Haverhill IIs now have just one match to win in order to finish their season with a 100 per cent winning record after dispatching Wisbech Town III 6-1.

Haverhill opening the scoring through Vicky Steed after just five minutes, a lead soon doubled by Emily Page Blair.

Wisbech registered no shots on goal in the first half and Haverhill went 3-0 up when Steed swept home a Page Blair pass.

Steed added two more to her tally to make it 5-0 to the hosts at half-time.

The second half was less eventful but Page Blair added her second goal and Haverhill’s sixth.

Wisbech scored a consolation goal, but Haverhill now play Ely II on Saturday knowing victory would give them 22 wins from 22 games this season in East League Division Four North West (South).

Haverhills first team wrapped up their season in Division Three North West (South) with a 4-2 win at

March Town.

Haverhill started the stronger and soon went a goal ahead when Tina Bunch converted a rebound.

March Town soon responded and a flurry of attacks had to be defended with stand-in goalie Nicole Bailey, who had never been in goal before, saving three shots in a row before Amanda Stopps cleared off the line.

Bunch netted her second from a short corner to extend the lead but March clawed one back just before half time to leave it 2-1 going into the break.

After half-time changes in playing personnel Haverhill started to get their passing game going again and with good team play led to another goal.

Haverhill continued the pressure with Jenny Bradnam, Aisha Shu and Mandy Williamson all coming close from open play, but it was from a short corner strike that they made it 4-1.

In a carbon copy of the first half March scored another but Haverhill protected the lead to secure the win and finish the season in fifth.
