With one minute remaining, the icing was put on the cake as the twins once again linked up from a neat short corner routine for the fifth goal.

Cambridgeshire Ladies' Premier League

Cambs City III 2 Wisbech Town II 0

A LATE goal put the game beyond Wisbech's reach.

An even first half saw the visitors have the better of the chances but it remained goalless at half-time.

The Wisbech build up of attacks by Katie, Georgina (player of the match) and Gilly Dunn, Shelley Jones and Jane Littlechild was of goof quality but they never quite got to the finishing strike needed to score.

Good performances from Ali Mason and Sue Atter managed to keep City at bay.

But mid-way through the second half breakaway attacks leaving the Wisbech mid-field and defence over stretched.

The first Cambs breakthrough was a converted penalty flick, and shortly before time they scored from a good flowing move.
