and deserved more out of this Prem B game.

Sutton had equalised as Fyson found Cook in the D who calmly slotted home but Sutton relaxed and were 2-1 down at half time.

Sutton soon equalised as Fyson’s cross/shot took a wicked deflection. Walden scored a wonderful solo goal, Harrison was sent to the sin bin after contesting a dubious decision and then from a mix up at a Sutton short corner Walden broke and made it 4-2.

LSHC Men’s 2nd 4, Wisbech Town 2nds 3

With the return of Ross Gavaghan and the addition of Gary Hales to the Sutton squad, excellent work from Otto Esse and Alex Canham set Hales free to put the home side 1-0 up within two minutes.

The visitors scored a deserved equaliser but in the second half Hales claimed a hat-trick, only to watch Wisbech equalise once again.

Esse released Gavaghan with his first league goal for the club and the winner.

Sutton Player of the Match: Matt Holmes.

LSHC 3rd 2, Spalding 4ths 5

A first half penalty flick save by keeper Slator and good goals were scored by Jack Smith and Calvin Bishop, but Spalding had a better first touch.

LSHC 4th 0, 
Leadenham 2nds 4

Sutton’s young fourths came off second best against a very well drilled Leadenham side.

They will need to come together rapidly to avoid a similar fate at Grantham next weekend.

MoM: Pavel Saponenko.
