How our teams fared at the weekend

Cambridge’s women’s team are in the last four of the Waikato Women’s Cup, thanks to a hat-trick by Caitlyn Varcoe in the team’s 3-2 win against Tokoroa.

It was the club’s highlight of the weekend as Cambridge’s senior men’s teams found the net plenty of times but couldn’t find a win.

Loaded WaiBOP Championship

Once again, the club’s third team came out of a high-scoring game on the wrong end of a result, losing this match 3-2 to Otumoetai.

Cambridge put up a great fight against Otumoetai and were leading with 20 minutes to go.

The two teams were even in the first half, going into the sheds 1-1 thanks to a Peter Buesnel goal for Cambridge.

Another Buesnel goal gave Cambridge a 2-1 lead halfway through the second spell but late goals to Otumoetai ensured a 3-2 win and that the league points would go back over the Kaimai Ranges. Scorers for Otumoetai were Liam Duncanson (2) and Jonny Hill.
