Ely City ladies battled to bring home the points when they travelled to Bury St Edmunds to play.
Unfortunately, due to a waterlogged astro pitch, Ely City men’s first, men’s second and ladies thirds home matches were cancelled.
However, second place in the league, Ely City Ladies 1st XI though travelled away to face fourth place Bury St Edmunds 2nd XI team, for an early morning push back.
They were hoping to continue their winning ways,as they were only three points behind top of the league. A win would see them continue to put the pressure on for first place.
It was a tough game but Ely City battled until the end and with a goal from Rhianne Jones ended the match with a 1-0 win.
Ely City Ladies seconds travelled to Newmarket to play their 2nd XI.
Despite heavy rain, play ended with Ely City pressing hard and spending a lot of time in the attacking 25.
Newmarket had a few breaks but with some great defending and fantastic saves by goalie Evie Flack, Ely City kept them at bay.
When the Newmarket goalie was yellow carded and sent off for five minutes, it looked as though City might earn their first three points of the season but it wasn’t to be.
The match ended in a 0-0 draw and Ely City earning their first point of the season
