Women clinch second place in A-League with 3-1 win

Cambridge came from behind to beat old rivals Claudelands Rovers 3-1 in a win that makes sure the team takes second place in this year’s Waikato A League.

Trailing 1-0 at John Kerkhof Park, Cambridge recovered in the second half with goals from Fairlie Morton and Astrid Howarth (2).

Coach Andrew Taylor named Georgia Bellamy-Hill and Caitlyn Varcoe as the Hill Homes Players of the Day.

The score was a repeat of last weekend’s 3-1 Waikato Women’s Cup semi-final win against Rovers.

Cambridge have two games left in their season – next Sunday’s cup final against West Hamilton United and an away fixture at Matamata Swifts, still to be scheduled.

Astrid Howarth’s two goals against Rovers have lifted her above Rachel Hill in the race for this season’s women’s Golden Boot.
