Vikings II came from behind to beat promotion-chasing Cambridge City III at the Paradise Centre, despite losing Sarah Graves after 10 minutes when the visitors were already in front.

Vikings had to play the rest of the game with seven players because they had no female substitutes, but managed to equalise when Olly Watts scored from a free pass.

A running-in shot from Harriet Watts then made it 2-1, and Jerram Davies scored from close range to put Vikings further ahead.

Cambridge - equal second in CKA Division Two - set up a tense finish by pulling one back, but missed a late opportunity to level the scores as Vikings held on to take both points.

1st Attack: Rob Wootton, Olly Watts, Sarah Graves, Liz Ruse.

Defense: Jon Smith, Jerram Dawes, Harriet Watts, Sam Duffield.
