Cambridge women’s team shared the points after a thrilling 3-3 draw with Northern United in the Waikato Women’s A-League.
The draw extended the team’s unbeaten run to five games and keeps them in contention for a late run at the division title, especially with a match next week against leaders West Hamilton United.
Cambridge’s goals were scored by Astrid Howarth – her 20th of the season – Abby Cook (from the penalty spot) and Amy Ireland who netted the goal of the day with a superbly struck free kick.
Amy Ireland was also named the Hill Homes Player of the Day and coach Andrew Taylor also singled out Carey Ireland and Chrissy Goodin for their outstanding performances.
Next Sunday (August 5), Cambridge travel to West Hamilton United’s Bremworth Park for an 11am game.
On Sunday August 12, Cambridge go into the semi-finals of the Waikato Women’s Cup with a cup tie at Galloway Park.
