Sweet 15 for St Ives Rangers U14

A round-up of the weekend’s Huntingdonshire colts action.


TEN first-half strikes was the reward for some great team football by the Rangers U14 Girls team against Sawston.

Five more goals followed in a comparatively sedate second period as Ives won 15-0.

Georgia Rebane blasted in five, Pheobe Webb bagged four, Tierney Poore cracked in three, with Phillipa Witherspoon, Jorgie Hall and an own goal completing the rout.

There was little joy for the hard-working U14s who suffered a 3-1 defeat to Fulbourn Falcons.

Two goals for Falcons in a five-minute spell in the first half gave them the edge, but Kieran Price gave the hosts hope when he scored. Rangers looked for the equaliser in the second half but were caught on the break.
