Eleanor Pybus hit the only goal as they triumphed at City of Peterborough 2nds to put their Division One North campaign back on track.

St Ives 1sts gained a valuable point in their survival battle at that level when drawing 2-2 with North Norfolk 1sts.

Captain Vicky Leighton put the locals ahead with the only breakthrough of the first half, but St Ives then found themselves behind in the second period before Ellie Burgess hit a late leveller from a short corner.

St Ives 2nds remain rooted to the bottom of the Division Two North-West table after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bourne Deeping 1sts which featured a Sally King goal.
