The Hares put in an excellent performance at Cambridge City Ladies in the S Tech Prem.

Shannon Shaw scored her 20th goal of the season, after being put through by Naomi McGarvie.

Shaw lobbed the keeper in the eighth minute with a great finish.

The Hares played well defensively, leaving City with limited chances in the first half.

A great one-handed save from Tori Sharpe ensured that the Hares led at the break.

City put the pressure on in the second half, with the Hares looking strong on the counter-attack.

The team could do nothing to stop a well-worked equaliser ten minutes from time and City scored the winner in the 86th minute.

Late chances fell to Livvi Hodges, whose shot was well saved and a decent penalty shout for handball was denied.

It was a hard result for the ladies who had given their all.

and deserved something from the game in icy conditions.
