Hockey round-up: Five-star Ely Ladies respond in style
- Credit: Archant
Ely Ladies’ seconds responded to their disappointing 0-0 stalemate with Bury St Edmunds thirds last week in goal-scoring style by finding the net five times against a hapless Newmarket.
The seconds’ five-goal haul was their third match unbeaten in Division Four North-West (South).
The Ladies’ firsts were also in fine form, notching six against Spalding thirds in a 6-1 triumph.
The firsts have now bagged 13 goals in their last two Division Three North-West matches.
Ely thirds weren’t so successful, however, after falling to a humiliating 9-0 defeat to Cambrige Nomads.

The thirds have the unenviable task of occupying bottom place in Division Four North-West (South) after not picking up a win all season.
They will also be wincing when vieiwing their goal difference, which stands at an embarrassing minus 105.

Elsewhere, Ely men’s firsts fell eight points behind league leaders Cambridge South firsts in their quest for Division Three North-West glory after their clash with Long Sutton seconds was postponed.
Unfortunately for Ely, the club’s second and third men’s teams failed to experience success, as both fell to 5-0 defeats.
Ely men’s seconds came up against high-flying Spalding seconds, but were no match for the side in second who plundered five goals and condemned Ely to relegation from Division Four North-West.
Ely City thirds are also in trouble after being handed a 5-0 trouncing by Cambridge Nomads thirds.
The thirds have achieved just one win all season, and, like club’s second team, seem set for relegation from Division Six North-West (South).
