Cambs Nomads 2,
Wisbech Ladies 1st 1
Wisbech slumped to a frustrating defeat on Saturday with Nomads in control from the start.
They were always a threat breaking quickly through the middle, but Wisbech did make significant attacks, but could not convert.
The home team also missed chances but were awarded a short corner and bagged their first goal, after finding a deflection on the post.
Wisbech were determined that the second half would tell a different story. They started brightly but again Cambs Nomads kept the pressure up and added a second goal from a short corner as Wisbech’s chances still went begging.
Wisbech fought back valiantly and were rewarded with an expertly taken far post deflection by Hannah Strickle. They stepped up the pressure and got the ball over the line, only to see Nomads clear and the umpire let play go on.
Wisbech stay fifth in the table and are at home to former Premier outfit Lowestoft on Saturday.

Wisbech Ladies seconds maintained second position in the Cambridgeshire Premier League within two points of the leaders after this win.
They trailed 1-0 early in the first half but came out the well deserved winners in a game which at times was sluggish and congested in the middle of the field. Emily Brooker (pom) showed superb discipline at centre back. The first Wisbech goal came from some determined work from Laura Overland and was made certain by Gilly Dunn returning from injury. Polly Rosier never failed to pick up the ball in the most difficult situations and was rewarded with a fantastic goal to clinch the match.
Wisbech play leaders Rutland on November 24. Indoor Thursday 6.30 Wisbech Grammar School. All welcome. Club contacts on the website www.wisbechtownhockeyclub.co.uk
