It was a scrappy game in which Cambridge (and Coventry) somehow failed to find the net in a four-minute period during which Coventry played a man down due to a brutality offence. It all got very tense in the final stages, when a splendid, top-corner save by Cambridge's ex-GB goalkeeper Andy Knight, proved crucial just before the winner from Ludford (Photo: Trevor Hyde).
York made a dazzling start against Rotherham Metro. Before the end of the first period, they had raced into a 6-0 lead - only for it all to go horribly wrong. Just 26 seconds into the third period, Rotherham had fought back to take the lead for the time at 8-7 thanks to a fine long shot from Neil Swainson. From then on, Rotherham dominated, eventually winning 19-12, including five goals from Dan Hunt.
Rotherham are now guaranteed a top five place - and a move up to Championship 3 - along with Hucknall, who maintained a 100 per cent record after five games by defeating the Army 14-7. Tyldesley beat Bridgefield 19-12, featuring another nine-goal haul by Addison Brown.
