And in the process the city side ended the 100 per cent record of East Mid­lands Premier Divi­sion lead­ers Mans­field Town by claim­ing a cred­itable 2-2 draw at the week­end.

Mans­field pow­ered into the driv­ing seat when notch­ing twice early in the sec­ond pe­riod, but Star re­fused to roll over.

Julie Ikeda slashed the deficit be­fore Chelsea Stan­ford spec­tac­u­larly lev­elled with a 25-yard vol­ley.

Star thought they had snatched vic­tory when Jade Ramm struck late on but her ef­fort was wiped out for a dan­ger­ous chal­lenge on the Mans­field keeper.

Star boss Chris Lyon said: “We were short of play­ers and had a night­mare trip up there, so com­ing away with a point is a tremen­dous re­sult.

“There’s a real de­ter­mi­na­tion in our team now that has never been there be­fore. If we go be­hind in a game we al­ways be­lieve we’ll get back into it.”

NORTH­ERN Star Re­serves’ hopes of de­but sea­son hon­ours were dented.

The city club’s sec­ond string went down to a 3-2 home de­feat at the hands of bo­gey team God­manch­ester in the Cambs Women’s League.

Cady Carolis­sen twice lev­elled for Star be­fore they were beaten de­spite some hero­ics from Sarah Galpin in goal.

RIVER­SIDE Un­der 15s con­tin­ued their charge to­wards the Cambs Girls League crown by tak­ing their 100 per cent start into dou­ble-fig­ures.

Cherry Hin­ton Lions were tamed 15-0 at the week­end as the city girls notched up their 10th suc­ces­sive vic­tory.

The goals were shared by Kier Perkins (5), Ale­sia Mundo (4), Jess Black­bird (2), Ge­orgie El­som (2), Alexa Hunter and Katie Plumb, the team’s reg­u­lar goal­keeper who played in an out­field po­si­tion in the sec­ond half.

AFC WHIT­TLE­SEY Un­der 15s cer­tainly hold the In­dian sign over Witch­ford.

The lo­cal lasses tri­umphed when the teams met in the Cambs Cup fi­nal last sea­son and they were vic­to­ri­ous again in Cambs League ac­tion at the week­end.

And it was by a far big­ger mar­gin than the sin­gle-goal show­piece suc­cess as Whit­tle­sey racked up an 8-0 tri­umph.

An­nie Pos­nett led the way with a hat-trick, Gemma Fitzjohn scored twice and Stacy Row­ley, Eden White and Leah An­thony got the oth­ers.

NETHER­TON Di­a­monds Un­der 15s boosted their Mid-shires League ti­tle bid by sink­ing Ket­ter­ing Town.
