Girls U12 reach regionals

Sponsored by Wisbech Round Table, Wisbech HC’s Junior Section enjoyed further success in Cambridge on Sunday as the Girls U12s also qualified for the regional round of the In2 Mini Hockey Championships.

In a repeat of last week’s performance by the U10s they bounced back from a 1-0 defeat to eventual winners Cambridge City Greens to dominate against Cambridge City Yellows, but drew 0-0.

Wisbech turned on the style to beat Saffron Walden 2-0 (Alice Salmon and Hana Howsam on loan from March HC scoring) and in the semi-final St Neots 1-0 (Lizzi Burford) and qualification for the Eastern Region contest at Harleston on Sunday, April 21. Player of the Tournament: defensive stalwart Isobel Talbot who played on despite being injured in the semi-final.
