Market Deeping 8, St Ives IIXI 2
ST IVES left Lincolnshire with no points, despite goals from MoM David Boyle and Alex Slater.
The visitors conceded two goals in quick succession before Boyle pulled one back. However, Deeping kept the pressure on and wrapped the game up with six more goals and not even quality goalkeeping from Pete Wells and another goal from Slater could help St Ives take anything from the game.
St Ives III 4, St Neots III 4
KEVIN Gilder swept home a last minute equaliser for the hosts in an entertaining and eventful derby.
A shoddy first half performance saw St Ives go into the half time break 4-1 down, the combination of some poor defensive lapses, strong attacking play from St Neots and controversial umpiring decisions.
However, the home side displayed their battling spirit with a rousing comeback. James Cahill struck his second goal of the game on 50 minutes, followed five minutes later by Rob Barton's close range strike. The last 10 minutes saw St Ives frantically press for the equaliser with Mike Wildespin, Andy Moore, Cahill and Richard Corbett all going close before veteran sweeper Gilder pounced gloriously to steer the ball into the top corner with only seconds remaining.

St Ives 5, Peterborough 0
IN a fantastic return to form, St Ives Ladies dominated the proceedings with many short corner chances, and found the net on five occasions to seal the win.
The breakthrough came when defender Amanda Hollands found Shelley Read who in turn picked out Juliette Fabb, who smashed the ball home.
Further goals from Fabb, Read, Kate Slater and Lydia Murray gave the hosts the victory in a much improved performance from last week.

Peterborough Town III 3, St Ives II 2
BOTH teams worked very hard through-out this match, which provided an exciting and tense game in which the hosts took the spoils.
St Ives took the lead early on in the first half through Anne Self, but a reply from Peterborough followed shortly after half time and, although the midfield and defence worked well, Peterborough managed to find the back of the net for a second time. An equaliser from Laura Loades looked set to tie the match only for Peterborough to be awarded a penalty corner on the final whistle which they converted on the fifth attempt.
St Neots Ladies I 10, Stevenage Ladies 1
SAINTS stormed to their biggest league win at the weekend, putting 10 goals in against a well-beaten Stevenage side.
A wobbly start from Saints saw Stevenage take the lead in the first few minutes of play, but this was as good as it got for the visitors who were on the end of vintage performances from hat-trick heroes Louise Watts and Sarah Moore, along with four super strikes from Sam Bradbury.
