Two draws were the best results by Cambridge senior men’s teams in Saturday games at John Kerkhof Park.
The Reds drew their Northern League derby with Claudelands Rovers 1-1 while the D1s drew with the same scoreline against Te Awamutu in their Waikato Division 3 match.
Here’s how our teams fared at the weekend:
