Horncastle 2 St Ives II 0

SAINTS paid the price for a slow start to the game, conceding two goals inside 15 minutes. The visitors clawed their way back into the game but the closest they came to reducing the deficit was when Barry Wickson's penalty corner struck a post. Saints forced a succession of short corners but could find no way through and were indebted to debut-making goalkeeper Shayne Paterson for keeping down the score.

THE scoreline does not show the true nature of this hard-fought encounter between two high-flying sides. Two goals before half-time put paid to the home side's promising start and the performance was punctuated by some sloppy mistakes throughout the team. A half-time reshuffle shored up the Saints defence but Wisbech hit twice on the break to secure the win.

Meanwhile, Saints IV lost out 6-1 at home to Newmarket. Saints substitute Richard Corbett converted Ian Chitty's cross for the last-minute consolation goal.
