They produced a double-figures destruction of bottom side Wisbech 3rds when roaring to a 17-0 success in Division Three North-West of the East Women’s League.

Natalie Dodson hit four of the goals while Jess Homans and Sarah Chadband both claimed hat-tricks.

Chloe Cundick struck twice with Rebekah Bell, Jacqui O’Neill, Laura Porter, Pam Begg and Cora Davies also getting in on the act.

Captain Helen Clarke hit a hat-trick as St Ives Ladies 1sts slayed a set of Dragons.

Clarke’s haul ensured the locals came from behind to record a 3-1 victory over Norwich opponents in Division One North.

But the St Ives side were also reliant on a series of fine saves from Ness Brown on a day when they failed to truly fire.

Ellie Burgess’ brace kept St Ives 2nds in Division Three North-West title contention. She hit both goals in a 2-0 triumph against Horncastle, but the 3rds suffered only a second slip-up of the season when going down 4-0 to Cambridge Nomads 2nds in Division Four North-West (South).

Three St Ives sides highlighted their promotion claims in the East Men’s League with emphatic successes last Saturday.

Mike Jenner hit a hat-trick as 1sts slammed bottom side Wisbech 2nds in Division Three North-West.

Steve Gibson hit his first goal since returning to the club while Alex Prestage, Pete Liddle and Dave Land also found the net.

There was also a treble in the 2nds’ 9-3 trouncing of Bourne Deeping 3rds in Division Four North-West.

Peter Young was the player to score three times in that game, while Cam Seton bagged a brace. Tim Jones, Sam Helme, Mike Boyle and Mike England also netted for a team sitting joint top in the standings.

And the 4ths climbed to the top of Division Six North-West (South) by triumphing in the first all-St Ives showdown of the season at that level.

Langton Takawira and Thomas King-Venables hit two goals apiece and Matt Jago was also on target in a 5-1 victory against the club’s 5ths.

St Ives 3rds lost 2-1 to March Town 2nds in Division Five North-West despite a Rob Brand strike.
