Harleston Magpies Ladies are up to fourth after a 2-0 win over Cambridge City.
An even contest saw the first half finish goalless but the home side got their noses in front three minutes into the second half when Jess Bloom played in Charlotte Harrison, who finished the move by expertly placing the ball into the corner of the goal.
Just before the end of the third quarter, Magpies extended their advantage with Cherry Seaborn converting a penalty corner from the left post.
