S-Tech Ladies League Premier Division
Ketton 1 Leverington 6
Leverington travelled over to Ketton to face a team they know well, having been been narrowly beaten by them to last season's north championship title.
The opening exchanges were frantic with both sides putting in some heavy challenges, gradually the game settled down with the visitors bossing possession and the home team looking to hit on the break, Leverington took the lead when a Kaylie Swinden free kick was flicked into the box, Terri Ann Moeser forced the keeper into an excellent save but top scorer Sophie Swinden (photo: Steve Hone) was on hand to lift the ball over the stranded keeper for a 0-1 half time lead.
Shortly after the break Savanna Plavecz got on the end of a great cross from Chloe Stanborough to double the lead, Kaylie Swinden then out jumped the home defence and powered a header into the far corner from a wide free kick, Chloe Stanborough then got amongst the goals when Sophie Swinden played her into the box and she skipped past a defender before calmly slotting the ball home, Ketton pulled a goal back from a free kick which keeper kyra Portugal done well to get fingers too but couldn't prevent it going in via the bar, 1-4, with the clock ticking downour young striker Plavecz robbed a defender and ran through on goal to slot in her 9th goal of her first full season in ladies football, then with almost the last kick of the game the outstanding Amy Newell produced a moment of real class when she let fly from 35 yards out and dipped a powerful swerving shot into the top corner to cap an excellent display by the whole team.
The ladies now move back up to second place in the table and face 3rd place Ica ladies this coming Sunday 2pm ko at Leverington. S Tech Prem - Cambs Uni Ladies 3 March Town Ladies 2
The Hares played their first game for a month and were pipped by Cambs Uni in an open and exciting game.
The Hares took the lead on 30 minutes when Josie Turner was put through and she lobbed the advancing keeper. Eleanor McLeish also hit the side netting before two quick Uni goals gave the opponents the lead 2-1 by half time. Debutant Tilly Sands had a shot well saved by the Uni goalkeeper and Emma Searle went close. Uni went 3-1 up with a long range shot, which keeper Tori Sharpe did well to get a hand too but it crept in. A 30 yard screamer from Searle reduced the deficit to one and set up for an exciting finish. The Hares almost equalised when another debutant and PoM Yaz Holmes had a glancing header just go wide. The Ladies are away to Fulbourn Institute next Sunday.
