THREE was the magic number for St Ives as two players scored hat-tricks in a 7-3 friendly defeat of Cambridge City II on Saturday.

Kate Slater and Helen Clarke gave Saints a boost going into the resumption of league duties this weekend.

Captain Vicky Leighton, on the eve of her birthday, will have been delighted with her team's display which replicated the form they had shown in the early part of the season.

A fluid team performance saw excellent possession, support play and short, sharp passing outclass the visitors from Cambridge.

St Ives went in 3-1 up at the break thanks to one apiece from the hat-trick heroes and another from Ally Brennan.
