Dragons see unbeaten run taken away by students

EAST WOMEN's LEAGUE: Norwich Dragons surrendered their 100pc start following a 4-0 defeat at Cambridge University in Division One.

Cambridge went ahead early on with a penalty stroke and doubled their lead following a short corner. Dragons improved but could not reduce the deficit before half-time.

The visitors maintained the momentum in the second half as Claire Baker and Marie James went close, but Cambridge added two more to kill the game off.

Sprowston survived a late fightback from UEA to win 3-2 in Division 2NE.

Sam Tea slammed in Sprowston's first before UEA equalised with a breakaway goal. Tea fed Amy Butler at the start of the second half to restore Sprowston's lead and player of the match Marie Hood flicked in a third. UEA managed a second goal and despite a nervy last five minutes, Sprowston held on to take the points.

Norwich City's winning start to the season was halted with a 3-1 loss to Carlton Park in 2NE.

Carlton Park took a two-goal advantage going into the second half, before City captain Deb Painter reduced the deficit from a short corner. City pressed for an equaliser, but instead were hit by a third goal for Park.
