Sean Sanderson hit a hat-trick in a 4-0 victory against St Ives 4ths, with Danny Rowland-Cox also finding the net.
That was one of only two wins managed by the club’s male sides last weekend – the other came from the 1sts in Division Three North-West.
It also featured a hat-trick with Danny Stephenson doing most of the damage in a 5-0 success against Cambridge City Vets. Bradley Forsdick provided the other two goals.
A brace from Kevin Sequenza helped the 3rds draw 3-3 with Cambridge City 6ths in Division Five North-West. Sam Setchell also struck in that deadlock, but the 2nds went down heavily, 5-1 to Cambridge Nomads 2nds, in Division Four North-West.

Eleanor Pybus struck twice in the latest victory while her mother, Andrea, took the player-of-the-match accolade. Niamh Gaynor, Kira Herbert and Charlie Churms were the other goalscorers.
The 2nds are still in the promotion hunt in Division Three after a 4-0 victory against Broxbourne 4ths.
Sue Glover hit a hat-trick and Sophie Draper also found the net for a team who sit a point behind second-placed Hertford 3rds with a game in hand.
