Good work by Louise Watts set up strike partner Sarah Moore for a goal before Watts herself found the net shortly afterwards. The home side were 3-0 up at half time thanks to a second for Moore just before the break. Their dominance continued in the second half and Watts bagged her second from a short corner. Meanwhile St Neots Ladies 2nd XI slipped to a 2-1 defeat at West Herts while the 3rd XI triumphed 7-0 against Stevenage 4th XI. St Ives Ladies 2 Peterborough Ladies 1 FOLLOWING on from last week's victory against Watton, Saints narrowly defeated local rivals Peterborough.

St Ives Men 3 City of Peterborough 4th XI 1 TWO goals from Derrick Pope and another from Ben Scarrow gave Saints their first victory of the season over the newly formed visiting team. Meanwhile the 2nd XI were drawing 1-1 with Ely City 2nd XI. Richard Corbett's first half strike was not enough and Saints paid for the price for missing their chances when Ely equalised after the break. The 3rd XI went down to a narrow 1-0 loss at Peterborough, and were left cursing their luck after seeing a late penalty appeal turned down. The 4th XI slipped to a 2-1 home defeat by Alford despite a goal from Tim McGlashan.
