The freezing weather had an impact on this weekend’s hockey matches with both Ely City Mens 1s and Ladies 2s matches having to be cancelled due to frozen pitches.
Ely City Ladies 1s though continued in their bid to gain promotion with a 4-1 win at home against local rivals March Town 1s. Sarah Sutton scored two goals and Jo Rayner and Dani Fletcher scored one each. Captain Rachel Carpenter said ‘It wasn’t our best performance of the season but it was a win all the same!’
The Mens 2s were up against top of the league Cambridge South 4s. Despite battling hard and several good chances on goal, Cambridge South’s goalie proved too good and Ely City lost 3-1. Captain Julien Porre commented ‘We had a strong team out and it was a disappointing result against strong opposition.’
Ely City Mens 3s though were more fortunate with a 0-0 draw against St Neots 5s.
