HUNTINGDON Ladies won the top of the table clash against a powerful Cambridge South outfit who started with pace but created few chances.
Huntingdon looked to use their possession well and a long Bernice Bales pass found the speedy Pinky O'Neill who rattled in a fine goal.
Hunters absorbed further pressure but before half-time O'Neill tore the opposition defence to shreds and bagged a second goal.

ST NEOTS Ladies took a shock lead after ten minutes when a fine solo effort by Billie Smith put them ahead.

Harleston Magpies 2-4 St Ives 4
ST IVES got off to a solid start as they looked for the points to keep them in contention at the top of the table.
After continued pressure St Ives broke the deadlock with a coolly converted flick courtesy of Mel Wood, but they were brought back to reality when Harleston equalised from a penalty corner against the run of play.
The second half began with more pressure from Ives and the reward followed when the pace of Juliet Moynan's shot beat the keeper.
An unlucky decision against Ives gave Harleston a goal to square the score a second time, but Saints still pressed for the points.
A mix-up in the D allowed Helen Clarke to slot the ball into the back of the net to regain the lead, Clarke made it four when she collected a pass from Juliet Moynan to knock in on the back post.
