posted in: News, Women

Cambridge women’s team have made an impressive start to their schedule in the Waikato Women’s A League.

Having been promoted from the B division, Cambridge beat Hamilton Wanderers 6-1 at Porritt Stadium.

Leading goalscorers Rachel Hill and Astrid Howarth both scored hat-tricks, with Howarth netting two long-range efforts which are becoming her trademark this season.

Coach Andrew Taylor said Maria Cameron, Chrissy Goodin and Gemma Martin controlled the middle of the park, and Cambridge’s backline was solid.

He named right back Abby Cook as the Hill Homes Player of the Day.
