posted in: News, Women

Cambridge’s women have lost their perfect start to the season, going down 3-2 to West Hamilton United in a tight match at Weka St.

The two teams traded goals in the first half to go into the break 2-2 with Cambridge’s goals coming from top goalscorer Rachel Hill and an own goal.

The home side found a winner in the second half to give Cambridge their first loss of the season after previous wins against Te Awamutu and Te Aroha in the Waikato Women’s B League.

Coach Andrew Taylor was pleased with his team’s performance, saying the players showed grit and had played well.

He said Sophee Rapson-Jones and captain/goalkeeper Jen Hull had given standout performances.

The women are at home next Sunday (April 29) when they play Hamilton Wanderers B, kicking off at 11am.
