Writtle 0 : 2 Cambridge City
Cambridge City were back on their travels having enjoyed home comforts for the last five weeks and were looking to continue their winning run. Playing away to Writtle, who sat second in the league, City knew that three points would take them above their opponents and possibly top of the table if results went their way. In tricky conditions, the Lilywhites tried to get the ball down and play and were enjoying the better of the early exchanges and looked threatening going forward, although City had Tee Mhunduru to thank for keeping the scores level when she tipped a fierce shot onto the bar. The save proved even more important when from the resulting rebound off the bar City went on the attack with Lolly Tomlinson hitting a superb strike from 30 yards out that flew over the keeper’s head to make it one nil. The conditions favoured City in the first half but despite their possession they couldn’t extend their lead and went in with just the one goal advantage at the break.
As expected Writtle came out fired up for the second half and the visitors had to defend well and remain strong for long periods under increasing pressure but their concentration was good and clear cut chances were kept to a minimum. City always looked to counter quickly and they doubled the advantage with fifteen minutes to go when Charlotte Gillies, attacking down City’s right, evaded a couple of challenges before firing the ball past the Writtle keeper from a tight angle. A second successive clean sheet ensured City took all three points and secured their sixth consecutive victory.
With Billericay dropping points at home to Sudbury and the withdrawal of Lowestoft from the league, the win puts City top of the league.

Histon Hornets 1 : 6 Cambridge City
City made the short trek across town to face third place Histon and it proved a very worthwhile trip, returning with three valuable points.
In reality, the Lilywhites had taken a firm grip on the game after only 20 minutes when Morgan Want had already completed a quick fire hat trick. City were moving the ball well, constantly pinning the hosts back into their half. It remained 3 - 0 to the visitors going into the break.
The second period saw City double their score; captain Katie Stancombe capped a great solo run by striking home, glancing the woodwork on the way in. Morgan Want unselfishly laid on Katy Ruston for the fifth, who made absolutely no mistake with a great connection and Want, who had troubled the home defence all day, popped up again to add her fourth.

Cambridge City 2 : 0 March Park Rangers
This was great end to end football from both sides, with the first chance coming from the visiting side when captain Holly had a shot cleared off the line.
City were comfortable across the middle of the pitch with Sarah, Lina and Rosie creating a forward threat. A newly formed partnership between Maddy and Evie; a fantastic through ball from Maddy saw Evie's bullet of a shot saved and Maddy fired home the rebound!
Girl of the match Lina, in the middle of the park, winning every ball and in every challenge. Maddy finding the net again with a beautiful run down the right, slotting bottom left to get her second of the game. 2-0 to City.
March hit the post and so did Ellie for City after beating the keeper in a 1:1 situation.
City are still unbeaten in the league - it's fantastic to see the girls improving every week.
