PUBLISHED: 12:00 08 December 2017
Saffron Walden PSG youngsters celebrated three wins out of three in their latest S-Tech Cambridgeshire Women & Girls’ League outings at the weekend.
The under-13 Blacks upset leaders Cambridge City Blue with a 3-1 win, thanks largely to a first-half hat-trick from Emily.
City increased the pressure in the second half, but stunning saves from Imy and strong defending by Megan, Charlotte and Ella kept them at bay.
Annabel, Amelia and Ellen controlled midfield areas for PSG, as Madison, Isobel and Olivia continued to attack and went close to further goals, with Issie lobbing just over the crossbar.
The under-14 girls made the long trip to Hungate Rovers Youth for a league cup tie but dominated possession from the start.
They took the lead in the 28th minutes when Ava made space in the box and teed up Kate to score.
And it was 2-0 just two minutes later when Martha collected the ball on halfway and ran past three defenders before firing home.
A third goal arrived on 33 minutes as Flo’s great ball allowed Lucy to score from close range, with Issy, Ellen, Evie and Emily standing firm in defence in the second half.
Rebecca was flawless in goal, as Mia gave her best display as a lone striker, before captain Daisy set up Martha for her second to cap a 4-0 win.

The under-12s booked a place in the last four of their league cup with a 3-2 win at St Ives Rangers.
May volleyed home from a corner taken by Beatrice, but the hosts hit back on the stroke of half time to level.
A superb solo effort by Beatrice put Saffron Walden back in front after the restart, with Jess and May having furhter efforts cleared off the line and deflected onto a post respectively.
A long-range strike from Abbey opened up a two-goal cushion as goalkeeper Harriet denied the St Ives attack and captain Lottie and Lily held firm in midfield.
Ruby looked to stretch play on the right, with Madison and Hannah providing fresh legs off the bench, before the hosts got their second with almost the last kick of the match.
