Cambridge City 1 : 5 Ipswich Town (SSE Women's FA Cup - 3rd QR)
|Carla Penny puts in a strong challenge
Cambridge City Ladies welcomed Ipswich Town Ladies to Trinity Old Field on Sunday - both teams keen to progress in the SSE sponsored Womenís FA Cup. The Lilywhites were a little slow out of the blocks and appeared tentative playing against higher league opposition during the opening exchanges and found themselves two goals down at half-time due to poor defending at corners on both occasions.
The hosts started the second period on the front foot and it wasn't long before they deservedly got themselves back into the game thanks to left back Lauren Tomlinson who capped a piercing run with a low drive from outside of the box that caught the visiting keeper off guard.
Pulling a goal back gave City the confidence to continue to push forward, but in reality it was Ipswich who took control of the game a little while later with their third. This goal killed the game off and by the final whistle the Suffolk side had added another two.
City manager Tim Rapley praised his side's efforts against a well drilled Ipswich outfit who played some excellent football but was disappointed to concede three goals from set pieces.
Itís back to the league on Sunday as City start a run of four consecutive home games when they host Bedford Town Ladies.

Cambridge City 10 : 0 Linton Aztecs
Half a dozen first half goals from 'in form' City had already secured all three points for the home side by the time the break came.
The visitors put up a spirited display - right to the very end - but the Lilywhites really looked comfortable and composed right from the start. Their passing and distribution was very well executed and they made certain that they won most of the 50/50 balls. The speed that City attacked constantly posed problems for the visitors.
Four more second half goals and a defensive clean sheet wrapped up the game for the Lilywhites, who, in the last two games have scored a total of 17 goals without conceding.
The goal scorers were: Isabel Bryant x 4, Freya Standing x 3 and one each for Cerys Want, Freya Goddard and Ceri Flye
Cambridge City v Histon Hornets
Finally, the under 11s had their first league game of the season against Histon Hornets. Short of defenders and goalkeeper, everyone stepped up across the pitch to fill the relevant positions. The football played was very pleasing to see especially with two new faces. City started the season with a win and will look to build on next week against Newmarket Town Youth.
Cambridge City v Histon Hornets
The under 10s were in league action against Histon Hornets looking to make it three wins from three so far this season. From the start it was evident that Histon were a very good side and quick on the counter attack. City quickly realised this and started to keep the ball on the floor and play some lovely passing football. It was very pleasing to see our work on passing and receiving in training paying off and to the girls were well rewarded with another victory.
