First-half lead is not enough for Long Sutton
Long Sutton men’s first team are still looking to get off the mark this season after a 6-2 defeat to Pelicans.
They went ahead on three minutes with an excellent deflected finish from Alex Canham following great work by Tom Burton, Nick Ellis and Dan Batten.
Pelicans produced an equaliser after Sutton failed to clear a counter-attack but Josh Baker’s clinical finish restored the home advantage.
Sutton were caught out by Pelicans who levelled before half-time.
Pelicans raised their game and overpowered Sutton in the second period.
The ladies lost 4-0 to runaway leaders Cambridge South who had scored 19 goals in the opening two games.
Within five minutes they found themselves 1-0 down from a shot inches inside the D into the corner of the goal.
Another goal before half-time left Lorraine Wallis little chance then Cambridge South completed victory.
