PHOTO GALLERY: Home defeat for Spalding's ladies
Spalding ladies suffered a third successive defeat at Glen Park on Saturday.
They were beaten 2-1 by St Ives 2nd despite early pressure.
Donna Chester-O'Neill made a phenomenal diving save when St Ives were awarded a penalty flick to keep the scores level.
Spalding skipper Karen Timby was injured while charging down a short corner then, in the second period, she made a reappearance for five minutes before taking a deflected ball to the eye.
With Timby gone, it was left to the remaining squad to lead the charge but Spalding squandered chances.
Two short corners led to two goals for St Ives.
Kelly Slater slammed home a scrappy goal to set up an exciting finish but St Ives held on to take the win.
Meanwhile, the men's first team lost 9-1 to third-placed I-ES. Stu Cunnington scored a delightful reverse stick goal early in the second half but I-ES added four more goals.
Spalding's under-14s won 6-2 at Bedford thanks to goals from Harry Naylor (2), Joseph Moisey (2), Oli Dring and George Morris.
