Downing and Girton are joint top of the first division having won all three of their matches. Get all the RESULTS and the LEAGUE TABLE here.
Every week, The Tab brings you a round-up of all the games in top-flight college football. Here’s the results and tables from Division 1.
Downing 2-0 Emmanuel
Downing retained their position at the top of the league as they won their third match on the bounce, beating Emma 2-0. After a scrappy and goalless first half Downing slowly took control after the restart. Captain Tom Marsh scored from the penalty spot before Sam Isaacs scored a brilliant individual goal â€“ just rewards for his selfless team play throughout the match. Downing are still on course to defend the league title they won last year and are yet to drop a point.
Girton 2-1 St. John’s
Girton are currently lying second only on goal difference as they beat Johnâ€™s 2-1. Girton are looking very strong this season having won all three of their matches. Meanwhile, Johns slipped to their third consecutive defeat, though the score was far better than the 6-1 drubbing they suffered last week at the hands of Fitz. Nevertheless, they should still be very worried as they have conceded twelve goals in the first three weekends.
Fitzwilliam 1-0 Christ’s
Fitz are the only other team yet to drop points, as they beat Christs by a single goal. Fitz had their first weekâ€™s match against St. Catz postponed or otherwise could very well be up at the top of the table with Girton and Downing. They are currently looking very good for the rest of the season.
Trinity 3-0 Pembroke
The only other result this week saw Trinity beat Pembroke 3-0 and move up to fifth in the table on six points. Pembroke are now one of three teams still looking for their first points of the season. The Jesus-Catz match was postponed until next weekend as both teams have byes in the first round of cuppers.
