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.
