Dereham Ladies 3, Cambridge Uni 0

In spite of absences and injuries Dereham won 3-0 to stay top of the East Premier League.

Dereham defended superbly against bottom of the league Cambridge and Jess Perser in goal hardly touched the ball. Dereham's forwards Evie Gardner Hannah Palmer and Holly Allen ran riot through Cambridge's defence and each scored a goal.

Gemma Nicholls in centre midfield controlled the game well and Georgie Edwards played well.

Chloe Hobson in centre defence coordinated the back four with skill and made sure that the Cambridge attack was always blunted.

The season is coming down to a four-way shoot-out between Dereham, Holcombe, Canterbury and Maidstone.

In East Men's Hockey League Premier A, Dereham's search for their first points of the season goes on after the conceded two late goals against former National League outfit City of Peterborough.

Rob Turner went close for Dereham in the first half while Sam Plater and Will Edwards did likewise after the break.

Peterborough broke the deadlock eight minutes from time through a short corner.

Keeper Tom Vaughan kept out the first shot, but the rebound fell to a Peterborough forward who was able to push the ball home.

With little time left, Dereham pushed for an equaliser, but were caught on the counter attack as Peterborough made it 2-0.
