Wisbech Ladies 5

Peterborough 2

Wisbech conceded inside the first two minutes but took control of the game.

They levelled through a well worked short corner, finished by Leanne Williamson. At a penalty corner Charlie Paine fired the ball past the keeper from the top of the D.

After half-time Wisbech continued to attack and another short corner resulted in Paine getting her second of the game.

Jane Peggs bagged the fourth. A run at pace from Sophie Culshaw allowed Claire Apted to make the score 5-1.

PoM: Sophie Culshaw. Next: at home to Bedford Ladies 2nd at 1pm.

Wisbech Ladies 2nd 0

Peterborough 2nd 2

Wisbech struggled to get any sort of rhythm going but held Peterborough until after half-time, thanks to two fantastic last-ditch clearances from Jodi Peggs and saves from stand-in keeper Ali Mason.

PoM: Jodi Peggs and Ali Mason. Next: away at St Neots Ladies at 1pm.

Horncastle 0

Wisbech Ladies 3rd 2

Excellent hockey was played in their first match of the season with second half goals from Shelley Coleman and Holly Stevenson.

PoM: Esme Atkins. Next: at home to Peterborough 4th at 2:30pm.

Wisbech Men 1

Saffron Walden 5

A very well-drilled Walden side took an early 2-0 lead as Wisbech struggled to gain a foothold on Saturday.

A third goal came shortly afterwards; Sam Blunt restored some hope before half-time with an excellent drag flick. The next goal after half-time was going to be crucial and Walden got it.

Man of the Match: Lee Punter.

Next week’s game is away to Spalding at 2pm.

Wisbech Men’s 2nd 1

Cambridge South 7

The first 10 minutes saw Wisbech go two well-struck goals behind.

Wisbech got a goal back thanks to a Tim Atkins strike in the D. Cambs scored twice more before half-time, then used their local knowledge of the bouncy pitch to score on the break. Olly Osborne was impressive at the back.

MoM: Richard Claxton. Next: home to St Neots at 4pm.

Wisbech Men’s 3rd 4

Cambs South 2nd 1

A strong pep talk at half-time to keep it simple led to a quick goal from Jonathan Boyall within six touches from the push back.

A tennis smash of a goal from Chris Stanhope left both teams staring in disbelief while James Williams cracked a screamer against the boards and Dom Garfoot added a lightning strike.

MoM: Mark Littlechild. Next: away to Leadenham at 2:30.

Cambs South 3rd 5

Wisbech 4th 0

Wisbech had a short corner goal struck by Elliot Peck disallowed but continued applying the pressure even though they conceded three times.

Wisbech came out strong in the second half and played much better.

MoM: Joss Calderbank and Nigel Lowe.

Next: at home to Cambs City 6th at 11:30am.
