St Ives Town 2 Cogenhoe United 1

TWO second-half goals gave St Ives their fifth straight home league victory - and condemned their visitors to a fourth consecutive defeat.

Saints trailed 1-0 when Cogenhoe's Steve Diggin netted shortly before half-time but Lloyd Howard equalised just after the hour mark, latching on to a Graeme Thackray through ball.

Stefan Lewis secured victory for the home side when he showed determination to turn the ball in from a corner on 81 minutes.

Joint-manager Jez Hall said: "Cogenhoe dominated in the first half and we were grateful to Rob Mackney for some decent saves.

"We had a word at half-time and the second-half performance was much improved. They had a lot of possession in the final 10 minutes but we defended well to hold on."

Saints hosted struggling Stotfold at Westwood Road last night (Tuesday) and travel to high-flying Northampton Spencer on Saturday.

Alconbury are the visitors next Tuesday for a Hunts Premier Cup fixture.
