St Ives’ first team ran out comfortable winners against Harpenden with a 4-1 victory.

Starting brightly, Ives took the lead through a well-taken goal from George Richards following a strong run.

Dolemore finished off the second following a fast counter attack following good defensive work by Andy Lane and James Lloyd.

Ives continued at this tempo in the second half, with Dolemore scoring a second with a strong shot that went in off the post.

Si Johnson made two excellent saves to keep Harpenden scoreless before Dolemore scored his third and Ives’ fourth with another powerful shot.

The flow of the game broke down with yellow cards issued to both teams and Harpenden grabbed a consolation through a scruffy short corner routine.

The ladies did not fare as well, going down 5-2 at Wisbech.
