Eastern Region Women's Premier League
Cambridge City 3 : 0 Brentwood Town
Cambridge City took full advantage of being the only game to take place in the Eastern Region Premier Division on Sunday when they secured another three points to continue their unbeaten run. With many games falling foul of the wintry conditions, the decision to play was fully justified with the pitch passing a late morning inspection on a cold but very sunny afternoon at Trinity Old Fields.
The home side made a number of changes due to four regular first team players being unavailable but their replacements stepped up from the ever improving development team with 16 year old Freya Standing impressing on her debut. City created numerous chances in the first half but were not clinical enough in front of goal and the teams went in 0-0 at half-time.
For the second time in a week, City gave a first team debut to a 16 year old. This week it was Freya Standing. Like a duck to water!
The Lilywhites came out in the second half determined to make their greater possession tell but it was a similar story with the Brentwood defence and in particular their goal keeper playing very well to keep City at bay. A couple of chances came and went when it looked certain the hosts would score but with 15 minutes to play, Sarah Mosley put in a great cross from the right to find Shannon Shaw unmarked at the far post and she made no mistake when smashing the ball home from close range. There was only one team that looked likely to go on and win the game after the deadlock had been broken and it was Bella Simmons next on the score sheet. She drove through the heart of the Brentwood defence before sending an outrageous dummy to the visiting keeper before slotting in to an empty net for her 14th of the season.
All hands to the pump in the Brentwood six yard box
The third and final goal of the game was scored by Shaw on the stroke of full time to give City a deserved 3-0 win and increase their lead at the top of the table to six points. Still plenty of games and points up for grabs with a number of teams playing catch up due to postponements and cup competitions.
Next week, City Ladies face a trip to AFC Dunstable whilst the Development team are at home to Cambridge University.
