St Ives Town Ladies continued their surge in the Eastern Region Women’s League last Sunday.
They stretched their unbeaten Premier Division run to three matches with a 3-1 victory at Haringey Borough.
Georgia Stancombe provided an early breakthrough with an excellent volley before Hannah Seymour-Shove and Katie Stancombe rattled the crossbar.
But there was no stopping them from doubling their lead as Tierney Coulson finished from close range after pouncing on an attempted back-pass.
Hosts Haringey hit back early in the second half but Saints soon restored the two-goal cushion as Seymour-Shove struck from the penalty spot after Ella Burnley was barged off the ball.

Burnley was then denied a goal of her own by the crossbar but Saints had already done enough to earn victory and ease six points clear of the drop-zone following a difficult start to their debut season at this level.
Boss Daren Marjoram thanked Omega Tour for providing minibus transport for the Saints team to the game.
