CAM eased the pain of losing a two goal advantage against Broadwell the week before by beating Ruardean Hill to remain top of the league.
Playing against a very strong wind, Cam Played Ruardean off the park for long spells without scoring.
Callum Dummelow linked up well with Luke Morrissey and should have scored on 15 minutes, but saw his effort come back off the post.
Shorty after Aaron Nash opened up the defence only to see his effort cannon back off the bar.
Cam did get the goal they deserved on 30 minutes. Morrissey was beating his man at will, and a great cross from him created a goal mouth scramble with Aaron Booth knocking home from close range.
In the second half both teams were treated to a storm of hail, rain, sleet and high winds, but still tried to play good passing football.
Cam got their second on the hour when Ashley Caldwell was put through on goal and he side-footed past an advancing keeper from 18 yards.
The pitch became very boggy with all the heavy rain and it seemed like it was just going to finish with Cam still on top as they had been for most of the game when a hopeful punt upfield skidded on the wet pitch through to goalkeeper Ben Jagger, who had to head it as his was out of his area. However, it went back goalbound, with captain Chris Lindsay blocking it, only for it to be knocked home at the second attempt.
Cam managed to see the remaining five minutes out to rightfully collect three more points.
The Bulldogs expect a very close and hard game away at Dursley on Saturday, weather permitting.
