Blackstones 2-1 St Ives Town ---
ST IVES Town's long winning run came to an end on Saturday as they failed to make the most of their chances against a clinical Blackstones side.
With a 100 per cent record away from home in the UCL, St Ives were favourites against opposition that had lost five of their last 10 games, but poor finishing cost them dearly.
